Need glue Recommendation Refrigerator Bottom Crisper Drawer

I have a refrigerator clear bottom drawer that is badly cracked.
I am inclined to use a good quality clear packing tape to just go over the whole mess. But first thought I'd ask for any glue options that really work & look nice.

I've never had luck gluing clear plastic.
When using superglue, in the past on similar repairs, I end up with smears & runs or a foggy appearance.

Any advice? Thanks.

Well. Any glue is going to make a mess if it is not neat and confined to the crack or? Superglue makes a new superglue that glues ALL types of plastic now, including the 2 poly plastics that previously were not glueable/epoxiable.

You might want to try Model Airplane/Car/RR glue..or your Mr's Nail Repair glue. Designed for acrylic/plastic materials.

I just repaired the side rails on my crisper drawer. I have a special solvent used in office machine repair and it worked for several months until someone leaned on it "again", so many pieces I wanted a better solution. Plus it was a foggy repair, just in an area that was not visable. My final fix was a piece of aluminum angle and clear silicone on both rails.

In your case, if the break is where you can cover it with a sheet of opaque plastic (opaque so you don't see the glue) and glue it in place with the silicone, it will hold very well. Kind of depends upon where it is broken.

My son had a similar problem. The Lowes store nearby brings the old appliances back to the store from the customer's house. They put them in a trailer in back of the store for recycling.
I kept an eye on this trailer and got replacement shelves and drawers for free.


p.s. ask permission first.
