I have a Maytag refrigerator (junk -- please don't buy one), model
RSW2400CAE. The pull out drawers for veggies, etc. are mounted under the
glass shelves, and I can't see how to disassemble them so I can clean the
underside of the glass (ours has mold). There are no obvious screws, clips,
etc. Anyone know how these come apart?
Sorry -- I should have been more clear. Yes, two of the drawers just slide
out, but the "gunk" is between the glass and the remaining metal frame that
holds it. It's visible from the refrigerator, and looks nasty.
The other "drawer" is the meat/cheese drawer, and it hangs from a
shelf -- so the entire underside of the shelf is inaccessible unless I can
separate it from the drawer.
I'm sure there's a spot I'm supposed to pry a piece off of on these, but
given the fragility this appliance has displayed over the years, I don't
want to take any chances...

I don't have a Maytag. I have a Kenmore (GE) side by side, and most of
the shelves hang from brackets on the back wall (similar to shelftrack
brackets for walls) which makes them all height adjustable. The lowest
shelf is mounted to brackets on the sides of the refrigerator with screws.
We have the same or similar Maytag refrigerator for 4 or 5 years with no
complaints. I think you may be looking too closely. The shelf simply sits
on 2 side mounted posts in the front and engages the track in the back.
Depending on which shelf it is, some have trims on either end to hold
the glass into place, some of the criper covers just need the end of
the glass lifted and then pulled or pushed to release it. This may
