Changing Oven Door Glass - As it pertains to keeping your house in tip top shape, nothing can be more annoying than a sliding glass door that will not slide.
The number 1 reason why your sliding glass door will not side is because too much soil and debris have clogged the path of your door panel and the wheels up. That is not a difficult fix, but it is best if you've got another person present to assist you because most sliding glass doors are quite heavy.
You can carefully examine the wheels as well as the track once the door is on its side. Most often, you will find the wheels are filled with soot and debris, and also the course can be probably really filthy. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle tip pliers. Be careful to pull every last hair out from the wheel bearings. It's wise to be diligent in this measure, which means you do not have to make a habit of this process.
While you are at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the door. This is where the sliding door and every other surface of the door frame meet. A general rule of thumb is to just wipe down anything that looks filthy. Remember, even if the soil isn't always on the trail itself, it can fall to the track causing your door to demand another wipe down.
