Question Hemnes chest - drawer fix?

After using my Hemnes chest for awhile, the bottoms of the drawers are all falling out at the back. There's only a little lip holding them in. Now that they are warped, I can't get them to stay back in place. There is no room in the groove to add additional wood pieces.

What kind of support can I add in the middle to get my drawer bottoms to stay in?

Re: Hemnes chest - drawer fix?

Welcome to IKEAFANS, cj.

The wooden drawer bodies in the Hemnes line are more stable and sturdy than other lines (Hopen, Malm, etc.), which use particle board instead. Was the bottom panel secure in the groove in the back?

It sounds like you might just have too much clothing in those drawers, and the bottoms can't support all of that weight. You can most likely pick up replacements at your local IKEA, in the returns department.

Re: Hemnes chest - drawer fix?

I have the same problem. Anyone know if it's possible to order another fiberboard that is the bottom of the drawer?

Or if there is a manual way to fix this?
