Drawer Fronts not flush, please help

Found 24th Jun 2014
I have installed a new kitchen drawer unit but the drawer fronts are not flush on the left side.

The right side of the 3 drawers touch the unit but none of the left side do.

How can I put this right as I am a noob DIYer.

Thanks in advance.

might need the rail on the left side moving towards the back of the unit

The rail is also the side of the drawer though

might be best if u put a picture up

there is usually a rail on the drawer and the unit,move the rail on the left side on the unit back slightly by whatever the gap is

As I say the rail and side are 1 piece

has it got metal rails?
If so one side must fasten to the cupboard/unit and the other to the drawer to work, adjust that rail.
If it is just a wooden rail glued on and u cut i the side of the unit then the drawer isnt square or the unit isnt square, one needs shaved off to allow for this

Yes metal rails attached to the carcase, I have measured the gaps and they are fine

Where the fronts clip onto the draw there might be some sort of adjustment screws, one to move the front up and down and one to move the front in or out
