Unless I'm off, the big mis-understanding here is they are talking an appliance garage? That model of Cedar Creek has an appliance garage in the kitchen area. Is that what the OP is referring to??

Ah ha! I've learned something new. Here's a pic of what I believe is the Hoosier cabinet and on the left side at counter top level the garage door.

The Hoosier cabinet was a comment made by our walk though guy. Not sure about his meaning....did ask...dont really care...lol. It appears the correct term is appliance garage door. Is reminds me of a roll top desk.

Looks like I'll have to get creative with a fix.

You are correct. They are called Tambours in both applications. If you find a solution better than the ones I posted please advise. The spring clip I'm using
is a bit unsightly. I'm also considering a cam lock behind the track.

Likewise, I'd be interested in the fix. I have one that works perfectly and one that is difficult to raise. So, I actually have the reverse problem. So far, it just hasn't been high enough on my to-do list and I haven't messed with it.

If you can get the rails off, counter sink a small compression spring at the top on both sides and re-install the rails. Leave the rails loose except at the ends if possible.

For a temporary fix...I picked up two new yellow sponges the brick shaped ones. I folded and tucked them in between the inside wall and the smooth flat sided of the roll door mechanism on each side. Im my case it needed a little more side pressure to hold the door up. This will work for the weekend. I'll do a be job later. Im thinking of installing a small compression spring on the each side. I couldn't find the right size spring at the local hardware store here.

Maybe one from a ball point pen?

Wow it really confused me I thought a garage door is something you drive a car or whatever through I assumed it was a Toyhauler..... Never heard the term appliance garage door I have restored & sold many of Hoosier cabinets over the so that confused me too (doesn't take much)......

Usually that type cabinet door (tambour) is weighted on it own to stay open.... but would to need to in the all the way open position..... I suspect that after a while it will get to the point the it will stay open wear etc. But in the mean time a spring etc. would help
