Interior door keeps springing back.


I am trying to replace the interior doors in my house. The door that I installed fits the jamb but it keeps springing back upon closing,. Can anybody give me some insight on what I should do to rectify this problem? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Look when you close the door to see if the hinge side of the door is coming in contact with the stop before the door is fully closed.

The door is hinge bound---there are several causes---

1.The hinge mortice is to deep--shim out the hinge with a playing card or two---

2 The jamb is twisted so that the edge of the door hits the jamb before the door is fully closed----remove the casing and re-shim the jamb so it is not twisted.---you could cheat and shim the hinge only on the pin side---

3. door is hitting the stop molding---remove and reinstall the stop in the proper position

4. something else that might be seen if you posted a picture or two.
