We have hinges to thank for our doors’ ability to open and close. But over time, hinges can cause major door problems and prevent the fixture from functioning properly. Luckily, most hinge issues have simple fixes. Our team is available 24/7 to come and tighten a loose hinge, shim a hinge, and fix a squeaky hinge. We will also give you some tips on how to fix it yourself, in case you like a challenge.
How to Tighten a Loose Hinge
How to Shim a Hinge
If a hinge leaf is recessed below the surface of the jamb or the door edge, the door will not close well and the hinge will bend when you close it. Use a hinge leaf as a template to make a cardboard shim that you can slip behind the leaf. If the hinge leaf is recessed only at the bottom or the top, insert a shim behind only part of the hinge leaf. You can also adjust a door slightly to the left or the right by bending the hinge knuckles. With the door closed slip an adjustable wrench over the door leaf only—not the jamb leaf—and bend.
How to Fix a Stuck Pin
If a hinge pin is stuck and will not come out when you tap it with a screwdriver, first try squirting with penetrating lubricant. Wait about 10 minutes and try tapping again. If it still will not come out, it may be easier to remove the screws from one leaf, which will allow you to remove the door.
How to Fix a Squeaky Hinge
It is usually easiest to replace a rusty hinge. However, if the hinge is of a style that is hard to replace, disassemble it and clean with solvent and a toothbrush. Allow to dry, then polish with very fine sandpaper. Apply lubricant and reassemble.
How to Fix a Door That Opens or Closes on Its Own
An older home may have a doorway that is out of square or out of plumb so that the door opens or closes by itself. Purchase a spring hinge, which can be adjusted to correct the problem.
