Patio door roller, rusted in

A handy person from Ramrod Key FL says:
Guardian patio door with one fixed panel and 1 sliding panel. Purchased at HomeDepot.

Markings on glass:

ANS Z97 1 2004
SGoC 630 1/8UA
16 CFR 1201 II

I need the part number for the roller because it is rusted and I can not retract it up to get it out and I know I will have to do some serious damage to the roller to get it out and I would like to have the replacement so I can put it back the same day. Also, any helpful ideas on how to get the door off the track since I can not retract the rollers.

Thanks for posting! Based on those markings, I think these may be American Craftsman vinyl patio doors. Is that correct? If so, you may want to consider our 81-095. I cannot confirm if these will work for you without seeing your original, but it's a place to start.

As for how to remove the door, check out our guide below.

I'm reading a lot and I'm learning a lot, BUT no one tells you about not being able to get the 2 screws out of the frame , the 2 that, one adjusts the rollers, the other holds the roller frame ?

one of them is so tight it does not turn ? The other one highest one is now in bad shape, meaning the Phillips head is striped and of corse then you can not turn it out. HELP.

the glass says it's (make) is a Guardian

Well, the adjustment screw won't come out. The other screw holds the frame together. If it's stuck, try to lubricate it with WD-40. If the head is stripped and you can't use a screwdriver, cut a slot with a hacksaw and hew a flat-head screw driver in the new slot.

Well I thank you for the reply & I forgot to tell
you I did use some great penetrating oil, no help.
What I did end up doing was got out my Dremel tool
and ground the heads off, need I say more,
Well the bracket & the roller came out and I
replaced them, Bang, IT all WORKS.
THANK YOU AGAIN.
