Johnson 100 Series Pocket Door Track - Just a couple of months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a peculiar angle. It was the very first time I had ran into this type of situation and was definitely lost. I got a flashlight and began looking inside the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was noticeable.
The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back to the frame the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the door and the track was missing a screw in the very rear. There is not any strategy because it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself, to attain the screw.
It was the only thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to help make the repair whole. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to repair the wall. This took another hour in order to complete the drywall properly.
Some pocket door difficulties are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors appeared to have difficulties falling and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long amounts of time can also make the door to swell preventing it from opening properly.
