If the drawer or the cabinet is out of square, it could cause that. Sometimes, if you have some play side to side, you might compensate a little for that if this is the case. You might shim the back of the left cabinet guide with a card of some kind, which will shift the drawer to the right at the back. This only works if there is some play in the guides. You can also sand the back part of the right drawer side to gain that play. It’s a pain, but it could help.

The guides could also be mounted too far forward on either the cabinet or the drawer. This would put it in a bind—causing that. Move the left side slide back a bit, either on the drawer or cabinet.

There could be other issues, but I would start there.

This is hard to explain—hopefully it is not too confusing. If you have any questions, let me know.
