Electric Pocket Door Opener - Just a few months ago I went over to repair a pocket door that was closing in a peculiar angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly confused. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had a hard time discovering the problem but when I did it was obvious.
The trouble turned out to be the course was missing a screw in the back and as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door. There was not any strategy because it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself, to attain the screw.
This was the only thing I would require an easy wall patch and could think of and some paint to really make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door track. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little easier to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have problems sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact add to the thickness of the door or the door to swell keeping it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
