Why is my cabinet door crooked?
Cabinets doors can become crooked for many different reasons. Sometimes it is just time and wear and tear that throw them out of alignment. Sometimes it is just a less than detail oriented installer that is at fault. Or, maybe you just built your own shaker doors and need to hang them straight.
What causes cabinet doors to not close?
Often, the problem is that the rear adjustment screw has come loose, which makes the door sit askance. The front adjustment screw controls the distance between the hinge and the side of the cabinet. When this distance is too great, the cabinet door won’t close because it’s tilted.
