How do I operate the retractable screen? The top window is stuck in place.

Asked by Marlene June 3, 2017

Answers

The window shade type mechanism has a tendency to jam. Screen will come out of the side track. Don't try to overpower it as you will find that the pot metal tabs on the release mechanism will fracture. Replacements not available from Anderson. Replacing my door this year.

The locking mechanism is very easy and works great. The bottom will not open but the top will. The top does have a screen and the bottom is just glass. Great door. We have two toddlers and two dogs and it works great for them

The top window slides down to reveal the screen. When the window is slid back up the screen stores back up in the top of the door.

Overall installation was about two hours as described, and no, I'm not a professional. Hanging the actual door took less than an hour, the rest of the time was doing the finish work including drilling the holes for three door handle with the supplied drill bit, etc. The only drill bit not included was a 7/16". But that aside, the door is really well made and Is excellent quality. Very happy with the purchase.

We loved the door and it works great but the instructions are horrible, Andersen needs to work on that Manual because it’s not “user friendly” at all.

But the hide away screen separated from the frame due to the screen material was too short and did not allow any room or stretching when playing down. No children or animals to cause this. Felt like they were scrimping on product length!!!

Love that this door offers a full view, yet still has a built-in screen to allow fresh air. The door itself is lightweight with a brake option to keep the door open, if desired.

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy this door, And the screen is the greatest invention! I needed a new door and it started out as a joke that I wanted to get a full glass door so my Cats could look out. As you can see it was so well worth it!

I love this door! I will say, as others have, that this is not a 2 hour installation. It was about 4.5 hours. The directions are also not the easiest to follow, so read and reread. Don't mind the reflection in the door, the option for the oil rubbed bronze look is amazing! I purchased the same model, different generation, about 15 years ago, and they have definitely improved the pull down screen function. I'm very happy with the door! Now if Home Depot will implement their credit card discounts for the order immediately upon buying the item with the promotion, that would be a great improvement.

It's ok, but I expected more

I was looking for a nice, but not super expensive storm door for my new house that didn't look cheap. This Anderson door seemed to fit the bill and was one of the few in this price range that had nickel hardware. Installation: I'm certainly not a pro, but I'm also not an idiot for general house repair either. A storm door install shouldn't be terribly difficult. However, the instructions for this install were a joke. Anderson clearly uses a generic set of install instructions and then provides additional instructions in each of the 'kits' for your specific door. This means you are ultimately using 4 or 5 different instruction manuals. At times these instructions are unclear and do not match the items you have been provided. An example of this is mounting the hinges to the door frame. The instructions provided said to use the pre-drilled holes; which makes sense. Unfortunately, that wasn't even possible as the gap for the pre-drilled holes didn't match the gap for the hinges. I was able to use 2 of the 4 holes, but needed to drill 2 new holes. The hinges weren't the only time you needed to drill holes. Again, this is clearly a standard door frame that is used for multiple doors. You need to self drill the holes in the frame for the hardware (door handle and lock). Anderson provided a spade drill bit for this which worked ok. The directions warn you how precise these holes need to be though. You could easily screw this step up and have a mess on your hands. I was disappointed that this step wasn't done within the manufacturing process. Anderson also provided at least 1 drill bit. Fortunately, I have multiple drill bit sets as the one provided snapped in half drilling the second hole (for the hinges that shouldn't have needed holes drilled). I'm amazed that Anderson doesn't have either a step-by-step app built for their instructions or a video of the installation for this exact door that they refer you to. These are becoming very commonplace and wouldn't take significant effort to develop. Useage: I've had the door for about 2 months now. It opens and closes nicely. The pull-down top screen is very nice. Having the screen hidden when not 'open' is a great feature. It makes the door have a nice clean, all glass look / finish when it is hidden. I'm disappointed with one of the support panels for the screen though. The panel has already warped and has a major 'wave' to it (see image). I would not expect this poor quality for a $260 door. The panel which is likely why it warped. Overall: I'm on the fence regarding this product. The appearance is nice enough, but the install process is less than ideal. I'm skeptical regarding the overall durability of this door given the warping on the screen support panel that I am experiencing after less than 2 months of usage. While this door likely beats many of its competitors in the price range, it may be worth it to spend a bit more and get a more durable product.

Anderson Model 2500 Venting Storm Door Closer Bracket Failures
Value :
5
Quality :
4
I bought my door back in Jan 2015 and I like it. The only problem is the the door closer brackets keep breaking. I'm now on my third set . The door bracket, jam brace and especially the jam bracket arm are the weakest links as you can see in the photo. Made of thin pot mental they break very easily. I'm on my third set. Anderson door needs to look at this flaw and beef up these brackets with a heaver metal.
