Painting laminate kitchen cabinets

Hi. I had someone paint my laminate kitchen cabinets 11 months ago. He used Cabinet Rescue. They are chipping quite a bit. I am so frustrated. I'm thinking something must not have been done in the prep work. I'm also thinking I might need to have the Cabinets refaced. Help. Ty.

What kind of cabinet laminate...... like Formica ? That surface is very hard and shiny to paint.

Ya, knowing what type of laminate will let us know if it's a viable paint substrate.
Assuming it is a paintable laminate I suspect the wrong prep or primer is the problem.
