    Hi All
    Moved into new house and 2 of the interior doors spring open about 6" wont stay in the hole why ?
    Has the hinges been sunk too much or not enough ? or something else
    Cheers

    The hinges are probably set too deep into the wood. Try packing between the hinge and the recess in the wood, with several layers of Cornflake packet cardboard, cut to the size of the hinge.

    The upper face of the hinge should be approximately level with the edge face of the door and the face of the wood.
