Bent hinge

I have a top bent hinge that will not let my cabinet stay closed (please see pictures below). Should I replace it or can it be repaired?

Not worth fixing. Buy a new one.

Take hinge off and put on a hard flat surface and hammer straight. You could google hinges and try to find a replacement.

I would give straightening it a shot first. If you have a good bench vise, open it so that both ends are supported on the jaws with the crowned part of the pin up, lay a block of wood on it so you don't mar the surface, and give it a rap or two with a hammer. Or you could do the same thing with a couple of blocks on a bench. You might get it on just a flat surface, but I'd prefer to for it to be able to spring just past center and come back for something like that.
