Corian foldup stovetop cover has come loose from screw inserts

We have a Fleetwood Pace Arrow Vision, Mdl 36B. When not in use, the stovetop is covered by a Corian fold-up cover that matches the rest of the kitchen counter top. The fold up cover is in two pieces, joined by a long hinge. The front part of the cover has come apart from the screws on the hinge that are designed to fit in the holes located on the edge of the Corian front cover piece. The screws are wider at the ends in order to fit securely into the edge of the Corian front cover but perhaps, due to the age of the cover, the holes are become a bit worn and are now perhaps a bit larger than the ends of the screws that fit into them. Each time we attempt to fold up the cover towards the back wall of the stove, in order to turn on a burner, this front cover piece comes apart from the hinge. Any suggestions on what we can do to fix the problem? Thanks.

Sounds like a job for J-B Weld to me.

Check with a local counter-top supplier. I am sure they will have a glue to fill the holes. They glue these things together all the time when they install. Then redrill the holes.

The other option is find a slightly larger screw for the job. One rear mount screw was loose on my cover and I found a screw to fit in snugly.

I'm still not sure why I keep the fold down cover on my stove top. If they aren't handled properly.. something bends or.. is just more inconvenient than not. I'm ready to trash mine.. or at least put in storage in case I decide to move to a different rig.

Get a few wooden or plastic golf tees. Put some super glue or epoxy in the enlarged holes and then tap the pointed end of the tees into the holes. Once the glue sets cut the tees off flush with the counter top. Drill some pilot holes and reinsert the screws
