Johnson Hardware Pocket Door - Just a couple of months back I went over to repair a pocket door that was shutting at a strange angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this kind of situation and was definitely lost. I got a torch and began looking within the pocket door frame. I had a hard time finding the problem but when I did it was evident.
The difficulty turned out to be as the door slid back to the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle in the weight of the doorway and the course was missing a screw in the back that was very. There is no method since it was at that back of the pocket door frame near the framing, to achieve the screw.
This was the only thing I would require a wall patch that is simple and could think of plus some paint to help 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 quick setting drywall plaster plus some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door issues are a little more easy to repair than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have issues sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time can also make the doorway to swell preventing it from opening properly.
