The problem is probably related to the fact you have a mobile home.

Reason Isay this is that most door swing problems are a result of not being hung plumb. It is common for a mobile to have settled so the whole home is slightly off kilter. That may also be causing the cabinet door jamming. Some cab hinges have adjustments and others take other kinds of tweaking.

First Q for you is to find out if the home oveall needs releveling. Otherwise, you are treating the symptom and not the problem.

Excellence is its own reward!
