Kitchen cabinet door had fallen off and i have tried to repair but is still lose and now wonky

A few weeks ago our kitchen cabinet door fell off and took part of the cabinet with it causing a hole. I have filled the hole with wood filler and tried reattaching the door, this hasn’t worked. The door is still lose and is now wonky and has dropped. Is there anything anyone can recommend to help me?

If you looking to repair it rather than replace it you could give (repair care wood filler) it’s a two part filler that goes off solid and is available in most builders merchants

For this go to screwfix or tool station to have hinge repair plate for kitchens door
if the hole in the kitchen cabinet is to big please change the hole for the hings door so you can have new hole made in the cabinet door so the cabinet will have new hole for your hings
