Sill isn't level and left door bottom pivot needs to be raised up.
Issue one. Nothing lasts forever. Things change through wear and tear, or simply from age-even if rarely used- so it is no surprise if something that has an adjustment screw might need to be adjusted from time to time. 2 closer systems need to be adjusted so they work in tandem. If one closes faster than the other or more slowly than the other due to age or being out of adjustment, you might potentially have problems that develop fRom them figniting each other for dominance. The only way to know is to disconnect them from the door, pull them both out at the same time, and let them go... or time them with a stop watch. Each door closer has a final latching speed which is the final jerk the door should make to pull the door shut. This is where a slight adjustment is made. The top closer is mounted slightly farther from the jamb than the bottom one so that the door actually gets two quick jerks a split second apart. This supposedly helps latch the door better than if they are exactly the same timing. Yes, screws can loose over time. As the door operates it puts back and forth stress on the frame which can rub on the screw and there's probably a 50% chance it could turn it lose, depending on where the friction is. Or, if it is an aluminum door, with screws into aluminum, not wood, it could be that the holes or the screws are slightly stripped or elongated... no longer tight. Aluminum is soft, so a lot of back and forth movement could elongate the hole the screw is in. Issue two. Your doors hitting in the middle- if not corrected by tightening the screws- could also indicate the hinge is slightly bent. Don't know, can't tell without being there. As mentioned, aluminum is soft so what I often find is that the hinge z-bar will distort at the top hinge, meaning the door is no longer perfectly plumb... allowing the door to sag which causes it to rub on the leading edge. This can sometimes be counteracted at least temporarily by straightening the hinge again with a block of wood and a few well directed blows from a hammer. Other times, the doors just need to be taken off and reinstalled because things can move over time and get out of adjustment.
