Clean the track and wheels

Centor Sliding DoorsSweeping and vacuuming can clean the debris from the track but if you demount the panels, then you can clean and lubricate wheels / rollers. Check if there is any dirt stuck to the wheel / rollers and get rid of it. Prevention is better than cure and a regular check will stop your wheels and rollers having a buildup or dirt and grot had can mark or destroy your rollers.

Replace broken wheels

Does the door bumps along the track, or is it hard to move rather than the smooth glide of when the door was new? One of the wheels might be broken. Replace it immediately to prevent further damage. You can do it on yourself if you are handy or call in a professional handy man to do it for you.

Check the latch

Check the level of the latch to make sure it is still operating properly and that the sliding panel hasn’t moved over time.
