Vigilant Wood Stove Glass Doors - When it comes to keeping your home in tip top shape, nothing can be more annoying than the usual sliding glass door that won't slide. After all, what's the reason of getting a lovely glass door that leads out to some scenic backyard when the darn thing requires three NFL linebackers to slide it open?
The number 1 reason your sliding glass door won't side is because too much dirt and debris have clogged up the path of your door panel and the wheels. That is not a hard fix, but it is best if you have another person present to help you because most sliding glass doors are very heavy. Step one would be to analyze how your sliding glass door is fixed to the trail.
You are able to closely analyze the track as well as the wheels, when the door is on its side. Most commonly, you will find the wheels are full of debris and soot, and also the trail is also likely very dirty. Needle point and use compressed air pliers, to clean the wheels. Be careful to pull every last hair out from the wheel bearings.
While you are at it, clean up all the "mating-borders" of the doorway. This is where the sliding door meets with every other surface of the door frame. A general rule of thumb is to simply wipe down anything that appears dirty. Remember, even whenever dirt isn't always on the trail itself, it may fall to the track causing your door to demand another wipe down.
