How can I keep my handle from breaking again

A quick learner from New York, NY says:
my sliding door handle 82-055K broke. How can avoid this happening again? It broke after only two years.

Paul from SWISCO responded:
One reason why patio door handles like this break is because the rollers and track are not in the best condition. Is your door sliding smoothly? Maybe give the track a spray of silicone to help. If that doesn't help, the patio door rollers may need to be replaced entirely.
