Free IKEA spare parts

Found 24th Jul 2017
I have encountered a problem with IKEA dishwasher sliding door kit. One, tiny plastic part broke and I was unable to fix it. I went to IKEA to try to get just the tiny plastic bit. I was told that spare parts for IKEA comes free posted to home address. I wasn't even asked to confirm that I have ever ordered anything from them.

i bought a bed and was missing the slats thr frame the legs and the bolts.. sent it out no questions asked. got myself a free bed
I went online and said my new bed was missing parts.

I selected all the parts from the online form, sides, top bottom, slats, bolts, nuts and frame.
All the parts arrived and I now have a free bed, all that was required was assembly.
erm, isn't that stealing?

Tiny plastics or metal shelf holder could be free. my own experiences. But when it comes to a broken mirror on a wardrobe. NO! says reciept needed which I forgot somewhere years ago. So maybe with receipt you could get spare parts for free.
Yea they're surprisingly good at it. I once got a kitchen stool in the reduced section because it didn't have the right feet pads, and after ringing them they just sent me some.
Bought a 2nd hand table with 2 leg bolts missing. Rang them up they posted spares out same day

Ooh, Johnny Cash song springing to mind. Hot.
For those who have Malm drawers and so on you can get freebie tethers to ensure they don't topple over. Handy for those who have kids.
they usually have spare nuts buts etc in customer services on the wall in pick boxes.

ordered thanks
Did you go in store to do this? My side panel one the bissa shoe cabinet needs changing as one drawer keeps popping out. I called up yesterday and because it's just over a year old they said take the receipt in and they may give me a new panel as a good will gesture.
Hi, at Ikea Birstall where the returns bit is there are bins on the wall, I just helped myself. No questions asked.
If you ever need some chipboard etc for a home project, they always have a ton of it free in the car park. I needed some white melamine MDF for carpenter to make some similar cupboards to where I'd pulled out an old built in fridge & freezer. Saved me a few quid over buying it new.

I asked in store, a member of store staff popped into a storeroom and came back 2 minutes later with the exact part I needed.
Yep same in Milton Keynes, they have a rack of bins near customer services that you can just grab the piece you need from - can be handy if you are in the area
couple of years back got a pair of sliding drawer runners instore no problem at all.

I bought a lamp with big screw missing, was told they didn't give/sell the screw separately, so went back to store, opened the box for same lamp and grabbed it. Two can tango, Ikea!

That doesnt even make sense!
We have that dreadful sliding door dishwasher kit and in 2 years we have broken 2 of them , they are rubbish iam considering ripping out the build in dishwasher and just fit a standard dishwasher. That ikea sliding door kit is JUNK!
One of the cross bar wooden slats on my chest of MALM drawers broke ages ago.
I finally remembered to ask and was surprised when she just handed it over!
No questions or anything! It's great and then there's a wall of dowells, screws and fitting etc. Love IKEA!

I like the way you're thinking
I used to work for IKEA Contact Centre and can confirm this is the case. If you ring up and can give them the part number if it's like a screw or washer or hinge or something they will send you it for free. If you don't know the part number a lot of the staff are pretty helpful too, will probably help you out if you aren't a total ass about it.

That's what Chiptivo was alluding to, nobody believes him of course, but he amused himself. (_;)

And Quids Johnny Cash song reference

Incidentally, the tubs of spare screws etc are in the Lakeside Thurrock branch too.

It makes perfect sense to those of us under 40, or at least anyone who has been using the internet since the dial-up days.

So you think he actually did this then? Quote - 'I selected all the parts from the online form, sides, top bottom, slats, bolts, nuts and frame.
