Cabinet Door Always Popping Open

I used blue tac to hold it closed but there must be a better way. I've attached a picture of the hinge.

You need a new hinge. Not uncommon. Just replaced one myself. Spring is most likely broken or ready to break.

I use blue tac all the time. It's that semi sticky putty used to temporarily hold notes or light things to surfaces. There are several brands with different names.

You can get those hinges at most any builders supply store. Take old one as there are many different sizes.

Blue tac is great. It doesn't damage surface area.

I got a lesson learned on offset and resolved the issue in 10 minutes. Thanks for the help!
