Blum Pocket Door Set - Just a couple months ago I went over to fix a pocket door that was closing at a strange angle. This was the very first time I had ran into this type of situation and was definitely confused. I got a torch and started looking in the pocket door frame. I had trouble finding the issue but when I did it was apparent.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was slipping shut it works perfectly but when you went to open it. There was not any solution because it was at that very back of the pocket door frame close to the framing, to attain the screw.
As a way to fix the pocket door issue, I had been going to need to remove an excellent sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the sole thing I could think of and would require a simple wall patch and some paint to really make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen out from the pocket door track. I then use some quick setting drywall plaster and some fiberglass drywall tape to mend the wall. This took another hour to finish the drywall properly.
Some pocket door troubles are a little easier to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have troubles sliding and eventually are left shut, never to be used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually add to the thickness of the door or the door to swell preventing it from opening properly can be also caused by excessive moisture in the house over long amounts of time.
