Please can someone give me a tip on how I stop my wardrobe doors scrapeing along the drawers below. I have a combi double robe with 2 drawers beneath.
It doesn't matter how high I adjust the doors or how much I alter the adjustment screws, it still scrapes.
I can only open the doors when the drawers are closed.
I know it's not the end of the world...but it's annoying!

By the way...these are MFI units (if that makes a difference!)

Thanks.

Do you have too much weight in it?

I know it sounds daft but we had the same sort of problem, the solution take the doors off turn them upside down and swap sides! They looked as if all the wholes where in the same positions either way round, the knobs appeared to be in the dead centre height wise but there was about 2-3mm difference and it made the difference!


Now if anybody has any plans for built in wardrobes diy stylee can you point me in the right direction?

There's ya problem! :roll:

If you have adjusted them as far as they'll go, but still no good, either get new hinges or take a small round file to the bottom of the 2 elongated screw holes.

Now there's a tip! I will do that later although both wardrobes are the same so I'm not sure. Fingers crossed.
Thanks.

At least they are not Argos!! :-D

I'm not quite sure what you mean about filing the holes.
Would that not drop it further?

If you want to set hinges again, support door or get someone to hold it, start with top hinge on left door.


Anticlockwise turn screw 1 til stop.

Adjust and tighten screw 3 so it's in the middle of serrations on the slot.

Do the same on bottom hinge but screw 3 should be slightly right of middle.

Loosen (two turns) screws 2 and 4 on both hinges,
push door up til screws 2 / 4 are at bottom of elongated holes, tighten.

Do one or two clockwise turns on screw 1 of bottom hinge only.



Do the same on right door but screw 3 on bottom hinge should be slightly left of middle.

Filing the bottom of the elongated holes for screws 2 / 4 will allow you to push the door higher, only file a little though. :whistling:

we had a similar problem with the door rubbing against the side of wardrobe when it opened, turned out the hinges were on back to front even though they were on the same way as pictured in the instructions!
