Residential fridge broke loose.

My fridge broke loose from its screws under the floor. Wood screws broke. Has anybody experienced this. What was the fix aside from putting new screws in it?

had a bracket on top that was glued to the bridge and screwed to the wall above the opening. The glue let loose and the fridge damaged the side wall. I donít think it was attached at all on the bottom but apparently there was one screw through the fridge frame
Into the floor. Of the two front bottom adjuster feet, only one was slightly in any wood. The other had nothing under it at all.

I repositioned the fridge, put the single screw back into the floor, and am adding wood strips (still need to stain) under the adjustable feet. I then used two different types of JB Weld to reattach the bracket to the top of the fridge. Click image for larger version

Thank you for your very informative reply. My fridge is a Frigidaire Gallery. After reading your post, I discovered a similar bracket on top that is screwed on to a wood bar with 4 small screws. ALL missing.

Are the holes there and the screws came out, or screws were never there? If they vibrates out, I put some glue in the holes (nothing that will last a lifetime-they may need to be removed at some point ) and then put them back in.

The 4 screws on the top bracket were once there but worked their way out. I replaced the with #14 hex head wood screws. The bottom screws in the roller brackets broke with half still in the wood. Haven't replaced those yet.
