Door squeaks occur when you open or close a door. The source of its problem is most likely the hinges holding it onto the door frame. The squeaking results from friction that is placed on the hinge as the door is moved back and forth, so your task is focused on reducing the amount of friction the hinge undergoes. Fortunately, you can fix this issue with a few simple tools and a willing helper.
6 Never spray your lockset with silicone spray or penetrating oil. It can cause it to gum up.
Repeat Steps 1 to 3 with the bottom door hinge. If the squeaking is still occurring, proceed to Step 5. If the squeaking is no longer present, tap the hinge pins back into the door hinges with some light taps from the hammer. Have your helper support the door and tap the pin back into the bottom hinge first, followed by the top pin.
Shake the can of penetrating oil and insert the small tube included with the oil into the spray nozzle. Press down on the spray nozzle to apply the oil to the hinge pin and the inside of the hinge. Wipe any excess oil away with the dry cloth. Move the door carefully back and forth to lubricate the hinge. Take notice of whether or not the squeaking has stopped.
Spray the hinge pins, hinge and hinge holder with a light coating of silicone spray. Replace the hinge pins by putting them back into their correct slot and tapping lightly with a hammer until each one is back in the door.
