Adjusting Door Hinges and Drawers on Overlay Cabinetry

How to adjust door hinges and drawers
There are three ways to adjust the drawer headers:
  • Adjust the undermount glides. There is a cam at the back of the drawer that can be rotated back and forth (Diagram 1). This will move the back of the drawer up or down, thereby adjusting how flat the drawer front will sit with the face of the cabinet.
  • Adjust the screws that hold the drawer front to the drawer box (Diagram 2). These screw holes are oversized to allow vertical and horizontal adjustment. You do not need to remove the drawers to adjust the tracks.
  • Two adjustments can be made using the orange/gray colored mechanism under the drawer box (Diagram 3).
    • A) Rotating the small light gray wheel moves the drawer header left and right in the drawer opening.
    • B) Pushing and pulling the gray tab moves the drawer header up and down in the drawer opening.


Use the two cam screws on each hinge (Diagram 3). The screws are protected so you are unable to turn them too far.
  • The screw on the outside of the face frame (Screw A) moves that corner of the door left and right bringing the doors straight with each other.
  • The screw on the inside of the face frame (Screw B) brings that corner of the door forward and back to keep the door flat to the face of the cabinet.

Doors with optional soft close

Cabinetry built before March 7, 2016, may have optional soft close (the door closes itself after you set it in motion). Cabinetry built on and after March 7, 2016, is standard with soft close. Set the tension by sliding the grey lever (Switch C) up and down (Diagram 4). The door will have to cycle through one closing for the new setting to activate.

If you have further questions or concerns, please contact the Fieldstone Cabinetry dealer where you purchased your cabinetry.
