Question about Top Knobs M826 Door Pull

1 Answer

Bashing doorknobs My bathroom has 2 doors at a 90 degree angle from each other when closed. Both hinges are near the corner and both doors open into the bath. Needless to say, if one door is open and I come in the other one, the knobs bash into each other or the doors bind interlocking the knobs. Is there some type of door stop(s) that can hold the doors always about 6" apart and slide across a door while they move?

You can go to any home center of hardware store to get a automtic door closer. (spring loaded hinge). that will altumatically close the door, that will prevent the door stay open and bash into each other.
there is no door stopper is big or long enough to do the trick.

Door sticks terribly...


First check to make sure that the hinges are securely fastened to the door jamb. Gently try to tighten all screws but be careful not to over-tighten or strip the screw heads. It's possible loose screws could be causing the door to hang slightly making it fit improperly into the door jamb.

It's also possible that the door frame isn't 100% "true" and it could be causing the storm door to get caught along the top or bottom edge. You can check with a level to make sure that both sides of the door are plumb (perfect 90 degree angle). You can also use a carpenter's square to check that all of the interior angles in the door jamb are 90 degrees respective to each other.

If everything is square then it could be that the hinges on the storm door are not aligned properly. With the storm door slightly ajar use a level on the vertical edge both at the top and the bottom. It should, ideally, be the same as the door jamb. If it's slightly off you could try shimming either the top or bottom hinge as necessary to even the storm door until it is aligned with the door jamb.

If you find that your door jamb is not "true" then you may need to consult with a carpenter or storm door installation expert to find a way to trim your storm door or refit it for easy opening and closing. Many older homes settle over time and sometimes door jambs slip out of alignment. The door itself may still open and close as usual but it may have sufficient gaps on all sides to prevent it from getting stuck. The newer storm door may be too tight a fit and catching on a door jamb that has settled out of true.

My JenAir oven door doesn't close fully


most likely you have bad door hinges if the door doesn't close correctly,i don't know if you know this but alot of parts are no loner available for this model,it must be old,the only thing you can get for the door is the hinges and that's it,you'll need the rest of the model number to get the right hinges you're missing the last two letters,you can go here put your model number in to look up parts.

We have a Jenn Air Wall over that the door will not close air tight. They have replaced the hinges but you can actually stick a thumb between the top part of the oven and the door. They say it's supposed...


there's a door gasket that seals it not the metal part of the door so you might be able to stick your thumb in there as long as the seal on the door is closing tightly to the frame,when you open the door it should be on a 90 degree angle,before you had new hinges put on the door, most likely the door sagged lower to the floor and didn't close properly,if you think alot of heat is escaping you could have a bad door gasket.so open the door,look at it from the side,it should look like an L or at a 90 degree angle or even up a little,if it is the hinges aren't the problem if you think to much heat is escaping,call whoever did the work for you and have them check the door seal or gasket same thing.you didn't send the model number so i don't know what seal you need,go here and watch video should be similar and you can put your model number in to find correct part

hope this helps you out,if heat is coming out with door closed and you have new hinges this is most likely what's wrong

How do i keep a bedroom door from swinging closed on it's own?


If it's not a breeze blowing it closed, then the problem is that the hinges are not quite vertical, so the door is actually falling closed. After confirming that the hinge screws are not loose, check for vertical with a good level in two directions----- Open the door 90 degrees so that the hinges are open 90 degrees. You want to check that the hinges are vertical to each other on the door jamb and on the door. You might be able to make a minor adjustment by loosening the bottom hinge from the door jamb and placing a shim (like a piece of cardboard from a notepad or a credit card) behind it. (But this might cause a misalignment of the latch with the strike plate. If it is not vertical in the other direction, you will have to move a hinge on the door frame. Or you could just use a door stop.

Bathroom doorknob stuck in locked position.


Hello,

I will tell you how to fix 'em. Open the Door Knob with a screw driver, gently pull aart the two knobs once open, then look for a long sliding rod, pull one knob away, twist the Knob untlil it is in unlock position, put them back together to test if it slips properly. If it does not, there is something preventing the rod from rotating freely. Try to ensure it rotates freely. Then screw back together :)
