Vinyl Ceiling Falling Down

Hello,
About an inch of my vinyl ceiling material is falling down across my entire LR ceiling. I don't believe there is any water damage to the ceiling panels, the foam backing has just come off the back side of the vinyl. I assume there is a way to glue this vinyl back up without staining the vinyl. Could someone tell me what type of glue to use, and how I go about doing the project?

Thanks!

I had this on a brand new Damon Tuscany ( that was the least of my problems). The entire panel was replaced by the dealer. Dealer said it was faulty material that had separated from the backing.

Perhaps some sort of spray on adhesive would be best to use.

Is the problem area at a seam line or more like a bubble?

It is were the ceiling meets the wall edge, not a bubble.

Thanks for the spray adhesive idea!

Usually it is the foam that is failing. If the foam has crumbled, you will have to clean out the foam or the glue will not stick.

Try stretching it back in place with a butter knife and use a paper stapler opened up. I did mine, it was on the cross pieces (side to side) used the knife to push material into molding and stapled fast. Holding up a year later.
