Question Tofteryd coffee table drawer won't close

Hi,

Assembled the attached coffee table several months ago.

TOFTERYD Coffee table - high-gloss white - IKEA

Now have a problem - one of the drawers now won't close fully. When pressing the drawer in, it pops out again.

Has anyone come across this?

Thanks,

Raj

Re: Tofteryd coffee table drawer won't close

Welcome to IKEAFANS, Raj.

I haven't assembled this piece in a while, but your problem may be as simple as having the drawer runners secured through the wrong holes - check your work against the instructions (Step 11, page 9), and make sure you used the correct holes.

Hi Chuck,

Many thanks for the reply.

I turned over the table with the intention of removing the drawers and checking the runners.

Upon doing so, tried the problem drawer and it was closing fine !

So it must have been something lodged that was preventing it from closing properly - so all ok now !

Thanks again and have a happy new year.

Raj
