Adjustment of AVENTOS lift mechanism

How do you adjust the AVENTOS HF lift mechanism to the front weight?

One important assblum_aventos_adjustmentembly step for the AVENTOS lift system is the adjustment of the two lift mechanisms to the weight of the furniture front. If the two lift mechanisms are not set correctly for the front weight, the front will spring up when opened, or close again by itself, as you can see in the video.

You know that lift mechanisms have been adjusted correctly if the lift system stays in any opening position in the end. It is important to adjust the lift mechanism to ensure smooth functioning, especially if lift mechanisms are fitted with SERVO-DRIVE.

In this video, I will explain how you can adjust the lift mechanisms correctly using our EASY ASSEMBLY app.

 

For older AVENTOS HF lift mechanisms, it may be that the front closes unusually quickly at the end of the closing motion. If it is not possible to correct this despite adjustment being carried out correctly, please get in touch with our contact partners in your country, so that we can assist you as swiftly as possible.

    Totally useless information about adjusting the balance, without knowing what on Earth is supposed to be attached to the drill. Crosshead screwdriver, Allen bit, star driver, what? Impossible to see into the adjustment hole to see what might be required! Sooo frustrating

      Hello Peter,

      thank you for your comment. For the adjustment you ned a crosshead bit. You wil get the best result with a Pozi 2.

        I agree with Peter. For the cost of the system you would think that Blum would throw in a driver. At least a picture of a driver. Most drivers are too big for the European hole. The best I can do is a slot screwdriver and that takes forever. Nice system, no backup plan.

          Hello Bruce,

          thank you for your comment. You have to use a #2×2 POZI driver bit. You will find this information also in our AVENTOS brochure.
          But you are right, we will try to implement these information in other Blum documents to.

    I agree with Peter and Patrick here. In Canada (Toronto) I can’t seem to find a place that sells this particular POZI driver bit. The guys at Home Depot or Canadian Tire have never heard of this POZI standard and they are fully stocked with Phillips driver bits instead. I decided to give it try with that piece but it is still too tick to go into the adjustment hole. I’ve been trying with PH1 and PH2 and nothing. I really don’t want to call the Blunt support for this small issue that could be easily fixed with any standard screw. On Ebay, this particular Blum POZI screwdriver #2 is 11.45 USD + 14 USD for shipping. Not an option to be honest for a simple adjustment.

    Team BLUM – please chime in here with more options.

    Why a simple PH2 won’t work here?
    Thanks

      Hello Rodrigo,
      this is a new issue for us. I tried to adjust an AVENTOS with a PH2 and a POZI 2 and it worked. But it could be possible that you use a PH2 bit from a different company which is thicker. We will have a look at this topic.
      For now I will suggest:
      We also have POZI 2 bits in our program which fit perfectly. We will send you such a bit and you could try it for yourself. In this case our customer service will contact you as soon as possible.

    Hi i just bought a brand new unit and the kitchen has this lift up doors that don’t lift up and stay up so I tried fixing the issue with Blum videos unfortunately no success.
    The udjusment hole is now unusable as it’s worn out because no matter what position I put them in it wouldn’t hold up the doors. I’m guessing this one is a factory defect I ask my neighbors theirs can hold the doors when adjusted.
    Not a very user friendly plug and play product.

      Hello Harun,
      It could be that in you have the wrong lift mechanism installed in your cabinet. If this is true, then the door will not stay open because the lift mechanism is too weak, (Even if you adjust the lift mechanism).
      If you would like, I can have our customer service contact you as soon as possible to help you out. However, to do this I need to know in which country you live. Can you come back to me with this information?

    Hi, I’m also having the problem of a cabinet door that has suddenly started slamming shut (after 7 years of working well). I’ve tried to adjust without success. Can you please give further guidance. I’m not a professional or even particularly handy. Just a woman who opens and closes her kitchen cabinets a lot! I live in Israel. Thank you!

    I need assistance. I have three Aventos cabinets. All three were installed in the manner. The doors on two of the three will not balance and slam shut. The closers are different than in the instructions in that they have a mounting bracket that mounts to the front of the cabinet rather than the side walls. I guess you made them easier to install. I thank you for this. However I need them to strong enough to support the doors. Please contact me in the USA.

      Hello,
      thank you for your comment. It seems that in your cabinet are the wrong lift mechanism. When they are too weak, you cannot balance the fronts, even when you adjust the lift mechanism to the maximum. I will forward your request to our customer service in the USA, they will help you out.

    Many thanks, re the Pozi 2 tip: It’s still a bit clumsy, but it bites, and does adjust the mechanism… (which was well hidden, until I stumbled upon the video, and this commentary).

    I just had Adventist’s lift hinges installed with the Blum push latches. The contractor is insisting that the 36w x 28h x 5/8 ply doors are too heavy and will require handles. Is he correct? Handles were not the look we were going for…..

    I have an aventoss hf unit which has locked shut. There appears to be no way to open it as nothing is exposed. I can not find any information anywhere online to see how we might get it open. Has worked well for the last 6 years or so.

      Dear Patricia,

      is there a SERVO-DRIVE unit attached to the AVENTOS HF? If so, can you verify that the unit has power? In order to do so, please remove the cover cap of the lift mechanism with SERVO-DRIVE and see, if an orange LED is lit.
      Even if SERVO-DRIVE is attached to the lift mechanism and even if it has no power, it should be possible to move the lift system freely by reaching into the small gap between the front and the cabinet side/bottom and opening it.

      Kind regards
      Matthias
