lazy susan kitchen cabinet alignment


I have a lazy susan corner kitchen cabinet in the lower cabinets. It works fine, but when it is closed, it no longer lines up. the right side of the door is open a couple inches and the left side is inside the cabinet.
Can't figure out what to adjust - please help.

There are several styles of lazy susans--some have doors attached to the rotating shelves--others have bifold doors attached to the cabinet--

what do you have?

A picture will help if you can figure out how to post it.

It has a problem--the lower or upper bearing cup may have come loose and shifter over--see if the shaft is plumb or leaning---

lazy susan kitchen cabinet alignment


I had this same problem. It worked perfectly fine except for the doors didn't align when closed. I finally figured out how to align it. This type has a plastic cylinder at the top, with a vertical notch on its side, that fits into a ridge on a metal plate. I loosen the nut and bolt on the metal clamp that holds this cylinder in place. I rotated the lazy suan until the notch fit on the ridge. I discovered that if I turned the lazy susan CLOCKWISE, the notch stayed in place, and I could turn it all the way around to align the doors. Then, to open it back up without losing this alignment, I turned the lazy susan COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. Then I tightened the nut and bolt, and tested the doors. It lines up perfectly now!
