In the previous articles, we talked about the care and maintenance of cabinet fronts, benchtops, shelves, cutting boards, and kitchen accessories. In this last part, we will tackle appliances, hinges, and drawer units.


For the care and use of all appliances supplied, we recommend that you thoroughly read the Service Books supplied with the equipment. Any enquiries regarding the use of appliances should be directed to the manufacturer of such appliances. Should you require servicing of your appliance during or after the warranty period please contact your relevant appliance manufacturer


The all‐metal hinges used are of the highest standard in design and construction. If adjustment after installation and final inspection (or later, due to wear and tear) is necessary, follow the instructions referring to the diagram on Hinge Adjustment. Hinge adjustment after final inspection is the responsibility of the purchaser. For a smooth operation of all hinges it is recommended that one or two drops of light machine oil be put on all pivoting points once a year.

Side Adjustment: Tighten or loosen adjusting screw to adjust the distance between doors.

Depth Adjustment: Loosen screw, reposition distance between carcase and door, and then retighten screw.

Height Adjustment: Loosen screw on all hinges before repositioning height of door, and then tighten screw.

For Hinge Door Removal: Whilst holding door, pull lever toward you ‐ repeat for all hinges.

To Refit Hinge Door: Hook part of hinge onto hinge base plate, then press hinge to snap into place.

Drawer Units

Your drawers are made of the highest quality materials and as such do not need any special maintenance. The drawer fronts have been adjusted on installation and should not need any further adjustment, however, if for any reason adjustment is necessary, follow the instructions on the diagram below.

Height Adjustment: Loosen screw 2 slightly. Adjust eccentric screw 1, adjustment range 2mm. Retighten screw 2.

Side Adjustment: Loosen screw 2 slightly. Move front into required position, adjustment range 1.5mm. Retighten screw. Maintenance of other moving parts such as drawer runners is not necessary, however, runners should be kept free of dirt for continual smooth operation.
