All of a sudden my door doesn't seem to want to properly close. I've noticed that when I push the door handle all the way down flush (as it should be if the door is shut) it will close fine. But, the handle usually decides to stay open. Does anyone know what is going on here? What needs to be lubricated/replaced?

Thanks!

Sound like something is wrong with the internal mechanism.
I would assume as much. Could you kindly elaborate what you feel the issue might be?

Hard to say without taking it apart, but I would lean toward the handle itself. The alternative is the latch mechanism. You can usually spray/lube up the latch from the outside so you can give that a shot, and if it doesn't work, you're taking the door panel off anyway.
Great, thank you I will try that. I have PB Blaster & WD-40 on hand, thankfully! :smile2:
