Open Question

I want to install mirrored bi-fold doors in a bedroom closet. There are already tracks on top from the previous wooden doors. Should I cut the carpet to install the bottom track and what is the best way to secure these on to the concrete slab? Lynn

SOURCE: I have a wooden bifold

The problem with bifold doors occurs when the top rollers are out of alignment or hung improperly. Fully open the doors and then check to make sure the edge is perfectly straight and running right along the center of the frame. Adjust the top rollers to straighten the doors by loosening the screws and resetting. Make sure they are perfectly aligned; any misalignment---even a small one---will cause the door to open awkwardly.

hope this helps.

Help - My Bedroom Doesn't Have a Closet for Hanging Clothes

Most bedrooms come with built in furniture closets for hanging clothes. But sometimes you come across apartments that don't have any facilities.
Here are some suggestions for what to do if you bedroom is lacking in a hanging space.

1. Check out some of the cheaper furniture stores. You might find that you can pick up a closet for a lot less money than you realized.

2. Buy a moveable fold-up closet. You can get ones made of canvas or plastic that can be folded up and packed away when you don't need them. They're not as stable as wooden closets but make a great temporary solution.

3. Use a shower rail or pole that you can attach to 2 sides of a wall. This can provide a secure hanging space without needing a big purchase.

How do I fix a bi-fold closet door that came off the track

I'm guessing that you are referring to the wheel guide on the floating panel. You may have to remove the door completely in order to re-install it. At the pivot points (upper & lower) next to the jam; the upper one may or may not be spring loaded, the bottom one is threaded usually with a beveled head with teeth on it. You'll need a flat-bar or someone to lift up on the door as you thread the pivot bolt back into the door, allowing enough play to pop it off of the seat plate. The bi-fold will have to be open(the panels flat across). Tilt the bottom of the doors out, this will allow you to re-set both the upper pivot in its bracket and the guide roller on the floating panel in the track at the same time. Re-position the doors in the opening with the lower pivot over its bracket and re-adjust(thread down) the lower pivot until it holds the door up in the track. (Take care as to the position of the lower pivot in its bracket as it also adjusts the clearance for the door to swing/pivot next to the jam!!) {The upper pivot bracket(in the track) can also be adjusted for closeness to the jam}. It is important that these pivot points be plum(straight up& dn) They can cause the bi-fold to tilt; or cause the roller guide on the forward door to either move up, or dip down as it travels out to the open position.

What are bi-fold doors? Can I use them as a room divider?

Bi-fold doors are often used when space in a room is limited and there is no room to open the door outwards. Bi-fold doors fold inwards and can visually be a real feature in the room.

Check the next procedure to Power Mirrors...

Diagnosis & Testing

The exterior mirror control switch receives power through circuit SBP12 (GN/RD) and ground through circuit GD143 (BK/VT). The exterior mirror control switch uses circuit CPM23 (GY) as the common circuit for both exterior mirror up/down and right/left movement.
  1. Possible Causes:
    Fuse 12 (7.5A) (SJB) An open in circuits CPM23 (GY), SBP12 (GN/RD) or GD143 (BK/VT A short to ground in circuit CPM23 (GY) A short to voltage in circuit CPM23 (GY) Exterior mirror control switch.
  2. Checking the voltage at the mirror switch:
    Key in OFF position. Disconnect: Exterior Mirror Control Switch C527. Key in ON position. Measure the voltage between ground and exterior mirror control switch C527-1, circuit SBP12 (GN/RD). Voltage should be greater than 10 volts.
  3. If voltage is greater than 10 volts, check that fuse 12 (7.5A) is OK. If OK, REPAIR circuit SBP12 (GN/RD) for an open.

Exterior Mirror Motor Synchronization

NOTE This procedure must be performed any time the power folding mirrors are manually folded in or out, or if the position of the mirror case has been moved without using the mirror control switch.
NOTE If the power folding mirrors are folded or unfolded continuously (6 to 10 cycles), the power lockout feature will disable the system for 2 minutes to prevent damage to the power fold motors. After 2 minutes have elapsed, normal operation will resume.
  1. Set the mirror control switch to the CENTER position.
  2. Use the mirror control switch (press rearward) to automatically cycle the power folding mirrors in and out 4 times.
  3. When an audible popping sound is heard, the power folding mirror motors are synchronized.
    NOTE It may be necessary to cycle the power folding mirrors in or out up to 4 times before they are synchronized.

Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
    NOTE If equipped with power folding mirrors, they must be synchronized any time the mirrors have been folded or unfolded without using the mirror control switch. Refer to synchronization procedure.
  2. Position the exterior mirror glass in a downward position to obtain a gap at the edge of the mirror.
    CAUTION Place a shop towel between the exterior mirror glass and the hand to avoid personal injury in the instance of glass breakage.
  3. Insert a flat-blade screwdriver between the mirror glass tabs and the mounting plate, and rotate to separate the locking tabs from the mounting plate.
  4. Carefully pull the top edge of the glass away from the exterior mirror housing.

Stuck Door Knob with No Access!

I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe
