I have a Pella sliding patio door that will not open. It seems to be stuck in the corner oposite of the door handle on the bottom. I removed the lock attached to the floor and that is where it is stuck. The lock was not the issue. I am able to raise and lower the door manually and with the hight adjustment but is still stuck at this point. I can not visabally see anything blocking the door from opening. Any suggestions?
The door is about 10 years old.
The door lock on the floor, which allows to partially open the patio door, was not the issue.
This issue has been resolved and the problem was in the door locking mechanism, because the door adjustment was too high on the locking latch side of the door. The door lock has two latches controlled by one lever and the lower latch was not clearing the stationary bar. After getting the door open, I was able to lower the door on the lock side which now clears the stationary bar.
