36 Pocket Door Frame Set - Just a few months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a bizarre angle. This is the first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was undoubtedly lost. I started looking inside the pocket door frame and got a flashlight. I had difficulty discovering the problem but when I did it was clear.
The problem turned out to function as the track was missing a screw in the back so that as the door slid back to the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway. There is no way as it was at that very back of the pocket door frame near the framing itself to achieve the screw.
As a way to correct the pocket door problem, I would have to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the only thing I would require a simple wall patch and could think of plus some paint to make the repair complete. This job took me to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out of the pocket door path. I then use some fast setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to repair the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues falling and eventually are left shut, never to be used 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 may also make the doorway to swell keeping it from opening correctly.
