In Response To: sliding patio door won't slide (Dan Kirkness)

There may be a few things that you could try. First see if there is some play in the door. It should have a slight bit of play up and down in the door not enough to make it come out of it's tracks but just enough that it slides well if there is no play adjust the wheel settings if that don't fix it try a white litheum grease, it will usually last longer than plain silicon grease. Second try to take the door off the tracks and clean the wheels. if that don't fix it, replace the wheels they are usually replaceable. As you take the screen off give the track a good cleaning as they can usually use it. that is not my real e-mail addy or name but i am a good friend of dons so please don't be mad cause i don't like to give out my info ok..
