Question about Amerock Hardware & Accessories

Open Question

I need a backset replacement for a 1980's Atrium Door.

This door has wider than normal glass panels which resulted in a "stubby" lever with a 2" backset. The backset and working parts of the door are one piece. I've been told that Atrium Company quit making them and National Lock made them for a while and then their operation was taken over the Amerock. However, I've been unable to locate the part. My levers are antique brass and are still functional, but I need the interior one piece replacement part that includes the 2" backset. One side of the lever handset has stationary pins that go through the 1-piece working part to secure it in the hole cut for the door hardware.

SOURCE: no ice to the door

The motor is behind the ice bin and yes, it can get water on it and freeze up. I actually fixed one a month ago that I had to remove the motor and let it dry at room temp for a week in order to get it to work when reinstalled. Two or three days and it would freeze right back up in a little while. This usually happens when you've had a problem with the waterfall into the ice reservoir that a bit pours over the edge or when you've defrosted the freezer or left it open long enough to let ice thaw to some degree. You can pull the ice bin out and twist the motor by hand. If it is stuck it is froze but if it moves it is probably bad. You can close the switch with the door open and check with a volt-meter to see if there is voltage going to it if the motor turns freely. It will have a lot of tension but you can turn by hand.

You may also want to look closely at the lock bolt again, because some of them come with a backset adjuster. Some of the Schlage and Kwiksets will allow you to twist the barrel and change the backset...

How to install new door lock


For a residential door, you may choose either 2 3/4" (70 mm) backset or 2 3/8" (60 mm) backset. Some locks are not adjustable.
Choose the backset required for the lock. Check the thickness of the door. Standard installation height is 35-36" above the floor.
Bore a 1" diameter hole into the edge of the door and a 2 1/8" hole through the face. A drilling jig helps align these two holes. If you measure and mark the holes carefully and drill accurately, it can be done without a jig, but for about $20.00 the jig helps avoid lock alignment problems or possibly trashing a door. Follow the instructions for the jig and the lock manufacturers instructions.

Replacing door knob need short backset


There are locks with short backsets, but Kwikset doesn't make them. If your door has such a narrow stile that you cannot put a household duty lock into it, you are probably not interested in security, so anything you can find will do the job. Look online for locks for French windows or patio doors.

If you are interested in security, then check out Adams Rite locks, which are used in narrow stile aluminum storefront doors, but they also make some for wood doors.

If you are replacing a very old lock and your style is big enough for a 2-3/8" backset lock, then do it right and treat it like a new installation. Use a jig that can hold the hole saw in the right place, use a router to cut away trim that will get in the way of the lock, and install a modern lockset.

You can shake front door when locked and the door is loose not tight


It sounds like the distance between the lock in the door and the strike plate in the door frame is barely enough to meet securely. Review the lock installation sheet because it MAY be possible to adjust the "backset" for your lock. You did not mention your brand of lock. For example,
Review Steps 1 & 2 of instructions for the Powerbolt:
http://www.weiserlock.com/PDFs/instructions/Electronics/Powerbolt.pdf
Or watch this excellent installation video for the Schlage BE365, at about1:58 minutes into the video you will see how to adjust the backset:
Go to
http://consumer.schlage.com/Service-Support/Pages/InstructionsandManuals.aspx#2

Then click on "Installing your BE365 Keypad Deadbolt" video.

Many brands of lock have a similar backset adjustment, and you may have your set too short.
If yours is all ready set for the 2 3/4" backset, then you need some carpenter skills to close up the door gap.

I need to replace the passenger side front window on a 1980 cadillac fleetwood. How do I remove the door panel correctly? Where do I go from there?


You need to remove all screws first. Any screw visible. Remove the chrome cup from the door handle area, the door strap, and the master control switches. Can't remember if there are screws on the lower end of the door panel or if there is plastic clips. If there are plastic clips, go to an auto parts store and get the tool for it. It looks like the tool you use to remove dandelions...flat tip with a slot in it. Slip it between the door panel and the door itself and pop the panel out. Try and get behind the clips. Once you have it unscrewed and unclipped, pop the panel upwards....you might have to jiggle it a little to get the seal off of the glass.

Once you have the panel off, just take a look at the glass and the channel it is sitting in. It is pretty straight forward.
