With great difficulty, and commonly only on items removed during assembly. Sometimes around the latch mechanism, sometimes on the metal glass insert sealing frame (embossed), rarely on the glass in a lower corner as a small decal (though that might just be the glass manufacturer's label), sometimes on the bottom of the door (so needs removal to find it). One brand I saw also had it stamped into the face (don't remember if inide or outside face) of the bottom track, so you hd to get down on knees with flashlight to read it.


If looking for parts (rollers, latch, etc - remove and take to Home Depot or Lowes or such - they carry a lot of repair parts for common brands. If looking for glass repair does not matter - glass repair place can fabricate replacement glazing units for almost doors and windows except for the few (generally in last 5 years) which have the frame totally encapsulating the glazing unit so it is not replaceable.
