recommend glue for plastic part in fridge
« on: October 16, 2018, 09:13:51 AM »
the tab broke off the part that holds the shelf in place, not having the best of luck finding the part so I thought I would see if there is a glue that would work.

I don't know if a 2 part epoxy would do it. There may be allot of weight on the shelf for the epoxy to hold. If it doesn't work, I would try drilling out the spot where the piece was, tap it for a 1/4"-20 or 5/16"-18 thread and install a bolt with the head cut off. Maybe you could put a small 1/2 nut on the backside.

The CG we will be staying at starting this Sunday has a huge dumpster where people sometimes get rid of their old fridges. I'll keep an eye out.

I thought about adding a bolt or screw, the part fits flush to the fridge wall, also it is too thin to tap and add a bolt. I have zip tie holding the shelf up, which I might leave in place to help aid in keeping the weight off the shelf.
Asked DW where she tried to find the part- thought it was the Frigidaire site, I will see what i can find too.
its a Frigidaire  Model FGHC2331PFAA

That part doesn't seem to exist in the Frigidaire model number you provided for anything to do with the shelves. 2 things. Are you sure it's for a shelf, and are you sure of the fridge model number?

CRISPER cover support. Nice job Rene.

I think all the shelves use the same set up.

In an emergency you can either tie it to the shelf above or put a forked limb (Small) under it to the lower surface.
As a FIX, I use JB Weld a lot.  Seems to hold up well in a cold environment.

They don't. I think that's what was making it so hard to find the part.

Rene- thanks for the website, the part I have has one prong on it. I did look around and see another one that might work. I will give them a call and see what they have. Appreciate all the help
I made sure it was the correct model number and yes the part is for the crisper drawer/shelf, there are 2 that hold the rear of the shelf in place.

I know of no glue I'd trust there. But a bolt (some hae very thin heads) from the back and a "Speed Nut" (Spring thing) on the shelf side might work.

I  went to replace the Drip tray (I'm told it' called a defrost tray) ask my local sales and service dealer and they spent all summer not ordering one.. Finally went to General RV. I know folks like to bad mouth 'em but this rig came from General RV.. I stopped in 2 weeks ago on my way past going up to Standish (Nice park. at least for me though my standards are... Different)  and stopped in again on my way south 2 weeks later.. Part is now in place awaiting a new "DO Not Set Anything ON This Shelf" label  (I don't need the label but I'm hoping to pick up a new traveling companion some day....  (Have a good prospect by the way).  But now defrost water goes where I want it to go (OUT THE BACK).

If they are cheap, you might want to order a spare. You know if you have a spare, it will never break again. If you don't have a spare, it will happen again.   ;D :D ;)

I've used this on fridge parts and it's held up for years. Still going strong.

It will dry blue, but if you aren't staring at it all the time who cares?

I have had good luck glueing plastics with an adhesive called Bondic.
It cures using a supplied UV light
It hase held things attached that neither 2 part epoxy or CA glue would.

The shelves on the doors on our nocold kept falling off. I used Gorilla epoxy to keep them in place. Been holding pretty good for about 3 weeks now. I put a dab on each top corner and a bead across the bottom. That may work well on the broken piece.
