When you open the cupboard door you should see that the hinges have two screws on the
horizontal arm that fixes to the side wall bracket. The screw nearest to the door
(front screw) is the one that makes the changes to the angle which the door swings.

You might have to loosen the back screw slightly to allow the front screw to move the
move the door to the desired position and not be to compressed that it pops right
through the side wall of the cupboard.

The adjustments are most small amounts at a time, so, if you're not used to them, they
can take a little patience to get them perfect.

To allow the door to drop a little you undo the front screw on the bottom hinge and
tighten the front screw on the top hinge. Vice Versa if you need the door to rise a
little.

All that happens is the front screw literally gets longer or shorter into the hinge
and makes the hinge wider or narrower. This in turn makes the door rise and fall as
it opens and closes.

Make sure, after every adjustment, that you check both screws are tight again because
the adjustment of getting wider and narrower can loosen them off.
