Your first step is to remove the the old handle and then clean the area from which you removed it. If glue or any other type of adhesive was used on the old one, make sure that any remaining matter is scraped off to allow the new door handle to be installed as smooth as possible. Next, make sure that the holes on the door itself are of equal distance with the holes on the new glass handle. If the holes match, proceed to drill in the screws. If new ones need to be drilled, mark the surface with a pencil where you wish to place the new screws. If you are installing a glass handle that does not require screws, you may use an adhesive to install the new handle. Make sure that that you use a strong water proof adhesive that will withstand heat and steam. After you′ve applied the adhesive and have installed the new glass handle, do not use the handle for several hours until the handle is firmly secured.
Once the door is on its side, you can closely examine the wheels and the track. Most commonly, you will find the wheels are full of soot and debris, and the track is also likely very dirty. To clean the wheels, use compressed air and needle tip pliers. Be careful to pull every last hair out of the wheel bearings. It is wise to be diligent in this step, so you don′t have to make a habit of this process. Once the wheels are completely clean, spray a little bit of penetrating oil into the wheel bearings, spinning the wheel as you apply the oil. (The best choice for the oil is DuPont′s Teflon non-stick dry film lubricant.) It is equally important to clean the track that the wheels rest on. Use damp paper towels to remove the grit and dirt, and then spray the penetrating oil along the track so it is well-applied. Use a clean paper towel to ensure it is evenly applied.
One of the disadvantages of glass doors is that they are more liable to crack or break if they receive a very sharp knock or heavy blow. However, such a blow would probably cause significant damage to any door, and as they′re made of toughened glass, glass doors and partitions are more than tough enough to cope with everyday use, and should not shatter or break revealing sharp edges should a seriously hard knock cause any damage.
