Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Good morning! I have an RV repair facility and work on these systems for a living. Please give me a few minutes to type up an answer here for you. And don't be alarmed if I don't get right back to you when you respond. We work on more than one question at a time here when it is busy like it is now. I may be on a phone chat with another customer and typically those last less than 5 minutes. Your patience is appreciated! Thanks! Randall

That usually just means that the spring tensioners are broken and those are available from most dealers or a number of online sources. If the actual door is broken then let me know. I hope this proves helpful here. Randall https://thenorcoldguy.com/norcold-n300-n302-parts/
