Sliding Glass Doors‏

Question: One of my sliding glass doors is very difficult to open and close.

Answer: Sliding glass doors are not suspended in the same manner as sliding closet doors.

They ride on a set of wheels on a bottom track. To remove the door to inspect the wheels, lift-up on the door and it should rise far enough to have the wheels leave the track and the bottom swing in. Sliding glass doors are very heavy, so be careful. Clean out the track with a brush and vacuum. Inspect the wheels and make sure they spin. There is an adjustment for the wheels a screw on each side of the door that will raise and lower them.
