If the kitchen headset or wardrobe doors are badly closed, you need to take scolding and start inspection. You can adjust the canopies without special skills, for this you will not need much time – it is enough to have tools at hand and comply with certain rules. Let us dwell on some subtleties of this case and consider individual cases, since there are several methods for adjusting canopies.
When you need adjustment?
Adjusting the loops, first of all, may be needed immediately after buying a closet.
After it is installed, check the strength of the loops, the doors are exactly fixed, whether they are closed correctly, and in case of detection of defects, immediately fix them.
The same procedure is carried out after moving from one place of residence to another. During transportation, the deformation of the doors may occur, they can break out, so after the transportation of furniture, it is possible to be done by adjusting the loops.
Well, at home, periodically need to be checked how well the lockers are closer, whether the doors are not dangling: the canopy malfunction can be associated with sharp changes in the temperature regime, constant humidity or incorrect actions during operation.
What you need?
Main tools when adjusting door loops – Normal and cross-shaped. Sometimes it may take a plumb or a level for construction work, with the help of which it is necessary to figure out how much structures are exhibited.
Drying may be due to the fact that the cabinet was assembled incorrectly or put on an uneven surface.
For such cases you need a plumb – it will help the master to determine the geometry of the design and, if necessary, put it in terms of level. As a rule, after such manipulations, there is no need to adjust the loops, the curvature is eliminated, everything becomes in its place.
For further work, you will need an understanding of what to do. First, it is necessary to identify the scale of the problem and decide how to adjust. In case of inspection of canopies, a weakened fastening can be discovered – in this case, we are not talking about adjustment, you only need to fasten the screws.
It is necessary to consider the place of formation of the gap, evaluate the size, the displacement radius and indicate the area of the hook. This is the mandatory rules that need to be fulfilled before. They will help to understand what method to regulate: in width (when an uneven clearance between the canvases can be seen), depth or height (when one web is located below or above relative to the other).
How to setup?
Starting stands from vertical canopy adjustment: find the top and bottom loop on it, remove the plugs if they are. Then Screws weaken the screws and fix the cabinet sash to the desired position, lifting or lowering them to the right position.
Bolts twist, holding the canvas at the optimal level. After the door canvases adjusted vertically, proceed to work in depth and horizontal. If you go from the opposite, you still have to return to such a sequence, so you should not waste time.
To adjust the door of the cabinet on the hinges in height and eliminate friction of cloths about the bottom planks, it is necessary to loosen the screws of the screws, planted on two oblong ears, and make sure that there is no door skew.
If necessary, the front door is lifted and screwed up screws: wrapping carefully carefully, feeling the thread to do not break it.
Deep into the loop, when one of the canvases goes away or the doors diverge in opposite sides. For such work requires a dump “Cross”. Two adjusting screws in relation to the full level alignment: if 2-3 mm is not enough, the action continues.
In this case, this adjusting screw turns well, it is crushed stronger than the rest, as it supports the main part of the design. The main thing is to prevent the formation of gaps and cracks between the canvas.
This work requires patience. It is possible that for the desired result will have to try on several times, but it should not annoy you – experience will come with time.
Regardless of the way, there are general rules that you need to adhere to when adjusting the cabinet door.
- Act clearly and consistently – so it will work out faster and allow less mistakes. First spend adjustment in height, and after with respect to other canvases.
- You need to make sure the design is exhibited by level. If there is a skew on geometry, corrected at the beginning of this moment to understand: you need to work further or the problem has disappeared as a result of the proper installation of furniture.
- It is necessary to take into account such a moment as an overwhelming cabinet bundle (characteristic of a wrapped) – in this case, the gap between the door canvases will increase. But there is a permissible norm – the size of the slot should not be more than 5 millimeters.
- There are cases when you first need to adjust the loops, and then do the adjustment of the doors. In this case, check the facade of the facade under the cup or detect when inspection.
How to care?
In order not to walk constantly with scolding and not engaged only to customize the cabinet doors, a number of care activities are recommended.
- After collecting and installing furniture structures 2-3 times a year, a preventive twist of bolts on the door hinges is carried out. This is when the cabinet is infrequent. With intensive operation, for example, a kitchen headset, this makes at least 1 time within a month.
- Regularly need to inspect the designs for detecting distortions, various defects, discharges, and so on. On time to eliminate all problems.
- The adjustment mechanism needs to be lubricated – so it will work better and longer to work. Motor oil or other suitable agent for lubrication. After the procedure, the door must be stolen there – back (close-open) so that the lubricant penetrates the device deeper into the device. If at least 1 time per year lubricate the loop, then the door will not creak and publish other noises.
- You can protect the canopy with the help of an oil closer, which will completely close the adjustment mechanism, and under such a cap and the bolts will be rapid.
Metal loops are pretty reliable, with proper operations can be stopped to 15, and even more years.
There is one “ailment” in the canopies of kitchen heads, especially cabinets located near gas plates or cooking surfaces. A viscous resistance substance is postponed on them – gas combustion product. From this loop stick, not allowing the opportunity to open the doors normally. Such places needed increased attention, should be as often as possible to recall them.
Support the appearance of furniture facades in an attractive form can be without much difficulty and effort. To cope with the skewers of the door structures, it will not be needed a lot of time, and it will take it even less to inspections and prevention.
