Interior Door swells and sticks

Make sure the door is sealed/painted on all 6 sides, especially top and bottom. There should be about 1/8 clearance all around the door and jamb, if not, time to plane it down, then reseal where you have planed. If it looks like the door is cocked in the opening, pulling the jamb up with longer screws in the top hinge, and into the house framing, may help.
