If your sliding glass door is over 10 years oldYou may notice that they are getting harder and harder to slide on.This problem is more common in aluminum frame double pane doors.The reason is that double glass makes the door heavier,But many aluminum units do not use stainless steel rollers.So,in many cases,The rollers get rusty moisture and they start binding.To replace the roller,You must remove the sliding panel from the hole.In most cases,The fixed panel must be removed in order for the sliding panel to come out.There is an easy way to determine if your fixed panel is coming out as well.If the slider is on the internal track and the fixed panel is on the external track,You have to delete two panels,Because the slider will only come out of the outside.There is a lip at the bottom of the track in your house.The lips won't let the water in.Unfortunately,The lip is too high to push the sliding board up and down.So,You have to remove the fixed panel firstThen lift and swing the slider from the outside.If you're one of the few people with sliders outside,Then you can remove the fixed panel without your slider.But,Let's say you need to delete the fixed panel first.Here's what you did:If you have a screen door that removes you.There will be two rollers at the bottom of the screen door.Lift one end of the door frame with one hand while using a flat screwdriver to remove the roller from the track.In doing so on both sides,Then take out the screen door and put it aside.Now,Looking for the metal sheet on the bottom track, from the bottom corner of the fixed panel all the way through the bottom of the side card cloth with door lock hardware.If your door is really old, it may be lost.If you have one,You can dig it out of the track.It's snapped up in place, even if it looks like it's part of the track.Once you remove that pieceYou want to see that the fixed panel inside the house is blocked against the wall.Look for screws to fix the frame to jam.They usually have a corner close to the top and bottom,Close to the center.Remove these screws and place them where you won't lose them.Now,You should be able to plug the fixed panel from the side.There is a good chance that it will get stuck.If it is,Grab the center track near the bottom and go high all you can.If you think the panel is up,Pull it back.Do this several times,Then try to pull it out of the side jam again.This usually relaxes it enough to pull it out.If it still won't come out,You will have to put a fixed panel frame and side jam and pry between a thin screwdriver, while the assistant pulls the panel away from jam.Once you get its side jam,Grab the side rails of the fixed panel and have an assistant to grab the other rails.Lift the panel up to the top track and swing the bottom from the bottom track.Remove the panel from the top track and put it aside with the shield door.Now,You can try to lift the slider up and up,Just like the fixed panel you use.If the slider does not clear the bottom track,There are a few things you need to do.First,See if the old roller stands out from the bottom and prevents the door from coming out,Or, if the actual bottom of the door frame is hitting the track.In almost all casesIt will be the old roller.But,If the opening is 8' wide,Sometimes the wood that goes through the opening is already drooping enough to hold it tight in the center of the opening.If it's a roller,You need to adjust their doors along the way.Find a hole in the bottom and you can get the Phillips screwdriver and find the adjustment screw.Then turn the screw counter-clockwise and you can.Both sides of this,Then try to cite the door.If you're still stuckAsk your assistant to lift one side and pull out while you try to spy on the frame and roll on the track.If you get one side,Have your helper hold his or her feet to prevent it from going back while the other side of his or her lift is free for you pry.Once you get the slider outAlmost all the rollers are held in place by the same screws, putting the frame corners together.So,You need to set the panel on one side,Remove the screws in the corner,Flip the panel,Remove the screw in the other corner.Now,You can take a wooden handle of plasticine or hammer,And click on the frame at the bottom of the glass.This will give you access to your rollers.Take a closer look at how they plug into the door frame.In fact,It's a good idea to just remove the new one with one roller that takes you to match.Then,When you get home,You can use the rollers that are still being placed as a guide for installing the new rollers.A Place Like Home Depot.Lowes,And Ace Hardware carrying about 80-There are 90% rollers.So,You should be able to find them.However,Let's say it's not your lucky day.You can't find your rollers anywhere.You have to order them.Bring the drum to your local glass shop.If you're luckyThey will have their stock.If not,They can order rollersBut you won't get it in a week.Don't panic.Go home and click on the bottom frame on the facade board,But leave the corner screw behind.You can even leave the roller you deleted.Hold the door back,Install the fixed panel but don't snap the part at the bottom back,Do not install the screws inside.Then,From the house,Lift the slider and pull it to close.You don't want to drag the roller if you leave it.It will scrape the track at the bottom.Just hold it up enough to reduce the pressure,Close and lock it.When your new Roller comes in,Get everything back and install the new rollers.Adjust the new roller all the way before returning the door.That way,The new roller will not interfere with where you bring it back.Adjust the new roller down until the door slides well and locks.You want to make sure there is an equal gap at the top and bottom when the door is blocked about inches from close to side.You can adjust the roller to make this size even.If you can do the job for $50 or $60, including parts, by a professional,It may be worth hiring someone to do it.But,In areas with a large population, such as Los Angeles,Usually only $100 of labor is paid.Then they marked the cost of the drum,You may be able to do a job for $130 and you can do it yourself for about $20.I'm going to tell you next week how to fix your broken or defective window glass.
