noisy kitchen door hinges

Postby Ken Smith » Fri Feb 25, 2011 11:00 am

Two of my kitchen cabinet door hinges have developed a loud click when opening and closing. I have tried lubrication and minor movements to the adjusting screws but neither make any difference. What am I missing?

Ken Smith,
If they have a soft close mechanism it could be this, otherwise the spring loading has failed. Take the offending hinges off and use as a pattern to buy replacements.
