Retractable screen door wont retract

My screen will not retract fully. How would I fix this issue?

Hi Donna;

One common problem with retractable screens is leaves getting into the cassette where the screen rolls into.

Leaves and twigs and general dust build up especially if you live in an area with a lot of trees which typically drop their leaves this time of year.

Pull the screen all the way out and brush out anything on the cloth that might stop it from rolling up easily.

Another common problem is the top or bottom tracks . Sometimes screws come loose and the tracks get out of alignment. That will caouse the the vertical slide bar to jam when you try to push it across.

You may need to reinstall the top or bottom rails to get them totally parallel with each other so the door does not bind or jam.
