This roller is not specifically made for Pella doors, but it can be used in some. The only way to know for sure if it will match is to compare our dimensions and style to your existing roller.
A professional from CA says:
Generic Replacement, No Flange 1959-1996
Pella Original, No Flange 1959-1996
Pella New Style, With Flange 1991-Present

You should be able to feel around under the door to see if the flange is there. I have used the generic and found it to be good quality and fits just like the original. But if having original parts is worth it to you, look at 81-098 without flanges, or 81-244 for the one with flanges. I have only seen these 2 types of rollers referenced to Pella. If you know of others, I'm curious.
