Multi adjust door hinges on glass doors
I have a cabinet on which on of the doors has dropped making it scrape on the bottom. I can see that there is an irregular gap at the top and have tried to adjust it but it's a nightmare with these hinges. Is there a simple way to do this. I know I can adjust the hang by altering the position of the big screw, but what is the purpose of the other screw?

These are the three most common adjustments. Usually there are three individual screws on each hinge to alter the situations shown here. One of those screws handles one of the directions of movement shown. Turn the screw to go one way (positive) and turn it the other way to move the door the other direction (negative).

Sometimes it is a "loosen the screw... move the door... re-tighten the screw" situation. In this case, just loosen each screw barely enough that the door will move. Makes it easier than getting the door flopping all over the place from really loose screws.

You can Google good, clear photos of how to do this online.
