Jenn Air Dutch Door Refr Model #JFC2089HTB Crisper Drawer

Jenn Air Dutch Door Refr Model #JFC2089HTBCrisper DrawerProblem #1: Crisper Drawer Rails on one of the Crisper Drawer sides broke 10 years ago. I repaired, but the repair is unattractive; it is functional, albeit ugly. What is the lowest cost source for a new Crisper Drawer? Retail Suppliers on the WEB want $45 plus shipping charges which seem incredibly expensive. Is there a less expensive source?Problem #2: Left "Dutch" door does not close reliably. Sometimes the air pressure pushes the right door open. Sometimes the left door does not close. Either way, one door is open and the alarm sounds until someone retraces their steps and closes the door. We think it likely that Whirlpool engineers have developed a fix by now. If so, please let us know how to get the parts needed to fix this very annoying problem.JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Appliance Technician. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason. Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: Actually it is a Jenn Air (owned by Whirlpool. The model is JFC2089HTB. It was placed in service in December of 2006.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: I canJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: Did you read all that I wrote above. I think that should be sufficient.
