I am trying to model my building (4 story) with OS using the Floor Space JS to create the model. However, when I am trying to add doors to the second floor, it is doing a weird job (as shown). Could you please let me know how can I fix it?

It looks like we can't access the file due to permissions.

@shorowit May I have your email that I can send you the model? It is my research project so I am not sure if I can share it here.

I took a quick look at your file and see where you got confused regarding the overlapping stories. You specified space heights of 12 ft for the first story and 16 ft for the second story, while the stories themselves have heights of 8 ft. In FloorSpaceJS, the idea is that the stories stack on top of each other, and you only need to provide space heights if you want to override the story height to model, say, 2-story spaces. So I recommend that you expand the Stories pane, update the heights to to be 12 & 16 ft respectively, and delete all the space height inputs. That should fix the overlapping issue.

That said, I agree that something appears wrong with the doors on the 2nd story. I filed a bug report here:
