Jill casked

I have a kaboodle 450 wide pantry where the metal baskets are connected to the door. Pull out door and baskets. Problem is the door soft close keeps sliding to the off position and the pantry door is out of line vertically. So I have a gap at the top of about 70mm and a narrower gap at the bottom. Have followed instructions to realign with not success and it’s getting worse. How do I fix it so my pantry door closes fully and is aligned top and bottom? Thanks

Are you able to work out if the soft-close is functioning correctly? Is it placed accurately? Also is the pantry installed level - horizontal and vertical checks with a good spirit level may reveal something is not properly aligned. Sometimes something minor creates a bigger issue when everything is in place - without photos it is difficult to think of a solution.

Have checked the levels and it was installed professionally. Initially it was perfect and then I noticed the soft close kept sliding out / off. How can I get photos to you. Thanks for answering so quickly.

Hi Donna, thank you for your question. Our kaboodle ball bearing drawer slides are rated at 45kg so that’s 45kg drawer (regardless of cabinet size). Please let us know if we can help with anything else. Regards, kaboodle kitchen

Does any one experienced this .
My bench top is a flat laminate and was replaced a few years ago from gloss as it had faults and stains inside the laminate so They replaced it, I wanted same colour but flat not gloss.
Meanwhile 2 to 3 years later it now always looks dirty like a smudgy ,greasy look and it does not matter how much I clean it with soapy water it just does not go away.
I have contacted Kaboodle waiting for answer, also draw and cupboard does not close properly.
The bench top is a worry, we have no kidds and are so careful.
Looks dirty
Appreciate and issues someone else may have had. Thankyou

Slide the drawer out as far is it can go and look for a small black lever located on either side of the drawer slide. Pushing this lever down (and up on opposite side) will disengage the slide and allow you to slide the drawer out.

In my new kitchen, I have Kaboodle push open and close drawers (bunnings) which don't always stay closed, right from the beginning.! I'm over it.
Is there an easy way to stop this mechanism and just put handles on to open and close normally!

Hi. I have a new kitchen in gloss Calcutta.
Why do I see a ripple effect on the benchtops?

Generally the substrate under the laminate has imperfections in it and that can show through the laminate. If there are windows that will reflect light on the bench top sometimes it’s a good idea not to have gloss because it shows these imperfections

Is this a fault in the manufacturing?

Do I need to have base end panels either side of a dishwasher in Kaboodle?

1 answer

Generally you don’t require panels either side of the dishwasher and they also react areas on the floor that are hard to clean when you are sweeping the floor. Sometimes it’s better to try and match the kicker height to the dishwasher panel if that’s possible

Kaboodle are sold by Bunnings. We were most happy with our kitchen that we put together ourselves and the warranty service by Kaboodle when we had an issue. (They were cheaper 10 years ago than Ikea, and we are pretty happy with our Ikea kitchen in our new house. Now Ikea is cheaper than Kaboodle seems to be, and have a lot of fantastic features that I wanted.) People should contact kaboodle if they have problems before they randomly trash the product. Their customer service is exceptionally good and they stand by their product. Our white doors went yellow, and kaboodle replaced the lot with the best white product. Now our 7 year old kitchen still looks brand new.

We’ve just installed Matt white (Feta whip) bench tops this week. Slightest thing makes awful marks and takes a good few sponge wipes with soapy water to clean. I’ve been dreaming about my white kitchen for 10 years and now this. Not very impressed to say the least.

We are installing a Kaboodle corner wall cabinet. The hinges to the cupboard keep popping off when we open the door. It appears that the latch is not holding the hinge well. When have adjusted screws and still not working. Please help

If I understand you correctly, the bit that 'flaps' on the door is not clicking into the flat bit that you have screwed to the inside of the cupboard. You have to push that flappy bit onto the flat bit until it clicks. I have not done this for a while but you have to sort of slide it until it clicks in and then you press down like an old fashioned suitcase with the metal latches. Maybe you could adjust the screws on the top and bottom to the fullest in or out and up or down so they are the same positions top and bottom and then try it. Whatever you do, do not force it (even though you feel like it :) ).
