Years of dirt, exposure to the elements and hard use can turn sliding doors into sticking doors. We will give you some tips on how to repair your sliding door and make it run like new.
Start with a good cleaning. Scrub caked dirt and grime out of the track with a stiff brush and soapy water. If the door still does not slide smoothly, the rollers under the door either need adjusting or are shot.
Locate the two adjusting screws at the bottom of the door (on the face or edge of the door) and pry off the trim caps that cover the screws. If one side looks lower, raise it until the door looks even on the track. If the door still sticks, turn both screws a quarter turn to raise the whole door. Then slide the door just short of the jamb and be sure the gap is even.
If the door still does not glide smoothly, you will have to remove the door and examine the rollers. Get help for this—the door is heavy! Unscrew the stop molding on the inside of the jamb. Be sure to hold the door in place once the stop is removed—if you forget and walk away for a moment, the door will fall in, requiring a much bigger repair! Tilt the door back and set it on sawhorses. Inspect the rollers for problems. If they are full of dirt and debris, give them a good cleaning and a few drops of lubricant and see if they spin freely. However, if the rollers are worn, cracked or bent, remove them and replace them with a new pair.
