Default How to lubricate this door hinge?

The fire-rated door from my house to the garage is squeaking like crazy for months. I was going to use graphite or oil to fix the squeak, and then realized that I don't if there's a pin to remove. Photos he

I'm not familiar with this hinge, it's name, or how to lubricate.
Many thanks for your advice.
Theodore.

Try a few drops of sewing machine oil.

I'd try a few drops of oil on the top and see if it seeps down. You
could try 3 in 1 ir even a shot of WD40 if you have it. Try a little at
the joints too.

Won't take much to stop the squeak.

Holycow! It's a self-closing hinge?! I never knew that. None of the pins were ever installed in it. Thank you all very much for the insight and the advice on how to stop the squeak.

I guess it's needed oiling for quite some time!

I think it's a safety regulation ? to have the door between the
garage and living quarters installed with springed hinges -
- carbon monoxide donchya know.

Your original post says it's a new hinge. You also wrote there that the
other new hinge attached to the same door doesn't squeak. Last year I
had all 3 of mine replaced because after 30 years, the spring tension
was insufficient to fully close the door. However, neither the old ones
nor any of the new ones squeak. They shouldn't squeak. Your squeaking
hinge is defective. You're in for chronic, periodic squeaking even if
you succeed in eliminating the squeak at this time. I'd remove it,
return it, and insist on a free replacement.

Agreed. Either sewing machine oil or 3 in 1 at the top of the hinge should gradually fix the problem.
