Gorell patio door roller identification

A home owner from VA says:

I have a two panel (one fixed, one sliding) Gorell Patio door - I'm told they are out of business. It was installed in 2005 and I have been experiencing a problem with one of the roller sets (it has two, "two wheel tandem" rollers). When I removed the sticky one for inspection and cleaning, it appears most like your 81-018/81-149 roller set.

I do not want to remove the door again until I have the new part and was wondering if it would be safe to assume all these manufacturers of doors use fairly standard hardware. The resemblance of my part (albeit not stainless like the -149) to your pictures is enough to make me think the risk is worth taking, but I wanted to ask.

Very respectfully,

Good afternoon and thanks for posting. Patio door rollers are not standard. While some patio door manufacturers shared similar style rollers, we still recommend matching the measurements of your existing roller to the measurements in our product pictures.

Take some pictures and upload them here if you would like our recommendation. Unfortunately, without pictures we are not able to recommend which roller you need for your Gorell patio door.

Also, next time you remove your door, check your patio door track for damage. A damaged track can wear out a patio door roller pretty quickly.
