These days there are some really cheap refrigerator plastic parts. The things in the doors break and fall out. The bottom shelf plastic falls apart. I looked for replacements and they run close to $100! So I developed my own fixes for them. To start with the door shelf holders can be fixed with a pencil and lots of glue! The pencil is covered in E6000 or similar glue and inserted under the lip.
This is a close up of the pencil that reinforces the shelf front.
The bottom plastic surrounds a piece of glass. The plastic breaks away and leaves the glass loose. A nine inch long piece of 1/2 inch plastic water pipe works perfectly. No glue is needed, but you can add some if you want.
Don't forget to fix the handle. That breaks off rather quickly. I used a metal strap, some screws and lots of glue.
