Self Closing Bedroom Drawer

Hi all,

I have a slight problem. I cannot get my bedroom dresser drawer to close. It goes in up to a couple inches.

There has got to be a catch or something there, right? I have had no problems with it until earlier today. I did pull the drawer out probably all the way and now I can't get it to close. I have tried to find a catch or something to no avail.

Does anybody know how to close it? Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

It sounds like when you opened it all the way, it got derailed off the drawer glides. Do you notice it sitting askew in the opening? Try to get it back on track.

Either that or something is stuck behind it.

Are you able to release the side rails and remove the drawer completely?

Look carefully, and you should see some small arms (sometimes plastic) that are spring release from a clip on the metal side rails of the drawer itself....which all has to align with the rails mounted inside the cavity of the drawer.

That's what I was thinking. There may be like a clip/lever on the track that needs to be opened. Recently put a file cabinet together with this set-up.

On the opposite side you need to lift on the small plastic lever. At least on my drawers you do.

I have tried to push it down, I have tried to push it up. I can only hold onto it until it goes into the metal part I can't get into. Here is what it looks like..

Well, I was going to show you a picture, but, I guess I don't know how to upload one here.

Yes, it is sitting askew. There is nothing behind it. Trying to get it back on track.
