Love to find a simple replacement

A quick learner from Anderson, IN says:
But I anticipate rebuilding two axles and wheels. Please, not that the axle is 3/4" long and so is the frame of the patio door it sits in. Can't find this size on your page. Help.

Greetings. Take a look at the 81-140 with the 7/16" wide wheel. This is possibly your best roller to try and adapt to your door. Review the dimensions, and see what you think. 

A quick learner from Anderson, IN says:
I have added more photos to help identify a solution. This wheel has a broken axle and would normally look like photo 1. Then looking into the bottom channel of the door you can see "hooks" that the wheel bracket sits upon and just hangs there. In photo three you can see the wheel and bracket hanging on the hooks. Upon tightening the "lift" screw this creates a fulcrum and holds the wheel bracket into the hooks quite well, when new.

Importantly, this is a 96" opening all aluminum frame double door with double pane glass. Weight is at least 100# per door. The other door is stationary though and doesn't require rollers.

We did have a roller like this, but it was discontinued some time ago and is no longer available. The 81-140 is, I think, your only bet, but it's different enough that I can't make any guarantees. I apologize for any inconvenience. 

A quick learner from Anderson, IN says:
How does 81-140 attach to the door and can it hold that kind of weight? Do you have an axle repair kit with a 3/4" length axle or one that can be cut down?

We do carry the 81-203 , which has a 7/8" long axle, as well as the the 81-303 which has a 1" axle. As for the rollers, we do carry the 81-225 steel wheel and the nylon wheel 81-237, along with the 81-236. However you will have to see if these wheels are wide enough to be used with your door. I'm not familiar with your door and not sure how the 81-140 roller can be installed. I find it similar to your roller. Take a look at all the suggestion of parts on the web site to see if you can use any of these to repair your door.
