One chapter in my FrameMaker document is aligned to the middle-left of the page. We cannot get the chapter to move the paragraphs included to the left of the page. There is a line in the middle-left where the paragraphs begin, but I cannot click on it or move it. How can I realign the chapter to the left of the page?

Do you mean one chapter title?

A screen shot would make this easy to figure out, but in the meantime, start with the usual suspects. In Basic properties, look for unintended indents or tab stops:

If in a multi-column document, check the Format. It sounds like you might have a 2-column layout but the paragraph isn't set to Across All Columns or Across All Columns and Sideheads, but without more detail, that's just a guess.

Use the button outlined in orange to share a screen shot with your cursor in the paragraph, and View > Text Symbols and View > Borders enabled.

It was the titles and the paragraphs but changing it to Across All Columns and Side Heads worked! Thank you!
