User access issue

The user complained that he was unable to access 2 out of 20 databases on one of the servers. I checked the user permissions and found that the only difference between the user permissions on those two databases and the rest of them was that the default schema listed was DOMAIN\user1 instead of dbo. Another thing was that in Owned Schemas section the schema DOMAIN\user1 was selected for those two databases in question, all other databases do not even have DOMAIN\user1 listed under schemas.
I did change the default schema to dbo, but I do not know how to remove DOMAIN\user1 schema from the list or uncheck it

Can someone help me fix this issue?

You should just be able to execute the following command from SSMS:
DROP SCHEMA 'DOMAIN\user1'

Open in new window

Although it will error if the schema owns any objects - in which case you will have to change the owner of all of the objects and then drop again.

It would be wise to backup your database before doing this as well :)
