I have a 4-panel door with the old hinges (door slips down onto hinge pin). The door will not stay in the open position. I suspect that the door is mounted incorrectly, or door frame is crooked. Would I move the position of the top hinge, where it is screwed into the frame? If so, in what direction? Or put some substance between the hinge and hinge pin to increase friction?

If the door wants to close, that means the door is tilted in. You would have to move the top hinge out. You could also move the bottom hinge in a bit

I'll have to give that a try. I'll probably get only 1 chance to do it right. Can't make too many holes in the door frame behind the hinge.
