One of the drawers in our new 400 wouldn’t close all the way. I removed the drawer and figured out that the latching mechanism that sits at the back of the cabinet to catch the hook on the end of the drawer was not staying open upon pulling the drawer out. Has anyone else seen this issue and is there an easier way to fix than removing and re-mounting/re-aligning the two halves that must mate perfectly to get this to work properly? Seems like a problematic endeavor to undertake to me. It almost feels like this particular catch might have lost function. I can’t even force it to stay open.
This is the offending latch, pulled open by hand by me to as far open as I could get it. When I close the drawer with it in this position, instead of seating inside the latch, the hook hits the little lever and pushes the swing mechanism closed, and then won’t allow the drawer to close.
This is a good latch, working properly, and all the way open after pulling out the drawer.
Might be I just need a new latch, but I’d thought I’d throw it out to the professional [email protected]
