Sliding patio screen door getting stuck

I already posted this message in the Exterior Home Improvement section, but then realized this might be the appropriate place instead.

My patio screen door is sticking when I try to slide it. It has progressively gotten worse over the past few months. Now I'm presuming my rollers need to be cleaned or replaced. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as the steps I need to take? Thank you kindly.

It may be something as simple as raising the door (lowering the rollers) via an adjustment screw on the bottom of each end of the door. It could have settled over the years, and needs an adjustment. Of course keeping the groove on the bottom clean is imperative, and a little lubrication on the rollers wouldn't hurt.
