Q: I have an Arrow door closer and it seems to have stopped working. i.e the door now slams shut. Could you call me to advise how to fix?

A: Once door closers have lost hydraulic pressure, they slam the door and unfortunately can’t be fixed.  Best course of action is replace with a new door closer.

Help! Our door closer slams the door

November 24, 2010 by · Comments Off on Help! Our door closer slams the door 

…My freeholder has just fitted a door closer at my request as the main door slams when people close it. However, the one they have fitted has not remedied the problem as the door needs to be closed very gently to eliminate the slam (and rattle of glass in the door).  Do you have a door closer which can move extremely slowly but also push a door closed??
If it is a hydraulic door closer they’ve fitted, it should have some adjustability on the closing speed.  Basically you want to slow down the speed and reduce, or turn off, the latching action.  Most door closers should offer this adjustability.  Our Geze TS4000 video shows the adjustment of this high use, heavy duty, fully adjustable door closer, which might give your fitter some assistance.  Any of the Geze door closers from TS1500 up (depending upon the width of your door) should give you a good result.

How do I stop the door closer slamming the door?

Q: (from Costa) I have a door fitted with a Geze TS4000E door closer and I dont know how to perform the final slam adjustment. The door is shutting perfectly until the last 10 degrees or so when it just lets go and slams LOUD!  I have turned down the closing force and increased the resistance but as soon as it gets to that crucial 10 degree point it just lets go.  PLEASE HELP!
A: The latching adjustment (last 10° of the close) for a Geze TS4000E is set by changing the position of the arm, refer to the fitting instructions, or this quick sketch summarising the information may help:-
