Deck settling and causing issues with sliding door opening on sunroom


I have a sunroom that has been built on a wooden deck back in 1988. The problem I have is that the deck has settled to the point that I can no longer adjust the rollers on the door to match the door up with the opening. I have taken one roller all the way up and one all the way down. The vertical section of the door opening is plumb but the bttom track runs downhill. Any suggestions?

Start with posting some pictures.
Need to know what's above and below that area.
Most likely it was build with undersized rim and floor joist.

I will do so tomorrow since it is dark outside now. What do you mean what is above an below that area? Are you talking about the room or the deck? If you are talking about the deck, I have skirting that goes all around it to enclose it so I will have to see how I could get a picture underneath the deck. The deck is very sturdy and never do I feel like it is sagging in any area when walking around.

If it was built right then nothing would have moved.
I forgot to add another guess. Improper footing that are failing or sinking.
