    You can try a two part epoxy but it may not work because the type of plastic used for temperature changes. If you can't repair them you may be able to buy replacements.

    Punch in your model number.

    Doubt it would hold up to daily wear and tear, I would focus on finding replacements..... I would talk to the store where you brought it, cause sometimes they haul frigs to the dump when someone buys a new one. All those frigs wind up at the dump in a recycling area here, and you could talk to the dump manager to see if you could score one or two.

    Since you need it to work in different temperatures, I'd try Shoe Goo. Be careful not to block the tracks!

    The plastic is worn out and brittle, time to replace. Check with an appliance store, Habitat for Humanity store or a local appliance repairman, they sometimes have just what you want.

    I've had really good luck with E6000 on all different types of plastic. You might try that.

    Hi, my replacement bins would have cost $200 each. They were the type that the front panel slides into channels on the bin itself. I drilled a hole through the side and the front and slipped a $ store cable tie through it. It held really well. I placed it so it would be inconspicuous. I'm not sure if that would work in your case, but I saved a lot of money.

      I am glad you saved $200.00...... have not inquired on the replacement yet. Thanks for the info
