Hi – our norton base unit drawer front is really loose and there does not appear to be a way to tighten it
Please can you create a support ticket here and attach either a supporting image or supporting video, so we can refer with our in house technician? Create Support Ticket.
Well, I did not actually think that a quick search on google would help me fix the front of my kitchen drawer which came off when I pulled too hard and something was blocking the draw. I thought all was lost and was imagining crazy ideas involving lots of super glue ! But I was wrong. This page rocks !!
Thank you for the feedback, glad the page helped!
How do you remove a drawer?
Hi, to remove the drawers, you need to pull them out to full extension and lift upwards with a fair amount of force and the drawer box will come off the runners and you can then pull it out towards you.
On one of my kitchen base units containing two large (deep) drawers the top drawer front is rubbing on the bottom drawer front.
I have adjusted the top drawer to the vertical maximum using screw ‘B’ as in the diagram. Whilst it is now just a tiny bit clear of rubbing it is not the same clearance as the other kitchen base units drawers.
Hi, would it be possible to lower the bottom one slightly?
