Question cupboard hinges broken off of door

2011 215 Fun Finder, dealer said discontinued doors could cost up to $600 to order 3 new ones. Not going to do that. Does anyone know of a place to order camper doors or a good way to repair the two that are broken.

If they are wood, take a hinge and see why its loose, or what is. If screws just came out and hinge turned loose, try removing an existing one to get several that size, and several of the next size up, thickness that is, to handle any that may have stripped out.
If the wood itself is damaged beyond a little paint and a few screws, you might take one by a cabinet shop in the area for an estimate to repair/remake one/2/3,
even with new or repaired, they will have to be reinstalled, so ya might snap a pic of factory alignment/connections at hinges.

If the screw holes will no longer secure the screw, put a small piece of wood in the hole (toothpick work great) and re-insert the original screw that will now hold tight.

Old woodworkers trick!

You can drill out the old hole and glue in a short piece of dowel that will hold new threads Or you can use Durham’s water putty, let it dry thoroughly, sand and it will hold new threads.

Tightly pack the old screw holes with Mohawk Epoxy Putty Stick - available on Amazon for about $12. Then drill new pilot holes and reattach the hinges. The stuff works great.

Smile cupboard hinges broken off of door

Thanks for the the great ideas. We were able to find a local retired 92 year old cabinet worker to do the repairs. He was going to router out a section and replace it with real wood instead of composite and then replace the hinges. Going to do all three for $150.
Happy
Patty
