    Default Fridge Drawer Repair

    Don't know if anybody else has this problem but this simple repair saved me
    about $70 for new fridge drawers. These cheap plastic drawer glides
    (Frigidaire) broke soon after purchase and I was able to repair using 1\16"
    x 1\2" Aluminum Angle stock and a pop rivet gun. I did this repair about a
    year ago and it has worked flawlessly since.

    Great idea! It's a royal pain when something like that goes wrong,
    glad you were able to figure out an inexpensive solution.

    My tip to you - lube all your door gaskets with petroleum jelly twice
    a year to keep them from getting brittle and cracking. Might as well
    take care of them because they're expensive to replace.

    Petroleum jelly (Vaselene) will slowly dissolve many plastics... apply
    a thin coat of silicone grease instead... or: http://www.armorall.com/
