Repair tape

This morning the bottom door shelf of my fridge collapsed when I put the milk carton back in it. When I checked the bump on the door that sticks out had broken off…! I looked at the broken piece. It was about a centimeter by three centimeters and stuck out by about half a centimetre, but it wasn’t solid. It was only about half a millimeter thick and it looks like the whole inside door panel is just vaccuum formed!

Wnhat to do? I tried an epoxy glue but it wasn’t holding it. I put the shelf back in place but you could see the crack where it was pulling away. I’m NOT going to buy a new fridge (shades of my broken door catch). So I went out and bought some transparent repair tape. It’s not pretty, I can’t get the tape very flat, but it’s holding, for now.

  1. I’m a big fan of hot melt glue, pretty versatile and you can purchase cheap guns. I fixed my garbage bin lid when it cracked about 9 months ago and it’s still holding up! It gets rough treatment when the truck picks it up. Should work in your fridge.
