Answer:

The doors of a Classic (formerly Built-In) Series French door unit can be adjusted in and out, and side to side tilt.

To make adjustments, slightly loosen the two upper hinge bolts on the upper hinge plate using a 1/2" wrench and:

In-and-out adjustment

  • For the left-hinge door, using a 5/32" Allen wrench, turn the adjustment bolt clockwise to bring the handle side of the door inward, and counterclockwise to move the handle side outward.
  • Reverse directions for the right-hinge door.

Side-to-side tilt adjustment

  • For the left-hinge door, using a 3/8" wrench, turn the adjustment bolt clockwise to raise the handle side of the door, and counterclockwise to lower the handle side.
  • Reverse directions for the right-hinge door.

French door models cannot be adjusted up and down.
