    Question 1983 GE TBF22DCC Refrigerator bottom shelf disintergrated. Any advice on rebuild?

    Hello all, this is my first post. I have a GE TBF22DCC refrigerator circa 1983 that still works good. However the plastic bottom shelf that housed the three crisper drawers disintergrated awhile ago and me just putting a sheet of plexiglass over it was not stable and eventually broke. I am looking for a more permanent solution. Does anyone have experience constructing a shelf that is stable and keep the utility of the bottom crisper drawers sliding in and out? I did find parts for the fridge online but they're out of stock and I am dubious if they are correct (they don't look like that to me). Does anyone know of a resource online that can help me with this issue?

    Hi,

    I have never tried to mend a cover like that before.

    If the rest of the refrigerator is in good shape it may be best to invest some money into new covers.

    2 show the same and 1 is different....but now they all sub to the same cover.

    I saw a video shoing a product called ...Sugra, I think being used for some repairs. I know nothing about it.

    Thanks for the help. I did find those containers on another repair site- at $130 per lid putting it at $400 almost, even though the fridge did not have lids and one flat surface with guides for the crisper shelves. But I couldn't find that option either. Oh well. Thanks anyway. Maybe I should contact Sears or GE.

    If you are going to check GE, do it soon as they have been sold and bought....and what often happens is older parts are thrown out and made NLA to make room for new model ones.
