Anderson sliding patio door install issues

#1 Post by Baconbits5 » Tue Feb 25, 2020 12:03 am

Has anyone else had problems with the non- operating door pull away from the jamb In the middle? The door was doing this out of the crate.

Can you post up a picture? Pulling away in what direction...plumb or level?

Sounds like either there is a bow in the frame or panel, OR the panel needs to be secured. As WOW mentioned, a picture would be very helpful here.

I have seen quite a few andersen door panels with bows, also a lot of buckling due to damaged rails.

I install a fair number, though not my favorite if the 200 series. The A series seems good.
