Cabinetry Care and Maintenance

With Fehrenbacher, quality comes first.

This applies to all stages of a project, including while you are enjoying your cabinets. If any issues should arise, please call with your questions and we will find a solution.

Wood Cabinets

To maintain the beauty of your wood cabinets, several items have to be considered. Wood has many natural enemies and excessive moisture is the worst. Lack of moisture is almost as harmful. Too much humidity will result in warping and mildew stains; too little will cause shrinkage which loosens joints and curls veneers. Temperature extremes are also harmful. Wood cabinets do best in a steady temperature between 65 and 75 degrees, with 45 to 50 percent humidity. Use a humidifier or dehumidifier when needed. Our stained cabinets are finished with three coats of oven-cured conversion varnish which produces a very durable surface. This surface requires no waxing. When cleaning your stained, glazed, or painted cabinets, never use any type of strong or abrasive type cleanser. This finish may be wiped clean using a soft, damp cloth and mild detergent. Be careful not to use an excessive amount of water. Rinse with a cloth dampened with clear, warm water and then dry with a clean cloth.

Drawer Adjustments

Below is a very helpful video demonstrating how to adjust your drawers.

Hinge Adjustments

Do NOT adjust the 2-screws that fasten the hinge to the back of the door or cabinet frame unless they become loose.

There are 3-screws on each hinge that can be used to adjust the doors.

Cabinet Hinge Adjustment

  1. The first screw, probably the one you will use the most, adjusts the door left and right. This screw is used if your pair gap is too tight or too large.
  2. The middle screw, recessed into the hinge, adjust the door up and down. NOTE: Any adjustment to this screw must be made equally on all hinges on the door.
  3. The third screw adjusts the door in and out. (It controls how close the door lays to the frame.)
