The patio wheel adjusting screws are located at either end of the bottom section of the door. Some patio doors have a blanking plug covering the adjustment hole remove the plug and use a torch to shine into the bottom section of the door to determine where the screw is located and what type of screw it is. There maybe two screws that are visible one is an adjustment screw and the other is a fixing screw that holds the patio frame together. Use a long screwdriver to turn the adjusting screw in a clockwise direction to raise the patio. Adjust both wheels the same and check if the patio is level by almost closing the door and noting the gap between the door and the frame. Adjust the wheels until the gap is even all the way down. You may need to move the door locking keeper on the frame after adjusting the wheels. If this didnt solve the problem you may need to replace the patio wheels.
