screen door squeak clues?

I searched first, but nothing came up. I could be solo in this dilemma.
Any clues how to silence the screen door, shrieks seems to be coming from the spring mechanism . Have cleaned and waxed the tracks and sprayed dry lube top and bottom in the ends while I had it all out to move the TV.  We had 3 of the same roller screens in our home and they all squeaked too. Other than magic I'm stumped.
By the way, the screen is about a foot longer than it needs to be, probably made for a 3' door, so if you had a tear within the first foot or less, it could be removed and rebuilt, I bet.

Mine doesn't squeak so I can't help. Maybe that extra foot is so the screen gives when your dog runs into it.
