If I got this right you have installed a entry door
with a cill and the door is so tight that its rubbing
on the cill. If thats right you have a couple of
options. 1-you will have to shave the bottom of the door.
2- The other thing you can do is try to lift the whole unit
up so its not so tight. Myself I would take the door off
and just shave it.

Typically the bottom of newer exterior door has an adjustable sweep ( the rubber part on the bottom).
