Kitchen drawer frustration

There’s a post titled, “Kitchen Drawer Removal 2018” that I wanted to post this in, but despite searching the exact title after finding it by googling, can’t find it...the search function on here should just be disabled, totally ineffective.

With frustration, I write asking for some help here. My previously perfectly closing drawers no longer close properly after getting a bag stuck behind one earlier. I fear my middle kitchen drawer will never close well again. I was able to get the drawer and bag out using the advice from the “Kitchen Drawer Removal 2018” post, but can’t get the drawer to give me that good solid close since. There are a couple adjustments I see, little gray ones, but no clue what position to put them in or what else I can do to get my drawer closing like factory again.

If you were unable to remove the drawer off the slides... this is necessary to check out point #1.

#1- The plastic latching mechanism's use very short screws and they vibrate loose and the brackets will shift. If you cannot close the drawer and do not hear that 'click'... that would be a 100% indication it is the latch and not the guides on the drawer.

Check point #2. The 'latch' portion of the drawer system may be in the LOCK position and you need a small screw driver to OPEN the latch so the drawer component can slide into it and lock. The drawer needs to be removed, as well. You will see the latch mounted way in the back. If it is flush, you need to pull the lever out to open it for the drawer section to be secured when closing the drawer.

Our 2006 23 foot and 2014 25 foot were chronic in this area.

You may want to tie your drawers from the bottom to the top and be able to tie them off in the event any want to come out of the cabinet and end up on the floor or hanging. This we cured with the 23 foot and did it automatically in the 25 to make it... Road Worthy.

The overhead doors to the cabinets were excellent. Always dependable.

Hope one of these suggestions work.

This theory works on all of these door closing systems. Next will be the hinges coming loose or detaching... and that is a longer story.

Not sure why the search function didn't work for you. I just typed in "kitchen drawer" and this link was the first one to pop up...
