You shouldn't have to muscle a sliding patio door to get it to glide along its track. A slider should move easily enough for you to open it with one hand while balancing a round of drinks in the other. If you have a balky patio door or sliding screen that moves only when you jiggle it along the track, it's easy to get things rolling again with a quick tune-up.
Sometimes a sliding door can partially jump off the track if it gets a bump from opening or closing it too hard. On aluminium sliding doors it can be difficult to see if the rollers are on the track. The roller will usually be located about 2 to 3 inches from each edge of the door.
