Stained Glass Window Above Front Door - As it pertains to maintaining your house in tip-top shape, nothing can be more annoying than the usual sliding glass door that won't slide. So having experienced such sliding glass door angst, I decided to write this post to advise you of the number 1 reason your sliding glass door won't slide - and what you can do about it!
The number 1 reason your sliding glass door won't side is because too much soil and debris have clogged the wheels and the course of your door panel up. That is not a difficult fix, but it's best if you've got another person present to assist you because sliding glass doors are quite heavy.
It is possible to carefully analyze the track and the wheels after the door is on its side. Mostly, you will find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and the trail is also likely very grimy. Use compressed air and needle tip pliers to clean the wheels. Be careful to pull every last hair out of the wheel bearings. It's wise to be diligent in this step, and therefore you don't have to make a habit of this procedure.
While you're at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the doorway. This is where the sliding door and every other surface of the door frame meet. A rule of thumb of thumb is to just wipe down anything that seems filthy. Remember, even if the soil is just not always on the course itself, it can eventually fall to the course causing your door to demand another wipe down.
