pocket door blues...

is there an easy fix for a pocket door that slides open, but gets rather caught up and is rather difficult to close? the only way to close it is to push from very low on the door. when i push it from the latch or higher the visible roller lifts up and the door jams itself in at an angle. i realize that what probably needs to be done is to take down the trim, but then what? i'd appreiciate any feedback. thanks

Sounds like the back roller has failed. Remove the trim and casing so that you can swing the bottom of the door when it's in the closed position and remove it. Replace BOTH rollers, reinstall the door, the trim and the casing.
