Hi

Is this sentence fully natural?

(Kitchen)

The cabinet door gave way and fell off its hinges.

Or simply:

As she opened the cabinet, the door fell off its hinges.

Thanks,

Tom

"Give way" is too much. (https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/give-way ) The second sentence is better.

Yes, use #2.

Or just . . . the door fell off.
