Hi all,
On our 2012 Nuevo EK the double door under sink keeps opening when traveling.
The catch stays closed but the hinge area opens outwards,has any body had this problem? If so any suggestions for a fix.
Thanks in anticipation,Gary.

Isn't there a magnetic catch there?

Can't remember, but if there is it might need a bit of adjustment - and if there isn't I'd suggest fitting one. Just a simple cupboard door catch will do.

yes magnetic catch at the hinge, on mine the catch is only just long enough to get about one and a half turns on the securing nut - the catch  pulls away stuck to the door

I had the same problem.  I used a turncatch from table storeage in wardrobe and screwed it between the cupboard door and the cutlery drawer. Works a treat.There should be a magnetic catch in the cupboard. Mine had one but it was not strong enough to keep door closed.
