Pictures Of Pantry Pocket Doors - Just a few months ago I went over to fix 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 undoubtedly confused. I began looking inside the pocket door frame and got a torch. I had trouble discovering the problem but when I did it was obvious.
The base of the door would stick out about an inch and a half passed the door jam, as the pocket door was skidding closed it would work perfectly but when you went to open it. The trouble turned out to function as the track was missing a screw in the back and as the door slid back into the framework the tracking would hang down at an angle from the weight of the doorway. There was not any way to attain the screw as it had been at that back of the pocket door frame close to the framing itself.
As a way to repair the pocket door trouble, I was going to have to remove a good sized area of the plastered wall at the upper right hand corner of the pocket door frame. This was the only thing I could think of and would require a wall patch that is simple and some paint to help make the repair complete. This job took me about one hour to cut the hole and replaced the screw that had fallen from the pocket door path. 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 correctly.
Some pocket door problems are a little more easy to fix than this one. Most pocket doors seemed to have problems sliding and eventually are left closed, never to be properly used again. Painting the doors over and over again can actually increase the depth of the door or excessive moisture in the house over long periods of time can also cause the doorway to swell preventing it from opening correctly.
