I have a formica drawer. The front piece has come off - the screws holding it on will not stay in the hole - the hole is stripped.

What kind of glue can I use to keep the front piece on?

Will elmers glue work ?

if the core of the drwer is wood surounded by formica simply take some wood glue and a wooden dowel spread some wood glue on the dowell and in the hole push the dowell into the whole let it dry overnight then drill a small pilot hole in the dowel then screw it back on if it is solid formica you can use the same method but the glue you use would have to be diffrent i'm not sure what works good (maybe quicktight). good luck

Just replace the screws with larger ones. Not longer but larger in diameter. #10 or #12 screws of the same length should work.

You can also try a small nut and bolt that goes entirely through the drawer front. Use the same type head as the screw........Mark Hammond
