    Almost every kitchen cupboard door we have has fallen off at least once !
    I pack the fixing holes out with paper and no more nails and then they come un attached on the cabinet side.
    I even went to the bother of replacing the hinges like for like and the same happens.
    They are only lasting a few weeks at a time.
    The kitchen is about 10 years old and was here when we moved in.
    Do i just rip the lot out and start again ?
    This is really starting to wear me down !

    The fixing holes on the carcasses?
    or on the door.
    Could you fill the holes in with wood filler (not glue doh) and then fix maybe slightly larger screws.

    Thanks for the link, I went on and at the current prices it will cost me £282.12 for the 12 doors and the corresponding carcass.
    They are certainly the tool for the job but i will shop around to see if i can find a better price.
    At least it gives me the ability to solve another nagging problem.
    Cheers :)

    Fill all screw holes with car body filler and then refit hinges.
