How to adjust sliding screen door rollers

A quick learner from USA says:
I have an Atrium sliding screen door that I can not get adjusted correctly. It has wheels on the top and bottom. Every time I slide the door it rocks and sticks. Is there a sequence to adjusting the rollers ?

First, loosen up the top rollers on the door. Then adjust the bottom rollers so that the door is not dragging on the bottom track and keeping the screen door plumb to the side jamb. With the bottom rollers adjusted, you will then need to adjust the to[ roller. What I do is adjust the top rollers a little at a time. The purpose of the top rollers is to keep the screen door on the track. You don't want the roller so tight that it will not slide easily, but not so loose that the door will jump off the track. Also try some lubricant on the track. We have the 75-077 lubricating stick that works well.
