screen door slamming fix

since the cold weather snap my screen door slams shut, i have adjusted the screw and nothing, it is almost as if there is no air getting in the closer/pumpthing, i want to know if i need to replace the entire piece or is there something else I can do to stop my door from slamming. I am afraid the next cold snap might break the glass in the screen door and also afraid that after every cold snap I have to replace the closer. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thankyou

They wear out, if the screws not adjusting it then it's shot, there is no fixing it.
Look at the piston rod, is it bent? If it is most often it's because there's no safety spring at the top of the door to stop it from swinging open to far. Once the shafts bent it will wear out the seals.
