I have a small tear on my vinyl floor in the kitchen. Any ideas on how I can repair it?

About all you can do is clue the piece back down and lay some books on it for about a day.
Autumn is likely correct, at least as far as I know...
I've had tears in mine & I've glued it back down.
Keep in mind though, that if either surface is SMOOTH you'll want to run sand paper over it a few times so that the glue can hold better.
And be sure to weight it down for a day or two so that it'll hold.
Here's a URL with EXACT INSTRUCTIONS for repairing or replacing VINYL TILE or patching a Vinyl floor:
I use clear caulking, spread evenly and smooth out, then put a piece of plastic wrap on it, and a very heavy object like an old cast iron iron or pot until it dries. Works well, can't see the caulking because it is clear it lets the original color show through.
