Phantom Pocket Screen Door - Just a few months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. This is the very first time I'd ran into this kind of scenario and was definitely confused. I got a torch and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had a hard time discovering the issue but when I did it was apparent.
There is no way to reach the screw as it had been at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing.
As a way to repair the pocket door issue, I had been going to 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 could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to help make the repair whole. Then I use some fast setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to fix the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall correctly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles falling and eventually are left shut, never to be utilized again. Painting the doors over and over again can in fact increase the thickness of the door or the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the home over long periods of time.
