How to do a Sliding Door Roller Replacement

If the door for your sliding patio or pocket door is broken, you might easily fix it. All you need is a screwdriver and some basic manual skills and strength to do it right.

To handle your sliding door roller replacement, first find the screws at the bottom of your door. On most doors, you will find a screw sitting above the other. Just turn the screw in the lower part of the door counterclockwise. That should place the door lower and the rollers higher.

Then, take out the door. If the door is too big, it is best to do it with help. Doing it alone can be dangerous, and it is better not to risk your integrity. Once the door is off, you can unscrew the rollers quickly.

Some broken rollers can obstruct the screws, and it may not be as easy. In such cases, it is best to eliminate any broken piece before unscrewing. Be prepared with the set of new rollers for the change.

Place them at the same location and screw again. Then, put back the sliding door. Finally use the adjustment screws to make sure the door goes back to its place.

Additional Measures and other Problems

One common reason for damaged rollers is the lack of cleaning. Excessive dust can cause the rollers to work improperly. If the rollers are not broken or severely worn, then you might not need to change them. Only cleaning the system should be enough to restore it to its full functionality.
If you are not sure if you should change the rollers or just clean it, then it is best to call a specialist. We can help you decide the best course of action to get the best of your sliding door.
