    Icon5 Closet Door Repair

    The original bedroom closet had been turned into a half bath, with the sliding doors left in place. When trying to slide the doors, one of them keeps falling off the track. While it happens at various places along the track, there are a couple of spots where it happens without fail. I can find no bends, breaks, etc., in the track. From what I can see without having yet removed the doors completely, the rollers appear good. Should my first plan of attack be to change out the rollers, or the track? Or should I just replace both and know that everything is fine?

    First I would try installing a floor guide to keep the doors from swinging.

    It's already got the floor guide, but it does keep the doors from swinging.

    Wrong size roller guides for the track?

    Rollers installed on the wrong door? IIRC the rollers are designed for an inside and outside door.

    Rollers are holding the door too high and when pushing the door, the other end drags, lifting the other side of the door?

    Hard to say w/o being able to see the door and track.

    While those are all issues for me to look at, until the last few days this has happened only once or twice in the 12 years I've been here. Now it's an every time the door is used occurrence. That's what makes me think one of the components has gone bad.

    Another thing for my ever-growing honey-do list.

    Re: Closet Door Repair

    Could there be accumulated junk up on the track that the roller is ramping up on, allowing it to easily come off?

    That's something I had never given thought to. Have to check that out when I get home from my day at the hospital. That's the nice thing about volunteering at the Medical Office Building. I get to tell people where to go and the more I do it the better job I'm doing.

    Re: Closet Door Repair

    For $13 I bought the door kit. Removing the track and guides, and installing the new, was a breeze... and fun to play with tools again. Adjusting the doors took almost as much time as all the rest of the work. The guide wasn't tall enough to catch, so I bought a guide kit with risers. That should go in tomorrow and the job is done. The doors work like a charm!
