Panel falling off on 179

Has anyone had the panel below the 179 fridge that hides the wires, fall off? Mine came loose a few times. It would stay tight for a few trips and then the 2 screws would almost fall out. Any idea on how to solve this problem

There are three ways to fix this. You can use larger screws (easiest way). You can put Gorilla Glue in the holes before inserting the old screws ( be careful to wipe up any spill out so you don't glue the panel also). The third and hardest way is to plug the current holes, drill new correct diameter holes, and re-insert the old screws. What many furniture repairers do is stick a wooden toothpick in the hole, break it off flush, and then use the original screws.
