A-S NYC 7873 glass door roller

A home owner from Oregon says:
I need a roller and housing for my sliding glass door. I saw another person with the same roller as mine from a 2013 post on here. I hope you can find one for me. I hate to scrap out a perfectly good door just because I can't find the roller. Unlike the 2013 post, the measurement on the housing is not 3/8" it's 7/16". The lower part of the door where you slide in the roller and housing piece is 1/2" wide, allowing only 1/16 of an inch gap to slide it into.

The bearing roller is 1-1/2". Overall housing length including 3/8' tab/leg on opposite side of printed part number is 2-9/16". Height of housing is 1-1/2".

the adjuster screw hole center on the end of the housing is 1/2"down from the top of the roller side/(Printed side up). I thank you for your help.

Good morning! I'm not sure what post it is you're referring to, exactly. We had many thousands of posts in 2013. That said, I think I can still help.

The part in your picture is actually only the inside portion of a complete roller assembly. There should be an outer housing, perhaps still installed in the door. Since this is Allen Stevens, though, and since you have a 1-1/2" wheel, you could consider our 81-278 patio door roller. You may want to remove your outer housing just to confirm that this could work.

To remove and install the new roller, you will need to remove the sliding door and the bottom door rail. Unscrew the two bottom frame screws (1/4-20 machine thread) and use a block of wood and hammer to carefully remove the bottom door rail. You will see on the inside channel where the glass was that there is another screw (10-32 machine thread) that holds the top of the roller housing to the door.
