for that type of thing you want to use contact cement, but it is HARD TO DO UNLESS the entire thing is up.
Using contact cement, once it touches it is THERE for ever.
Put 1/4" dowel rods under it and apply the contact cement to both sides, then pull the rods out and use a j roller to press it down.

Think i could get some contact cement in with a syringe? That stuff is pretty thick as I recall.

Countertop delamination

You could try a long putty knife to smear it around and push the contact cement underneath the laminate. I have done this on do or twice with good results. Use the roller to press down and push out the excess contact cement. I would rather fix that than take it back to the dealer to do. You will probably do a better job and you know it will be done right. As a last resort, find a reputable cabinet repair person in your area to give you an estimate.
Good luck to you.

I had a counter top delaminate years ago in my (then) S&B kitchen. I came up with the idea of applying heat to re-stick the glue.

So,

I put a double layer of bath towel over the spot and used my clothes iron on high. It re-stuck and never came loose again.

Again, that was years ago and different adhesive may be used now.

My parents had an issue with a portion of their glue down hard wood floor that released in a small spot in the middle of the floor. There was a kit where you drilled a hole and applied glue with a syringe. Not sure if they have same for countertops but check a local countertop store as house/camper would prob be same fix

I forgot one step of my repair;

After applying heat with the iron, leave the towel on and add something VERY heavy for a few hours while the glue cools. (IIRC I used a new/clean cinder block.)

And yes, the delamination I repaired was a bubble in the center of the counter top.
