Internal Doors With Frosted Glass Panels - As it pertains to keeping your house in tip-top condition, nothing can be more annoying than the usual sliding glass door that will not slide. After all, what is the reason of getting a lovely glass door that leads out to a picturesque backyard when the darn thing takes three NFL linebackers to slide it open?
The number 1 reason your sliding glass door will not side is because too much dirt and debris have clogged up the path of your door panel and the wheels. This really is not a hard fix, but because sliding glass doors are very heavy, it is best if you've got another person present to help you.
After the door is on its side, you can carefully analyze the track and the wheels. Most commonly, you'll find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and the course is, in addition, probably quite dirty. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle point pliers. Take care to pull every last hair from the wheel bearings.
While you're at it, clean up all the "mating-borders" of the door. This is where the sliding door meets with some other surface of the door frame. A general rule of thumb would be to simply wipe down anything that seems filthy. Don't forget, even if the dirt is not always on the course itself, it may fall to the trail causing your door to need another wipe down.
