So, by “roll top”, I suspect you have a tambor door. Usually they hang up because the tracks on both sides fill with dust/dirt/generic crud.

To get mine to move, I used liberal amounts of food grade silicon spray along both edges with firm (not ridiculous) upward pressure on both sides.

Good luck

I took the top off of the spice rack using my grandfathers 90 deg. ratcheting Philips screw drive. I could force the cover to the back. we had a food storage container that was just big enough to cause the jam. having it half apart I removed the rack and paste waxed both the front grove and the back grove. it works much better now. That ratcheting Philips screw drive went to Mexico City on an Airstream Rally in the 60's. Keep those old tools. He was born in 1901 and could fix almost anything.
