Hi thanks for the question.

When you leave the door open at half mast it wont close . Or is it the bottom of the door that wont close.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
half mast the door doesn't move; give it a slight push and it closes until there is about a 1" gap

(not sure what you mean by bottom of the door that won't close)
Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.

At the door hinge pin at the bottom does it look like a plastic broken piece.

Its part of the bottom hinge If its worn it will do that to the door.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
do i need to take the door off of the hinge to see the plastic piece? if its broken then replacing will fix the problem?
Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.


This is the piece that could be broken and another can see the parts bend down and look at the bottom pin.
