How to stop pocket doors from squealing

A handy person from Palm Harbor, Florida says:
I have two pocket doors that were formerly flat slab doors. We changed all of the doors to 6 pannel doors and now they sqeal and sqeak relentlessly. Can you suggest what the problem is? I am thinking the rollers are worn out. Your thoughts please. The rollers used are very similar to the 23-049.

Thank you for posting. It could be your rollers are worn out. Before you replace them, try lubricating first. You can use something like our 75-077, or a silicone spray. If they still squeak, then they'll need to be replaced.
