Do you have one of the early Sanibels? Those have a magnetic "switch" on the lower part of the door ( switches the led door entry lights on/off ) that can drag on the threshold. Later models have a different setup. Check that first, if not the problem look closely at the door. Does it appear to be sitting square in the frame? It probably is and I think you will likely have to adjust the latch plate. Throw the dead bolt and close the door till the deadbolt is about to hit the frame, can you tell if the bolt is in alignment with the hole for it in the latch plate? You may have to drill different mounting holes to adjust the plate, maybe even enlarge the holes in the door frame a bit. Do it now and get it overwith so you can close the door with one finger and a nice "click"!
