    [0032] FIG. 3 is a perspective view showing a storage basket and a support frame of the refrigerator of FIG 1, FIG. 4 is a cross-sectional view showing a storage basket and a support frame of the refrigerator of FIG. 1, FIG. 5 is a view showing coupling relationship between a sliding door and a support frame of the refrigerator of FIG. 1, and FIG. 6 is an exploded view showing a rail unit of the refrigerator of FIG. 1.

    [0033] Referring to FIGS. 1 to 6, the storage basket 200 of the refrigerator in accordance with an embodiment of the present disclosure may have a storage space 210 that may store food. An upper surface of the storage basket 200 may be opened, and food may be put in and taken out of the storage space 210 through the opened upper portion. In addition, the storage basket 200 has a front wall 220, a rear wall 230, both sidewalls 250a and 250b, and a bottom wall 240.

    [0034] In particular, as shown in FIG. 4, the both sidewalls 250a and 250b of the storage basket 200 include a first wall 260 on a lower portion, a second wall 270 that protrudes outwardly from the first wall 260, and a coupling wall 280 that connects the first wall 260 and the second wall 270 and is approximately horizontally formed. Here, a vertical length L1 of the first wall 260 is formed to be smaller than a vertical length L2 of the second wall 270. Rail units 310 and 320 of the support frame 300 may be disposed between the first wall 260 and the inner case 20. The lengths of the first wall 260 and the coupling wall 280 have a predetermined length to accommodate the support frame 300 to allow the storage basket 200 to be drawn into and out of the freezing chamber 200. In other words, based on the size of the support frame 300, the lengths the first wall 260 and the coupling wall 280 are changed accordingly to accommodate the support frame 300. The length of second wall may be proportionally changed based on the changes in the length of the first wall 260.

    [0035] By the above-described structure, the storage basket 200 of the refrigerator in accordance with an embodiment of the present disclosure has a wider storage space 210 than the conventional storage basket having a flat sidewall.

    [0036] The storage basket 200 may be supported by the support frame 300 in such a manner that a coupling wall 280 formed between the first wall 260 and the second wall 270 is placed on a storage basket support surface 451 of the support frame 300.

    [0037] Here, a coupling protrusion 281 that protrudes downward may be formed in the coupling wall 280 of the storage basket 200, and a coupling hole 452 to which the coupling protrusion 281 is inserted may be formed in the support frame 300. Accordingly, the coupling protrusion 281 may be inserted into the coupling hole 452, so that the storage basket 200 may be fixed to the support frame 300.

    [0038] In an upper portion of the storage basket 200, the roller support surface 290 through which the first roller 401 of the auxiliary basket 400 is supported, a roller support guide 295 that guides the movement of the first roller 401, the front protrusion 291 that protrudes upward from the front portion of the roller support surface 290, the rear protrusion 293 that protrudes upward from the rear portion of the roller support surface 290, the auxiliary protrusion 292 that protrudes upward between the front protrusion 291 and the rear protrusion 293 of the roller support surface 290, and a second roller 294 that is coupled with a rear surface of the auxiliary basket 400 so as to perform a rolling motion.

    [0039] The front protrusion 291 acts as a front stopper that limits a forward relative position of the auxiliary basket 400 with respect to the storage basket 200, and the rear protrusion 293 acts as a rear stopper that limits a rearward relative position of the auxiliary basket 400 with respect to the storage basket 200. Accordingly, each of the front protrusion 291 and the rear protrusion 293 is preferably formed to have a predetermined height so that the first roller 401 is not moved over the front protrusion 291 and the rear protrusion 293.

    [0040] The front protrusion 291 may pressurize the first roller 401 so that the storage basket 200 is drawn in together with the auxiliary basket 400 in conjunction with the auxiliary basket 400.

    [0041] The auxiliary protrusion 292 is formed so as to be close to the front protrusion 291 between the front protrusion 291 and the rear protrusion 293. A roller housing unit 296 in which the first roller 401 is housed may be formed between the front protrusion 291 and the auxiliary protrusion 292, and the auxiliary basket 400 may not be relatively moved to the storage basket 200 when force is not directly applied to the auxiliary basket 400 in a state in which the first roller 401 is housed in the roller housing unit 296.

    [0042] Accordingly, when the storage basket 200 is drawn out while the first roller 401 is housed in the roller housing unit 296, the auxiliary protrusion 292 may pressurize the first roller 401, and the auxiliary basket 400 may be drawn out together with the storage basket 200.

    [0043] As described above, when the storage basket 200 is drawn in while the first roller 401 is housed in the roller housing unit 296, the front protrusion 291 may pressurize the first roller 401, and the auxiliary basket 400 may be drawn in together with the storage basket 200.

    [0044] The auxiliary protrusion 292 may be formed to have a slightly lower height than the front protrusion 291 and the rear protrusion 293 so that the first roller 401 may be moved over the auxiliary protrusion 292.

    [0045] Accordingly, when the auxiliary basket 400 is drawn in by directly applying force to the auxiliary basket 400 in a state in which the first roller 401 is housed in the roller housing unit 296, the first roller 401 may be moved over the auxiliary protrusion 292, and only the auxiliary basket 400 may be drawn in while the storage basket 200 is not moved.

    [0046] The support frame 300 includes left and right rail units 310 and 320 that are respectively coupled to the inner case 20, a rear reinforcing frame 330 that connects a rear portion of the left rail unit 310 and a rear portion of the right rail unit 320, and a front reinforcing frame 340 that connects a front portion of the left rail unit 310 and a front portion of the right rail unit 320.

    [0047] The rear and front reinforcing frames 330 and 340 may prevent distortion of the left and right rail units 310 and 320.

    [0048] As shown in FIG. 6, each of the left and right rail units 310 and 320 (only left rail unit 310 is shown) may include a first cover rail 410 that is fixedly coupled to the inner case 20, a first sliding rail 420 that is fixedly coupled to the first cover rail 410, a second sliding rail 430 that is movably coupled to the first sliding rail 420, a third sliding rail 440 that is movably coupled to the second sliding rail 430, a second cover rail 450 that is fixedly coupled to the third sliding rail 440, the sliding door 82, and the storage basket 200, a first sliding assisting member 460 that is disposed between the first sliding rail 420 and the second sliding rail 430 and has a ball member 461, and a second sliding assisting member 470 that is disposed between the second sliding rail 430 and the third sliding rail 440 and has a ball member 471.

    [0049] A rack gear 411 may be formed in the first cover rail 410, and a pinion gear 481 that is engaged with the rack gear 411 may be coupled to the third sliding rail 440. The pinion gear 481 may be coupled to a connection bar 480 that is rotatably coupled to a connection bar receiving part 441 of the third sliding rail 440.

    [0050] The above-described rear and front reinforcing frames 330 and 340 may be coupled to the second cover rail 450 to which the sliding door 82 and the storage basket 200 are coupled.

    [0051] In addition, the above-described coupling hole 452 and storage basket support surface 451 may also be formed in the second cover rail 450.

    [0052] The refrigerator in accordance with an embodiment of the present disclosure may further include a coupling bracket 500 that enables the sliding door 82 and the support frame 300 to be coupled with each other.

    [0053] The coupling bracket 500 may include a first coupling unit 520 coupled with a rear surface 83 of the sliding door 82, second coupling units 510a and 510b coupled with the second cover rail 450 of the support frame 300, and a reinforcing unit 530 that connects the first coupling unit 520 and the second coupling units 510a and 510b to reinforce rigidity of the coupling bracket 500.

    [0054] The reinforcing unit 530 may be provided to have a plate shape that is approximately perpendicularly disposed, and a longitudinal length L3 of the reinforcing unit 530 may be increased toward a lower portion thereof.

    [0055] By this structure, the support frame 300 coupled to a lower portion of the sliding door 82 may be prevented from being spread out from the sliding door 82 or fallen behind the sliding door 82, and may be firmly coupled to the sliding door 82.

    [0056] As described above, in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure, the lower wall in which the support frame is disposed among the sidewalls of the storage basket protrudes inward, and the upper wall in which the support frame is not disposed protrudes outward, and therefore an inner storage space of the storage basket may be expanded.

    [0057] In addition, the coupling bracket that enables the sliding door and the support frame to be coupled with each other includes the first coupling unit that is coupled with the sliding door, the second coupling unit that is coupled with the support frame, and the reinforcing unit that connects the first coupling unit and the second coupling unit, and therefore a coupling force between the sliding door and the support frame may be strengthened.

    [0058] In addition, the front protrusion, the rear protrusion, and the auxiliary protrusion are provided in the storage basket, and therefore the auxiliary basket may be moved in conjunction with the movement of the storage basket.

    [0059] Although a few embodiments of the present disclosure have been shown and described, it would be appreciated by those skilled in the art that changes may be made in these embodiments without departing from the scope of which is defined in the claims.
