Introdução

Due to the constant stress of the door of the refrigerator being opened and closed, as well as supporting lots of weight, the door shelves can eventually crack. In my case, the bar support for the shelf is gone. Anything placed on the shelf can easily fall because the shelf can no longer hold much weight. I will provide instructions on how to attach the two broken pieces together so that when anyone places food items on the shelf, nothing will fall off or break. This fix will be useful for individuals whose refrigerator shelf bar is broken and need a cost friendly repair without breaking the bank.
