Default Freezer Liner Repair
Model Number: RT18BKXKQ03   Brand: Roper   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


One of my tenants placed a hot pan in the freezer. It melted the plastic liner, thereby exposing the styrofoam insulation underneath. How can I patch this. If epoxy or tape is suggested, please be specific. Most epoxies I've looked at don't appear as though they would stick to that type of plastic, and the tape I've seen appears very thin and the hot pan created a very bumpy surface. Please see attached photo. Thank-you very much!

Thank-you for the quick response! I'm not concerned with appearance, just functionality. I'm worried if I don't protect the exposed styrofoam, there will be problems. Isn't there some type of epoxy, or something I can cover the holes with and then spray paint that with white "plastic" paint?

I would clean the surface and coat the holes with white Silicone (RTV) cement.

Default Cement?

Are you sure it's called "cement", or is it white RTV silicone rubber that gets hard like cement when it cures? I searched using the word cement and didn't get much. Dow has many RTV silicone rubbers. Is there one in particular that I can buy at Lowe's or Home Depot? Thanks!

They sell it at Wall Mart, GE silicone sealant for bathrooms, a superior sticking stuff that they use to seal the glass on aquariums, good stuff.
