What worked for me, at least partially, is using line trimmer line. Cut a small piece of it, about 2mm. Push into the hole. Screw in the screw. See if it holds.

Re: kitchen cabinets

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @bnpg86. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about replacing a cabinet screw.

You might like to post a picture of where the screw has pulled out from so our helpful members have a better idea of what you are working with. Let me know if you need a hand uploading images. As @favorite0295 has mentioned, a piece of plastic or timber splinter pushed into the hole could provide enough purchase for the screw to bite back in. Alternatively, you could include a small amount of Liquid Nails, which will cure in the hole and glue the screw thread in there.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
