I found the same problem when I just brought our trailer to the house from storage ! I pieced it back together and glued it with Gorilla Glue. Hope this works. We're almost on the road so had to do something fast. Called Dometic. No help there. No repair kit for my model. They would sell me a new door. Our 2010 25 FB is all of 2.5 years old. This same failure occurred 10 years ago on our 1999 Safari 27. That time the door fell off while in storage and busted the oven door across the galley. Replaced both doors that time.
Seem like Dometic could improve on their cheesy plastic hinge hinge pin mounts.
