Default New hinges, old cabinets problem

I recently replaced my cabinet hinges with new Amerock inset face frame hinges. They are the same size and have the same screw configuration, but after installation, three of the doors swing open and make a squawking noise when I try to shut them. The doors are swinging clear of the frame, and a level shows they are even. The old cabinets were crappily put together, and the fault might be in the original screw hole placement, but if I can fix this without having to patch the old holes and redrilling, it would be great.
Thanks for any help you might be able to give!
