Why does my sliding door came off the track?
Most sliding doors manage to get knocked off-kilter at one point or another.

You may need to rotate the adjustment screws at the top slightly to allow for movement.
How do I get my sliding door to slide easier?
Use WD-40 or a silicone based lubricant and spray the entire track. As some fans of Home Repair Tutor know, I love using Blaster’s Garage Door spray lubricant because it’s silicone based and doesn’t attract dirt buildup. It costs about $5 and can be found at any Home Depot or Lowes here in the states.
