Automatic Door Pocket Screen - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was shutting in a peculiar angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this sort of situation and was undoubtedly lost. I got a flashlight and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had a hard time finding the problem but when I did it was evident.
The bottom of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was slipping shut it would work flawlessly but when you went to open it. The issue turned out to be as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the door and the track was missing a screw in the back that was very. There was no way to reach the screw as it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing.
To be able to fix the pocket door issue, I was really going to need to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall in the upper right-hand corner of the pocket door frame. This is the only thing I really could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to really make the repair whole. I then use some fiberglass drywall tape and some quick setting drywall plaster to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems falling and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time can also cause the door to swell keeping it from opening properly.
