The sliding door closer may not work well if the door rollers are not in good condition or there is too much friction caused by rubber seals and weather strips. If the rolling system is scrolling smooth, even a light duty sliding door closer can operate 80kgdoor.

We suggest you try to improve the scrolling quality of the door hardware, first.

Why the sliding door closer can’t bring the door back?
Quality-check: Detach the 6th Gen sliding door closer from the door by loosen “bar fastener”. Pull out the tubes by hand manually. Check if the tube can go back completely or not? If yes, then it means the door closer quality is OK.
Friction-check; Check rubber seals, weather strips and rollers and track. Over-tight seals, bad rollers or track and improper door condition might generate rolling resistance, which leads to the door closer cannot work properly.
Tightness-check: Re-attach the “bar fastener” and “thumb fastener” but don’t fix them too tight.
Level-check: If the door closer is not carefully levelled, the door closer may not work well.
Speed-check: Regulate the speed control valve to adjust for closing speed.
Power-check: If all the above checks done, but the door still can’t close back; then you might need to use in a next power range of 6thGeneration sliding door closer.
