Hi there,
Is the situation such that the screws have come out of the screw holes and now the holes are too big to just screw things back together?

If this is the case, that is fairly common and not difficult to fix.

You will need: wooden toothpicks or skewers, wood glue, some type of clippers like a wire cutter or strong toe nail clippers, a standard emery board (nail file) or sandpaper.

1-cut several toothpick to be about Ĺ inch long.
2-coat with glue
3-pack tightly in the hole
4-let dry
5-clip off the ends as close as possible to the surface
6-sand smooth with the nail file.

Now you can re-screw the hinge into this to re-attach the door.

Great idea!

And use screws that are one size larger (not longer). This is also a good time to learn how to make the adjustments on the hinges to get them properly aligned, so that the doors close properly and securely.

So the toothpick and wood glue works great for the screw holes as was suggested. I'm going to assume the hinge did not fall apart. is it possible the cabinet was not fully latched closed or was not aligned and came open when you were traveling?

Hard to tell from the picture... Did the plastic anchors in the door come out with the screws? I got tired of dealing with them constantly coming loose so I removed the anchors and epoxied them back in. Rock solid now.

Glad to hear that worked.
We also use a wire tie on the two handles to keep the doors secure during travel.
