2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INVENTOR. WILLIAM R. .TEWELL mmzh HIS ATTORNEY United States Patent 2,843,441 STORAGE CABINET DRAWER ASSEMBLY William R. Jewell, Lyndon, Ky., assignor to General Electric Company, a corporation of New York Application October 16, 1956, Serial No. 616,230

9 Claims. (Cl. 312-301) ble, drawers are generally preferred to shelves for the storage of materials at below-counter levels. In the case of undercounter freezers, refrigerators and rcfrigeratorfreezer combinations, all of which comprise relatively large refrigerated storage compartments below co-unter- I level, maximum storage volume is normally obtained when the access opening to such compartments is closed by a single closure member. By employing a single closure member, maximum storage volume is obtained due to the elimination of the usual mullion or divider normally provided between the adjacent drawers. in addition the provision of a single drawer front for closing the access opening to a refrigerated compartment keeps at a minimum the total space between the cabinet and the closure member which must be sealed by a sealing gasket or the like in order to maintain the desired refrigerating temperatures within the refrigerated compartment.

It is therefore a primary object of the present invention to provide a storage drawer assembly including a single.

closure member or drawer front particularly adapted for use in connection with refrigerated compartments.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a drawer assembly including a removable storage bin or receptacle and means operative when such bin or receptacle is in its normal position to limit the forward or opening travel of the drawer. V

A more specific object of the invention is to provide a drawer assembly including superimposed removable storage bins or containers normally arranged to travel with the drawer assembly and means whereby the upper bin can be moved rearwardly to provide access to the lower bin when the drawer assembly is in its open position and returned to its normal position relative to the drawer assembly when the drawer is closed.

Further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent as the following description proceeds and the features of novelty which characterize the invention will be pointed out with particularity in the claims annexed to and forming a part of this specification.

In carrying out the objects of the present invention there is provided a drawer assembly for a storage compartment, the drawer assembly including a pair of interconnected slides and cooperating supports for supporting the assembly. A storage pan or bin is normally supported within the framework formed by the interconnected slides and stop means actuated by the removable pan or bin when in its normalposition is adapted to limit the forward or opening movement of the drawer assembly. In one embodiment of the invention there is also provided a second storage pan or bin removably supported by the drawer assembly framework and movable therewith. Means are also provided whereby this secondpan or bin "ice normally disposed above the first pan can be independently moved rearwardly when the drawer assembly is open, and automatically returned to its normal position upon closure of the drawer assembly.

For a better understanding of the invention reference may be had to the accompanying drawings in which:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view, partly in section, of a refrigerator cabinet including the drawer assembly of the present invention;

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary side elevational view showing the construction of the drawer and its supporting slides and tracks at one side of the cabinet when the drawer is in its closed position;

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 with the drawer in a partially opened position; and 1 Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken generally along line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

Referring to Fig. 1 of the drawing, there is shown a refrigerator cabinet including an inner liner 1 forming a storage compartment 2 for foodstuffs requiring refrigeration. This compartment is disposed in the lower half or portion of the cabinet below a second storage compartment 3. It is therefore below what may be termed normal counter height so that access to the contents thereof can be more readily obtained when the contents are contained in drawers rather than on shelves positioned Within the compartment 2. The compartment 2 is maintained at desired storage temperatures by means of an evaporator 4 having one section 5 arranged along the lower and rear walls of the compartment and a second section 6 along the top of the compartment on which ice trays may be stored. The evaporator 4 forms part of the refrigerating system including a motor compressor unit 7 and a condenser (not shown).

The access opening to the storage compartment 2 is closed by a closure member in the form of a drawer front 8 and the space between the drawer front 8 and the face of the cabinet is sealed by means of a gasket 9 extending around the peripheral edge of the drawer front 8.

The drawer front 8 is part of the improved drawer assembly of the present invention. In the modification of the invention shown, this drawer assembly includes a pair of spaced slides 10 connected together by front and rear cross members 11 and 12 to form an open cradle or framework for supporting a removable storage pan 14 by means of the rim or edge portions 15 of the storage pan which overlap and rest'on the framework. The drawer front 8 is suitably secured to the forward end portions of the drawer slides 10.

This drawer assembly is slidably supported within the compartment 2 by drawer supports 16 secured to the opposite side walls 17 of the compartment 2. In order that the entire weight of the storage drawer assembly and its contents will not be carried merely by the liner walls 17, the drawer supports 16 preferably extend through the rear wall 18 of the liner and are provided with thermal insulating means for adjustably securing the rear ends of the supports 16 to the outer cabinet case 21.

For a more detailed description of the drawer assembly and support arrangement reference is made to Figs. 2, 3 and 4 of the drawing. As shown in Fig. 4 of the drawing, each of thedrawer supports 16 are of a channel or U- shaped cross section and the legs thereof extend inwardly from the compartment side walls 17 to form upper and lower track sections and guides 19 and 20*. Each of the slides 10 also comprise U-shaped portions disposed between the upper and lower track sections 19 and 20, and a plurality of rollers are provided on the slides 10 and drawer supports 16 to facilitate opening and closing of the drawer assembly. Specifically, the forward ends 22 of the slides 10 are supported byrollers 23 mounted on a flange 24 formingpart of the drawer supports 16. A second pair of rollers carried on the rear end of the slides it) ride between the upper and lower track sections 19 and 20, contacting one or the otherof these two sections depending upon the position of the drawer relative to the drawer supports 16. Another set of rollers 26 which a e also secured to the slides adjacent the rear ends thereof normally ride on the base portions of the supports 16 to prevent frictional engagement of the slides it with the supports 16 upon any sideward movement of the drawer assembly.

In order to maintain the drawer assembly in a closed position and bias the drawer front and gasket 9 into sealing engagement with the cabinet space surrounding the access opening to the compartment 2, there is provided a spring biased latch 28 pivotally connected by means a pin 29 to the forward ends of the slides lit for contact with roller 23. As is shown more fully in Pig. 2 of the drawing, this latch comprises a first sloping bottom side 30 which causes the member 28 to ride over the roller 23 when the drawer is brought in to its closed position and a second rearwardly sloping section 31 which engages the surface of the roller 23 when the drawer is in its closed position. A spring 33 biasing the section 31 of the latch member 28 downwardly against the surface of the roller 23 causes the latch, in cooperation with the roller 23, to urge the drawer in a rearward or gasket sealing direction. Spring 33 is so constructed that, while it will urge the latch member 28 into the desired gasket sealing position,

the application of an opening force on the handle 34 affixed to the drawer front 8 causes the latch member 23 to ride upwardly over the roller 23 so that the drawer can be readily opened.

Forward or opening movement of the drawer is limited by means of a stop 36 pivotally connected to the rear cross member 12 by a pin 37. This stop, which prevents accidental removal of the drawer from the cabinet, includes a first arm 38 normally engaged by the rim of the pan 14 and held in a depressed position such that a second arm 39 of the stop is positioned beneath the lower track of the drawer support 16 where it will contact the rear edge 40 of flange 28 when the drawer assembly is in the open or access position to prevent further move-- ment of the drawer outwardly of the compartment 2.

In order to remove the entire drawer assembly from the compartment 2 as for example when it becomes desirable to clean the interior walls of the compartment, it is necessary only to remove the pan 14 from the support ing framework whereupon the pivoted stop 36 is free to swing to the dotted line position shown in Fig. 4 in which .the second arm 39 of the stop will clear the stop engaging edge 40 so that the entire drawer assembly can be withdrawn from the compartment.

For most efficient usage, it is of course desirable that the depth of a storage drawer or bin such as the bin lid be kept within certain limits depending upon the material to be stored therein. In the case of the usual frozen foods stored in a refrigerated compartment, it is frequently desirable to limit the depth of any one drawer receptacle and to provide more than one storage bin. In order to do this in accordance with the present invention while still retaining a single closure member for the access opening to the refrigerated compartment, there is provided a second or upper storage bin 43 which is supported by the same drawer assembly as that supporting the lower pan 14 and which is normally movable with the drawer assembly when the drawer is opened or closed.

- For access to the lower pan 14 when the drawer is in its open position, this upper pan 43 is so supported on the supporting framework and the supports 16 that it can be moved rearwardly back into the storage compartment 2 'thus exposing the contents of the lower pan 14. To accomplish this result in accordance with the present invention, the upper pan 43 is provided with a pair of rollers 44 which normally ride on the upper tracks 19 forming part of the supports 16 and the forward end of the pan 43 is supported on the slides 19 by means of a pair of legs 45. Means for anchoring or indexing the upper pan 43 relative to the slides 10 are provided in the form of indentations 46 provided in the upper surface of the slides 10 adapted to receive the feet or pads 48 provided on the legs 45.

When the drawer assembly is moved to its open position, the feet 43 resting in the indentations 46 cause the pan to move forwardly with the remainder of the drawer assembly exposing the contents of the upper pan 43. If access is desired to the lower pan 14, it is necessary merely to lift or move the forward edge of the pan 43 to a position in which the feet 43 clear the indentations 46 in which the position of the upper pan d3 can he slid rearwardly as indicated in Fig. 3 with the feet 48 sliding along the upper surface of the guides 10. This rearward movement of the upper pan :3 when the drawer is in its open position is limited by means of a stop St on one or both of the upper track sections 19 located at a point in which the rollers 44 are normally positioned When the drawer is in a closed position with the feet 48 resting in the indentations as. By this arrangement it is not necessary to return the pan 43 to its normal position directly above the lower pan 14 before the drawer assembly is closed. Closing of the drawer while the rollers 44 are in contact with the stop 5%} causes the upper pan 43 to remain stationary within the compartment so that the legs 45 slide along the slides 10 during closing movement of the remaining portions of the drawer assembly and finally drop into the indentations 46 as the drawer reaches its normally closed position. Subsequent opening of the drawer then again causes the pan 43 to move forwardly along with the remainder of the drawer assembly.

From the above description it will be seen that there has been provided in accordance with the present invention, a simple and efficient drawer structure particularly adapted for the storage of frozen or refrigerated foodstuffs. In addition to providing positive means for maintaining the drawer in a closed and gasket sealing position, the invention also includes one or more storage bins or containers which can be readily removed from the drawer assembly for cleaning purposes without removing the entire assembly from the storage compartmerit. The invention is particularly useful in connection with relatively large compartments of a height such that more than one storage bin is desirable. For such applications, there is provided a second or upper storage bin or pan which is not only separately removable from the storage compartment when the drawer is in its open position but which also includes means whereby it can be returned to within the storage compartment to provide ready access to the lower pan and thereafter will index to its normal position relative to the drawer assembly merely upon closing of the drawer.

While specific embodiments of this invention have been shown and described, it is not desired that the invention be limited to the particular construction shown and described and it is intended by'the appended claims to cover all such modifications within the true spirit and scope of the invention.
