How to fix a sliding screen door


Step 1. You canít remove the screen door until you release the tension on the roller wheels. Back off the adjustment screws, then lift the door out of the channel that holds it captive.

 

Step 2. Remove the door rollers using a screwdriver. Sometimes these rollers can just be pried out. Other times youíll have to remove a small screw.

 

Step 3. Clean the rollers with mineral spirits and an old paint brush. Once all the dirt and grime is removed, dry the rollers and lubricate them with light oil.

 

Step 4. Pry up one corner of the old spline and then gently pull it out of the screen channel. If this plastic spline is still soft and flexible, it can be reused for the new screen.
