Most sliders have adjustable wheels

Sliders have wheels (kinda like miniature railroad trolleys) at the bottom. On anderson doors, the two adjustment screws are covered by plugs (about the size of a dime) on the bottom, facing into the house. Pry the plugs out, and you'll see the adjustment screws. On a 40-yr old aluminum slider I worked on last summer, the adjustment screws were on the bottom, on opposite ends of the door (facing the jambs).
Tweak the height of the door height adjustment screws to get the sliding panel to line up with the jamb it closes against.
If the gap is too big, then you have to call in a pro (house may have settled too much, sill framing may be rotted, etc)
Good...

    I have cabinets in my kitchen that are painted.......i want to go oak face frame and doors...............can i pull off the existing face frame, and replace with an oak one......my question is......whats the best way to build the frame......dowels?

    • The face frames may be a beotch to replace; they were built on the cabinet boxes, or glued to them. Just depends on the construction. The best way is to use pocket screws. There is an angled hole (pocket) drilled into th …e fancy machine).

      Otherwise, you just apply the boards individually to the cabinet box and pin the edge that hangs down with a finish nail (not the best method, but it's done on built in shelves everyday).
