RE: fixing base cabinet lazy susan that drops down (Follow-Up #4)

I was struggling with my corner cabinet lazy susan too. I had to take it apart and remove it so a plumber could get to a drain line behind it. When I put it back together its doors were dragging on the cabinet bottom. It turned out the trick for me was to loosen the set screw at the bottom of the vertical post (but on TOP of the bottom shelf), then lift the whole thing up a little bit, which allowed a sliding post within the center post to slide down. After the sliding post slid down I tightened the set screw, thus raising the whole assembly enough to clear the cabinet. The picture in the attached link shows what my set screw looks like.

I know this is an ancient thread I'm adding to, but I thought this note would be helpful.

Here is a link that might be useful: Corner Lazy Susan Set Screw picture

Under the bottom shelf, or at the top bracket, there should be a pivot and an eccentric which when correctly adjusted cause the doors to come to rest in the normally closed position.
Also at the top will be a set screw which captures the shaft which may be loose.
Grabbing the shaft and lifting will tell you a lot.
It sounds as if this eccentric has or is wearing out.
Here is a link which may be of help. Click on any of the models and follow it to the PDF's;

fixing base cabinet lazy susan that drops down

posted by: linnea56 on 11.18.2006 at 01:16 am in Home Repair Forum

In our kitchen, one inside corner of the base cabinets has a lazy-susan type fixture. It is the kind with a fixed right-angle type door (not the hinged kind) where 2 3/4 circle shelves are attached with screws. The assembly turns on a pole in the middle; to turn it you just neeed to push on one of the outer doors.

For some reason the whole assembly is dropping gradually to the point where the doors, that should be outside, are stuck inside the frame. That means it can't be closed.

Several months ago we tried removing the shelves to see how we could adjust the central post, but couldn't find anything we could change. We ended up attaching the outside doors higher up to compensate, so they could swing free of the frame again. But now it's dropped down again and the doors are stuck behind the frame again.

Anyone know how to fix this?
