I have no idea how to fix this.

Do you have any good idea for this?

Hello Ybkim,

Unfortunately, once particleboard breaks out like that it is a tough fix. I have been able to repair breakouts with a sawdust and glue mixture but it was not in an area that was going to have stress on it, as a hinge area would.

The best way would be to replace the door. Hinge areas have a lot of stress put on them so the likely hood of it breaking again is highly likely.

The other idea I would toss out there would be to move the hinge over just enough to clear the breakout, predrill the holes, and install the hinge. This would give you a solid working area for the hinge to screw in too. I would suggest using forstner drill bits so that you have a flat bottom on the holes for the screws and the hole for the concealed hinge.

Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to help.
