Sliding Glass Door Digital Door Lock Deadbolt - In regards to maintaining your home in tip-top shape, nothing can be more annoying than a sliding glass door that will not slide. In the end, what is the reason of having an attractive glass door that leads out to a picturesque backyard if the darn thing takes three NFL linebackers to slide it open?
The number 1 reason why your sliding glass door will not side is because too much dirt and debris have clogged up the course of your door panel and the wheels. This really is not a hard fix, but because sliding glass doors are quite heavy, it's best if you have another person present to help you. The first step would be to analyze how your sliding glass door is fixed to the track.
You can closely analyze the wheels along with the track once the door is on its side. Most often, you'll find the wheels are filled with debris and soot, and the trail can be probably very filthy. Use compressed air and needle tip pliers, to clean the wheels. Be careful to pull every last hair 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 procedure.
While you are at it, clean up all the "mating-edges" of the door. This really is where the sliding door and some other surface of the door frame meet. A general rule of thumb is to just wipe down anything that appears filthy. Remember, even whenever dirt is not necessarily on the track itself, it may fall to the trail causing your door to need another wipe down.
