matching (or equivalent) sliding glass door wheel

A home owner from Tucker, GA says:

Hello Swisco!

I have an old sliding glass door (possibly 1970s?) that has gotten a little "gritty" with its sliding operation. I took it off of the track, and discovered that the wheel has broken. However, I was hopeful when I saw that the whole wheel module was easily removable.

We've looked at our local Handy Ace, and we've done a little bit of looking online. I cannot seem to find an exact match. But my Google searching led me to your site and your Part Identifier service.

I have attached four images to the post. Can you help me find the right replacement, or an equivalent that will do the job?

Thanks!

Chris

Hello,

Unfortunately, this roller assembly has been discontinued and no substitute has been found. If the wheel is the only problem and you think that you can reuse the original housing, take a look at our roller and axle kits here  depending on the diameter of your original wheel.

I'm sorry that we won't be able to provide a replacement for your original roller but please let us know if you have any other hardware questions. Thanks for posting!

Thank you for your quick reply!

I can remove the wheel from the part assembly, and I think that likely one of the two kits should do it. I am just not sure which.

The wheel appears to have been broken/shattered, or otherwise ground down. It doesn't quite measure an inch. So, I suppose I should try the smaller of the two wheel kits. I am attaching more photos for your thoughts.

Thank you!
Chris

I agree that your operator wheel has certainly seen better days. You may want to check the other roller in your door to confirm if it has an intact wheel that you can measure. If not, you are welcome to order both sizes and send the incorrect one back to us. You can find our full return policy here
