The air tank has NEVER been refilled with air. I did not have a good pressure gauge, but it did have pressure seemingly in the 20-60 psi range.

Updated question to specify it's the problem goes away in summer, but comes back before any freeze. Also the tank moves easily, has pressure, and it's not a broken air bladder.

comment How do I move a door hinge out 1/8“ (door is too tight to the stop molding, makes ”paint popping" noise)?
Paperstreet: note your second photo the one with "not increased" does not represent the original posting. Both sides of the door were painted, thus both the strike side and the hinge side were increased compared to the original hang. Moving the hinges restores the door position relative to the hinge side stop molding, and may (not in my case) require a matching adjustment on the strike. If the door had been perfect I'd have needed to move both hinges and strike out by the same amount (two credit card thicknesses is what I used).

With appreciation for the diagrams, I think the conclusion is wrong. Since paint was added the door edge plus all three stops, everything is pushed out from the historic condition. Pushing the hinge out corrects all three edges. In the end that's what I did: worked perfectly.

@DMoore If I do the jam, I hardly have to repaint. If I do the door, I have to feather the new paint into the old.

@DMoore - it's really hard to take the door jamb outside for sanding, and that side is heavier with paint dross. Note I would never sand without a HEPA vac, even outdoors. Lead gets in soil and up to plants.

The strike plate is in the perfect place. The stop is encrusted in many layers of paint, I'd have to move at least two of the three stop moldings, and deal with lead paint chips. @paperstreet
