Smile I need help in a kitchen slider drawer slow close

I have a kitchen drawer which has metal sliders on below. They worked well to close but lately it did not close all the way. It used to close and then automatically close by itself shut (like those slow close) problem is I am not sure what type of sliders I need. I measured it to be about 21-22 from where the sliders is but not sure if any regular slow close ones would also work. It has like a piston like that makes the drawer close slowly. Do I need to buy 2 whole units including the mounting as well. I think the metal mounting that is in there has like a metal sort of thing that allows me to slide into the 2 metal thing/ holder all the way back to position it. what can I do? I attached some photos and images, videos yuou can see. I see in Lowes or Homedepot does not have that piston like thing. Do I need to worry about this?

I don't have permission to view the pictures. Drawer slides wear out and need to be replaced from time to time. The fancier they are the quicker they wear out. Sometimes a little dirt on slides can reek havoc. When they are new they come dripping with grease and when the counter people cut the sink and range holes it fills the slides with dust. One job I had to remove all the slides and wash them out with naphtha and re-grease them after the countertop people were done.

It sounds like you have soft close drawer slides which are sometimes temperamental even when new. You might try cleaning and re-greasing the slides and if that doesn't work you may need to replace them. You change out both the slides in the cabinet as well as the two pieces on the drawer unless you get the same make and model slide that you have.

I also can't view the images, but we had some issues with a couple of soft close slides when our kitchen cabinets were new last year. I discovered that the closing linkage at the rear of the slides where the piston/spring is had come disconnected somehow. I also had issues with the trash/recycle drawer slides not closing properly. This one was due to some mounting screws backing out and causing misalignment enough to bind the closing mechanism. I also lubricated the slides with a silicone spray. No issues since.

I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.
