Crack in Freezer Lining

I have a crack in the freezer wall of a Kenmore side by side. Is there a product (glue or caulk or something like that) that can be used to repair the crack and that will withstand the temperature?

    The model number is Kenmore 106.8580380. Do you know where I can get the patch kits? We are using the unit at a cabin, so if the fix isn't pretty, it's okay. It is a used unit for me, so I don't have any of the original owner's manuals, etc. (By the way, I wasn't the one who gave you a poor rating)

    Thanks for the information. I'll order one.

    I checked online at Sears.com for part no. 282397 and also called the 800 number. They don't have that part number and the 800 operator could not find any type of epoxy repair kit listed. Any other ideas?

Bpat, Im guessing that your model number begins with 106, If so it's built by Whirlpool. Look at your owners manual and see if it mentions a warranty on the liner. Some models carried a 10 year warranty against cracking. If not, there are some kits available out there to patch cracks but it's not the greatest looking deal. Catriver...post back

I have a leak from the input gasket my kenmore 400 washer, which is plastic and has cracked, can I repair it myself?


yes you can lock tight glue for rubber and plastic.(tube glue not superglue it's like a gel) thin amount of glue locks it in place or a blob of glue turns into a rubber seal. also stops cracking from same crack. used it myself works great.

Unfortunately this is usually caused by a leak and the drywall is wet , and or the tub is sinking due to water damage to floor. If the drywall is solid then use a utility knife to remove old caulk, then after area is clean apply silicone caulk around the tub. apply neatly but with plenty enough to fill the void. I then spray a dish soap an water mixture on the calk then remove excess by pressing thumb down and sliding it long caulking. This presses it into the gap and also removes excess, which leaves you a neatly caulked tub.

  1. 1

    Cut the tip off the tube of caulk, and load the fresh tube into the caulking gun. Puncture the seal inside the tip of the tube using a nail, stiff wire or the special puncturing tool built onto many caulk guns.

  2. 2

    Insert backer rod into large openings. These foam strips are available in sizes ranging from 3/8 inch to over 1 inch, and should be perfect for most bathroom filler needs. For larger holes, consider using a foam spray filler, but be careful as the foam expands a great deal and could overflow onto your work area if too much is used.

  3. 3

    Caulk the joints as you normally would. For large cracks, don't force your caulking into the crevice, but simply form a bead over the crack. Use multiple beads and a caulking tool or piece of scrap lumber to shape the caulk and remove excess.

  4. 4

    Allow the caulk to dry for 4 to 6 hours. Using the tip of your utility knife, check that the caulk adhered to all edges and formed a seal. For really large cracks, it may be necessary to repeat the process.

  5. 5

    When caulking open cracks, place a bead along each edge of the crack. Allow the caulk to set for 5 minutes, and apply a third bead over the first two. Use the damp sponge to shape and remove excess caulk.

No, very rarely internal shelves can be moved between generations. Unfortunately all you can do is an improvisation to keep them in place: you need to make the channel walls higher by gluing some small pieces of thick plastic on them using a powerful adhesive - not superglue, something like Loctite Sumo Glue.

Freezer on the bootom type refridgerator


Hello. I am not aware of any recall. That said, you must repair these cracks to prevent mold and bacteria from taking over. Do this:

1. Go to any hardware store and get a couple of tubes of silicon caulk [white or clear] and a caulk gun.
2. Remove all of the food from the fridge and store it elsewhere for 3 days.
3. leave the fridge door opened and let it warm up to room temp. before you caulk the cracks.
4. Once warm, clean the area with soapy water, rinse and dry and then go over it with rubbing alcohol.
5. Caulk it and leave the door opened for 48 hours while the caulk cures and off-gases.

Subzero bottom freezer drawer is freezing shut.


Silicone bath/shower sealant should work, the one that smells like vinegar. Also known as RTV.

 

Just make sure the area is dry, clean and free of old caulk.

It'll need to be at room temperature to set properly for a few hours.

 

I have used this sealant on things before that went as low as

-50C. Preperation is the key though.

Frig liner is cracking


I have the same problem on my 3 year old Kenmore Refrigerator. I cleaned out the refrigerator and noticed the cracks. I don't know how long they've been there. I called the service guy out and he said it's a known problem. He said the plastic wasn't poured right into the mold. He told the only solution is a silicon type caulking or a patch. The patch involved cutting pieces of liner from a sheet and basically glueing them over the cracks. BOTH SOLUTIONS are unacceptable. I am beginning the process of complaining (lot of good it will do). If this is a known defect, SEARS should stand by their product and make it good.
