Which tool do I need to properly adjust the AVENTOS lift mechanism?

This picture shows an AVENTOS HFAVENTOS lift systems must open and close effortlessly and stay in any desired position. The lift mechanisms must therefore be adjusted according to the front weight. Please allow us to show you the best tool to use for this.

 

 

 

 

 

It is very time-consuming to adjust the lift mechanism by hand using a screwdriver. We therefore recommend that you use a cordless screwdriver.

The bit we would recommend for the screwdriver is the Pozidriv® PZ cross slot bit size 2, length 39 mm.

This picture shows an Pozi 2 bit

Alternatively a Phillips PH 2 bit would also be suitable. With this, however, please be aware that you can only use the Phillips bits that taper towards the tip.

Can’t find a suitable bit?  Then just get in touch with your Blum contact.

    I have two doors with the Aventos HK lifts. One is working fine. They are not big or heavy. I am having trouble with one door not holding at the top. Is this something that can be adjusted?

      Hi Ashley,

      at first glance it seems that your lift mechanism is not adjusted properly to the weight of the cabinet front.
      It is very easy to increase the tension of the springs inside the lift mechanism so that the fronts stay still in any position.
      The following video on our youtube channel will shed light on where to find the adjustment screw: https://youtu.be/uNlNTpWKiY8?t=62

      I hope this helps, otherwise please let us know.

      Best regards

    I have 2 doors with the Aventos HF system. One is working fine but the other is not doing the braking when closing the door so it closes violently. Tried adjusting the tension of the springs to a minimum but it is not helping. Where can I adjust that breaking movement when closing the door

        Hi Matthias,
        I am also having the same problem where one door closes abruptly with no braking. This seemed to happen overnight without any adjustment of the springs occurring (the same setting is used on the other set where there is no issue with opening and closing). Was there a solution to Oscar’s issue?
        Cheers,
        Aaron

          Hi Aaron,

          if the adjustments are not the cause of this behaviour, it is possible that one of the dampers fails.
          In most cases a damper for AVENTOS can easily be replaced.
          I will get in touch with you directly to determine your country of residence and then forward it to the respective customer service department.

          Best regards

            Hi Matthias. I’m in the UK and have the same problem where the damping action has failed overnight on one of two door installations. Who should I contact to source replacement dampers please. Thanks for any guidance if further investigation is required.

            Hi Matthias,
            I have the same issue as those 2 guys above.
            One of my AVENTOS lifting doors is closing without any breaking and making a big slam on the cabinet frame.
            Where can I buy a new damper and is it difficult to replace it?
            Thank you in advance,
            Dave

    Hello,

    I’m having an issue with Aventos HF. The doors are not lifting high enough. They cabinet hinges are the required 134° hinges but they seem to get stuck at about 110°. Each door is 1064mm wide x 446mm high.
    Any help would be greatly apprecitated!

      Dear Dylan,

      we recommend using an unsprung 120° hinge with AVENTOS HF. Wrong assembly positions of all parts, the length of the telescopic lever as well as a wrong hinge can have an effect on the opening angle.
      Accordingly it is necessary to check all this in order to find out what could be the cause of the issue.
      If you need assistance with that, either the company who has built the cabinet for you, or our local customer service (contact found here: http://www.blum.com/contact) will troubleshoot the issue with you.

      Best regards
      Matthias

    I have a couple kitchen cabinets that use the Aventos HK hinge. They no longer stop gently, but slam. Can these be adjusted, if so, how. If not, what steps would advise me to take to find a solution.

    Thank you

    Hello,
    We received replacement Aventos lift systems, because three of ours were slamming shut and would not adjust. Thank you. However, despite going out and searching the entire city to finally find a Blum specific screw driver (pozidrive #2) we are still unable to adjust the system, so we are afraid to install them, for fear that the new hinges will be stuck open.
    This is causing us a great deal of frustration as we are still living with the defective hinges that are slamming shut (and potentially very dangerous to our three children). Can you please advise ASAP.
    Thank you,
    Amy

      Hi Amy,
      perhaps it would be best if one of our technical specialists would assist you with the adjustment.
      They will clarify if the lift mechanism is the proper one (in terms of its strength) and guide you through the whole process.

      Best regards

    I seem to be having the same problem with my aventos mechanism. The cupboard closes violently, having already tried adjusting it without any change.

    We have the 20k2701-05 mechanisms. The soft close stopped working so I tried adjusting using a PZ 2 driver. The door closes a little softer but will not stay up after it travels 1/4 of the way down.

    We are in Italy but are American so we need further instructions in English.

    Thank you,

    Jerry

    Hi we seem to have the opposite of the problems everyone else has here. We have installed a pair of 20Fx80x, which soft closes ok, but no matter the weight adjustments on both arms, the doors just swings up to full height without slowing down. This is difficult as we can’t reach to stop it from banging the ceiling nor pull it back down. Any help in Australia?

      Hi Tim,
      this is most probably because the lift mechanism in use is too strong for your cabinet door.
      If adjusting the spring tension does not help, you’ll most likely have to replace the lift mechanism and use one which is suitable for your door weight.
      As Andrea mentioned, our tech support team will assist you with finding a solution.

      Best regards
      Matthias
