You need epoxy that works at that temp. You can't use superglue to attach wood to plastic. It won't work.

In my case, since I had already figured out that there were no refrigerant lines in the side wall of the fridge, I attached a 1/4" strip of plywood with 3/4" SS screws to the plastic. Then just put some 1" SS screws in the plywood and hung the manifold from them. Its been there for three years, no issues.

Here's a superglue product that works well for wood to plastic interfaces.
