Ideas To Adjust French Sliding Doors
French sliding doors allow natural sunlight in the home and provide unobstructed access to your patio or terrace. Through daily use, the sliding door can not slide freely as it once did. The sliding door may also be non-latching securely, leaving an excessive amount of play when the latch is in the locked position. Before considering the cost of replacing the sliding door, make some minor adjustments and maybe the door will work like new again.
Vacuum the lower door rail with the sliding door closed. Then, open the sliding door to vacuum the other half of the lower track. Look for the adjustment covers that hide the adjustment screws of the rollers. The covers will be in the inner lower frame towards each end of the door. Some covers are on the edge of the door at both ends towards the bottom.

Insert a flat screwdriver into the slot in the cover and turn the cover to the left to remove it from the door. Some covers will open out by inserting the screwdriver between the lid and the door frame. Turn the adjustment screws of the roller on the left with the screwdriver to lower the door. Test the operation of the door to see if it glides smoothly. If you have to lift the door, lift the edge of the door slightly, then turn the adjusting screw to the right.
