How To Adjust Blum Hinges to Align Cabinet Doors

The door alignment process with Blum self-closing, inserta hinges involves three-axis adjustments to achieve a professional-looking finish. Here's how it works:

  1. Vertical Adjustment:

    • Utilizes the elongated slots in the Mounting Plate for vertical movement.
    • Loosen the two screws attaching the Mounting Plate to the face frame.
    • Allows for a vertical shift of up to 5/32-inch or 4mm, perfect for aligning doors along the bottom and correcting minor drilling inaccuracies.
  2. In-and-Out Adjustment:

    • Managed by the screw farthest from the cabinet door on the hinge body.
    • Adjust the distance between the door and the face frame.
    • Offers a range of 3/16 inches or 5mm, compensating for sound-reducing rubber bumpers' thickness.
  3. Left-Right Adjustment:

    • The screw closest to the cabinet door on the hinge controls this adjustment.
    • Allows the tops and bottoms of the doors to move independently to the left or right.
    • Provides a range of 3/32 inches or 2mm, ensuring precise gaps between double doors.
