Jeldwen threshold won't move

this is a metal exterior jeldwen door
the threshold at the knob end has a noticeable gap, and I tried to turn the screws on the threshold to raise it, but they won't budge. is there a trick to it? it won't go down either.

The screw/thread interface has rusted. Spray PB Blaster on the head of the adjuster screws. Wait 24 hours before trying to rotate the screw. A hammer style impact screwdriver, used judiciously, can be used to get the screw rotating if the threads are well anchored (don't know any way to determine this other than feel). Good luck.
