Our 2014 does the same thing. Its not a quality defect. Remember you are trying to cram a whole house into 35'.

I would say mine is the same also. You just have to be careful not to open the door to fast and damage it.

I am in awe that fr knew of this flaw and did not correct it. All we are asking is for fr to pay for us to have this cupboard door fix so it opens properly

I don't believe with the curent layout and design, there is any fix that would be helpful. We too put a felt dot (used for chair legs) on the edge of the moulding to absorb the hit and prevent damage to the trim and the door.

We have a Hemisphere 263RL and our cupboard door opens to 90 degrees at the slide as well. I don't think this is a warranty issue. It is a design issue. As someone else said, there is only so much you can fit in such a space. I am glad for the extra storage space our cabinet provides and put canned goods in it, where there is no need to open it wider.

There is a fix
There is no way you would purchase a house and have a cupboard door like this

I'm curious to see if for some reason your cabinet door isn't opening like the rest of ours.
Can you post a pic of it open?

Mine opens to 60 degrees before making contact with the crown molding at the top of the slide. I never noticed an issue until now. It seems to be the nature of packing a lot into a small space.

I totally agree. There are always going to be crazy "why did they do it that way " things that don't make sence

I found a pic of mine open. If you look close my cabinet door isn't all the way against the slide out. But when it is it's not difficult to get things in and out of the cabinet.
