Depends some of the older ones are a real pain. Usually a little cussing a little beer drinking will fix it.

Yes, yuk!! pain in the ass!!

Most likely the backside is off track. I use to then take the front off the track which enabled me to tilt the door enough to pop the backside back on track and then lift the front back onto the track. Pain in the ass!!

Did I say I use to do this.... yes, I use to, because when remodeling I had my two bathroom pocket doors replaced with "real" doors.

if you can, remove the bottom of door holder..pull door out back into position, slip the bottom holder back underneath the door...may require a helper in the clost or other space. drive the screws back into place...should be fixedcelebrate

I fixed one, but it was off track on the top. It's been about 6 years since I did it, so I don't remember much. I do remember cussing a lot and I didn't have to rip the wall out. and cussing. did I mention cussing?

For instance:

 

 

See how much more fun that was? No cussing!

PS - wall is straight, fridge is sitting uneven. Also I did pack out the corner like you should
