Welcome to the forums.

Is the blue arrow the crack or both arrows ?
Did this happen by itself.... stress crack ?

Both arrows have cracks. How can I repair these? It just happen all of a sudden. I had to defrost my fridge because ice was building up by the fan area. My mom noticed it this morning and just told me about it. I'd like to find a DIY cheapest way to repair this.

To make a repair... your freezer needs to be room temperature.

Normally with a crack you drill a hole in the plastic at each end with a small drill bit. Something small like 1/8". Just drill thru the plastic...... carefully. Don't go wild with the drill. You just want to penetrate the plastic to stop the crack from spreading.

Sand the area over the crack so that is slightly roughed up.

Wipe that area with rubbing alcohol or I use lighter fluid.

You will need white silicone or goop and a roll of white tape. It's not critical what kind of tape you use. I use regular liner tape but 3/4" white or 1" plastic vinyl tape works fine too.

Apply a bead of silicone over the crack, being sure to get in the drilled holes, smooth the bead out with finger. Apply white tape over the silicone and smooth out over the silicone.

With a little practice you won't even see the repairs.
