Pocket door issues

My 05 Magna has a pocket door by the fridge that has a big problem, door is binding at the bottom and is crooked being closer to the wall when in the closed position at the top than at the bottom by a good inch and a half, does anyone know how to adjust these?

On our '09 there are adjustments on the top of the door. The doors hang from a roller hanger and the bolts are adjustable. I might have some pictures but they're on my laptop and I'm at work right now.

OK, got the laptop out. Here's two pictures of our door. You can see the adjusting bolt in the bottom one. The white lever is what holds the door on the bolt. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
The reason I took the pictures is due to the crack shown. That came from Cummins carelessness. I've since repaired the crack and other stuff they broke like one slide adjuster.

Door could be messed up.

Ours had one that was binding and had full mirror on one side.

The door was split or glue failed where the rails were glued to stiles.

Managed to get door out of pocket and carefully rub in glue into the joints and clamp it back.

Works fine now.

Had to do same for every door in it as the center panels were too large and no room for expansion.

Check door closely to insure not coming apart.

Thanks for the info and the pics. Have found that my door is actually coming apart, will have to glue it back together and then adjust. Sounds like Cummins was not kind to you.

The factory used something like gorilla glue which I never have had any luck with.

Titebond outdoor can be rubbed into the joints.

Pour some on then rub finger over the joint and it will force glue out to other side.

If it can be pulled apart use a brush to remove all residue then use finger or good brush to go at all mating parts and scrub it in then clamp tight making sure aligned as glue stronger than wood.

I used the Gorilla glue to both glue the door back together as well as reset the stop block that was pulled off the wall in back. Did have to be careful not to use too much as the glue expands as it sets. Used a pin to get the glue into the joint. Well the site rotates the pictures, top is to the left. That's the block just pushed back into place on the staples.

They weren't at all!
Anyway, here are a few pictures of the door.. It was cracked all the way through and CC said it would be several $1,000 to replace if I couldn't glue it.
The repair came out pretty good in fact.
