Cracks in refrigerator lining

The liner in my 40-yo Dometic is just starting to show a few cracks. Don't want to replace the old girl, is there some sort of modern goop that will stabilize the cracks? Or is there another easy fix?

Yes there is a product that will work. I used these products on my home fridge with very good results.
Whirlpool makes a repair kit for fridge liners. P/N 482395 for cracks. It's actually a special tape with adhesive on it. Then they sell an electrical grade silicone sealant P/N 482338 for holes.
To use the tape for the repair you must drill a small hole at each end of the crack so it does not travel any further then apply the tape.
I used it a few years ago, both products part numbers I mentioned are bright white. You could check for other shades or colors available for what you need.
I bought the items at FSB Appliance Care, 2801 Airwest Blvd., Plainfield, IN 46168

This stuff was a little pricey for what you get but, it does work on fridge liners.

Maybe Dometic has similar products for repairs.

Indy, that is a beautiful repair.

Where did you get the G-Fleax? and what did you use to bridge the hole?

I used some fiberglass cloth as an added filler and for structural strength.
I know this may sound funny but I used the duct tape to form the mold shape.

then mix the goop and away we go.

hope all go'es well
Indy

What kind of problems might happen if the cracks are not patched?
Thanks
