How to Adjust Your Mirrored Closet Doors

Stop fighting your sliding doors!

adjust Your Mirrored Closet DoorsWell-used mirrored closet doors sometimes need adjusting. Often, you can make the adjustment yourself with just a screwdriver.

Most sliding doors have a mechanism known as a “wheelhouse” at either the bottom or top of the frame. Adjust the screw in the mechanism until the rollers come in full contact with the track. Your mirrored door will begin to slide properly again.

If your doors have become untracked, you’ll have to loosen the screw, lift up the door, and gently place it back in the track. Mirrored doors are heavier than typical hollow-core doors, so this job may take two people.

Preventive maintenance cuts down the need for adjustments. Remove pet hair, dirt or other debris by wiping the track with a damp cloth every so often. Periodically vacuuming the track helps, too.

Sometimes mirrored closet sliding doors need more than a simple adjustment. Rollers on closet doors that are opened and closed many times a day can wear down or even break.

In those cases, you need to replace the roller. It’s a more complicated fix than an adjustment because the doors have to be removed. We recommend you hire a sliding door contractor. The professional will have the type of rollers you need and the tools to do the job right.

The most frequent cause of balky sliding doors is improper installation. If you are renovating or building new, hiring a contractor to install sliding doors is a good idea. The doors will be fit and attached within the door frame correctly.
