When a Bifolding door begins to drag along at the bottom when attempting to open. There can be many different things that can cause this.
- The outer frame of the Bifolding door losing its shape and therefore causing the door to become misaligned.
- The hinges on the Bi-fold door loosening of breaking.
- The rollers being damaged, whether they are at the bottom of the doors or top hung.
This particular article deals specifically with problems caused by damaged or broken rollers. Because the rollers bear so much load any part of it can damage or break (including the wheels) without warning.
Bi-fold door top hung rollers
When repairing or replacing top hung rollers, they have to be removed out of the tracks usually by making a cut. In some cases the by folding doors are manufactured in a way that there is access to the top rollers but this is also dependent on the way the doors and the top track have been installed into the frame.
Bi-fold door bottom track rollers
