Mirrors on Cupboards Falling Out

Bought a 2010 - 330 Georgetown last week and on closer inspection have found that the mirrors on the various cupboards are not very secure, one actually fell out. Has anyone else experiences this and if so how did you fix it. It looks like they have been put in with silicone around the sides.

Sounds like something else that I need to check on my new Georgetown. I did notice the silicone on the bedroom closet mirror so I assumed they were all pretty secure. That may be a bad assumption.

It has been quite common for many here but mine is 2 years old and so far no problems with the mirrors.

2007 here and the silicon is starting to peel off. Wife just noticed it yesterday... Spent the last week in Arizona at high altitude.. maybe that had something to do with it. Either way I'll screw something into the wood that will hold them for good.

I'm thinking of something in the mirror/picture hanging isle at the Home Depot.

Will need to take a closer look at my mirrors to see if any problems are developing. Thanks for the heads up.

How about glazing points. Get them in the glass section at the home improvement stores. They have a really sharp point and you insert them behind the glass, or mirror in this case, by pressing them in with a screw driver.

I came real close to losing one on to the table. I left it open over night while we were loading up for vacation last summer. The next afternoon when I got home from work I found it hanging on by about 4 inches of the adhesive. I removed the door and removed the remaining adhesive and used liquid nails clear adhesive to remount it. So far it's still in place and no damage to the back of the mirror finish.

Are those held in place with silicone or hot glue?

Mirrored cabinets

I used silicon glue for mine several years ago and they are still holding fine.
