Owner's Manual

Slide Patio Doors

Purchasing windows is not unlike buying other building products. When a question arises, a helpful guide can lead you through common questions such as finishing interiors/exteriors, adjusting a hardware system or cleaning glass.

Our owner’s manual is a user-friendly guide intended to provide information and recommendations related to Lincoln Windows and Patio doors. Products tend to look better and last longer with the proper care and maintenance.

Operating Panel Adjustment

If your slide patio door panel does not operate smoothly it can be adjusted via the two adjustment screws located at the bottom inside face of the operating panel.

To adjust the door, remove the plugs covering the adjustment screws. Using a Phillips screwdriver adjust the operating panel up or down being sure to keep the panel square with the lock side jamb. Turning the adjustment screws clockwise will lower the door panel while turning the screw counter clockwise will raise the panel. Be sure to replace the plug covers after the adjustments are completed. This will help to keep the rollers clean. After your door is adjusted, latch and keeper adjustment may be necessary.


Lock and Keeper Adjustment

To make sure that your patio door closes correctly, the keeper may be adjusted up or down until the latch engages properly. It is also possible to tighten or loosen the latch mechanism on the door by using the adjustment screw on the edge of the latch.


Screen Adjustment

If your rolling patio screen does not operate smoothly, it may be adjusted via the two adjustment screws located at the bottom vertical screen frame edge. Use a small Phillips screwdriver to adjust the bottom rollers up or down until the screen rolls smoothly. Make sure to keep the screen square to the lock side jamb.

Track Maintenance

It is important that the sill track be kept free of dirt and debris. To clean, vacuum loose dirt and debris as necessary. Wash tracks with mild soap and water as needed. There are weep holes on the exterior edge of the sill and at both jamb edges viewed from the interior. They must be kept free of dirt and debris.
