Refrigerator falling out

Okay glad I caught this in time. My wife yells the refrigerator is falling out as we were existing the interstate. If not for the bungee cords it may have.

Not sure if it left the factory this way but its not fastened at the top. Its leaning in at the top too as if the legs in the back are not adjusted right.

Looks like four small screws at the bottom are all thats securing it. Looks like I'm going to have to remove it to see whats up with it leaning in towards back.

Check your everyone. Thank goodness for the bungee cords.

Will check ours asap. I swapped bungee cord for a kayak strap, no give in it, which hopefully holds it better.

I don't think we're supposed to screw into the fridge. So I think that brace is just meant to hold it in place. A residential fridge sits on the floor/deck, unlike a gas absorption fridge which is built in.

What fridge do you have? I can ask what is supposed to be there.

Not sure how that L bracket is supposed to keep it from tilting back and forth banging against wall or something. It wasn't like that when I bought it because I checked it. This thing was loose.... very loose. I assure you going down the road like it is can't be good for the compressor.

I'll figure it out. I slid it out and noticed double sided tape holding where apparently the L brackets were attached. The fridge dropped down a little somehow and pulled it loose.

I'll remove that plastic cover disconnect wires and figure out better top mount. The way it is aint gonna get it.

Our looks like it has 3m double sided tape on the bracket where it touches the fridge, screwed to the wood only. Ours is not shaky, yet. Lol. I think the road is the main culprit in most of my items unscrewing themselves. I used blue loctite on all the machine screws and a dab of interior construction glue on all wood screws i put back in.

Frigidaire gallary 3 door. I see what they're trying to accomplish with this set up, however it failed on mine. Thanks, just passing it along.

My Frigidaire looks pretty good. Attached are a couple of pictures of both brackets. I'm not sure what the adhesive is called connecting the bracket to the fridge.Click image for larger version

More than likely 3M VHB tape.
