    Try a neighbour if not a Glazier.Window fitter. Depends what repair you need doing.

    If the door just kinda "sticks" when you open or close it, get some graphite spray and spray the tracks (after you clean them out). Works like a charm.

    Get some wd40 and spay on top and bottom of the track and see if that will fix the problem

    Hi, I have heard that if you clean the bottom track ( that's where the dirt usually builds up ) and if you don't have any grafite spray or wd40, try a bar of soap and rub it on the track a few times and see if that doesn't help before you call someone. I would ask my neighbors or family first, they might know a great, inexpensive handyman. Hope this helps, I have not tried it so I can't swear by it. Good luck ! Let us know if it works :D

    A dry lubricant like Silicone spray works best, and debris doesn't stick to it.

    All good suggestions above. But cleaning the tracks well first, may solve your problem right away. Good luck.

    If you don't have any graphite or silicone spray, you can use Endust in a pinch. As others said, first clean the track out thoroughly. Also, if you can get the door completely out, you might check the roller/wheel on the bottom. It may be out of round and in need of being replaced.

    You could also use a Candle, rub it into the track I use a candle to ease sticking drawers in cabinets, works well.
