Fixing a broken plastic Whirlpool refrigerator door

fixing a broken plastic nub off a refrigerator door

We had one of the plastic nubs to break off from our small Whirlpool refrigerator.

I didn't think super glue or epoxy would be strong enough, so I found a dull drill bit that was the right diameter and installed it far enough in so it sticks out like the old nub did.

The middle section of the door is no doubt filled with some kind of styrofoam, which is why I drilled a smaller pilot hole first to help get the bit positioned as straight as possible.

It works fine and feels like a long lasting solution.
