SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Substituting closet door tracks and wheels

A home owner from USA says:
I have an older 3 doors mirror closet sliding doors from John Sterling. I need to replace the track because it was bent during a floor replacement and its old and worn. I might replace the bottom wheels also they are old and worn. I'm wondering if it would be ok to change to a different track than the original? The original track was never very good at keeping the wheels on line well and collects a lot of pet hair. I was hoping to try a different track with less recessive areas that collect hair that's hard to vacuum out. Would there be a problem switching if I matched the new track with the appropriate wheels?
Thanks,

I'm not sure what you have. Could you show us a few pictures of the original track and rollers? That will help us come up with a good solution.
A quick learner from California says:
Thanks for your reply and sorry for the delay. I attached a picture of the track and a roller.

Thanks! The roller looks like our 23-070, while the track looks more like our 23-272. Look these parts over and tell me if you agree.
