I have taken apart the handle to try and fix it. The issue is I cannot physically turn the door handle enough to retract the latch. Can I fix this? enter image description here

  • What does the part (still in the door) which this fits into look like? If you jam a large screwdriver (or whatever fits) into that part and rotate it about 45 degrees, does the latch retract appropriately? – brhans Jun 29 '17 at 19:45
  • Yes it does! It's just that (from what I gather) the door handle has a metal piece that prevents it from turning it enough. – Shinobii Jun 29 '17 at 19:47
  • If all I need to do is buy a new inner door piece (or handle set) I guess I can do that relatively cheaply. Just find it strange. – Shinobii Jun 29 '17 at 19:48
  • Aaand - just so we can get the obvious out of the way - if you turn that knob you're holding in the photo over there isn't a little button/twisty-thingy which you can push/toggle/turn ... ? – brhans Jun 29 '17 at 19:52
  • The door insert? It does retract when the door handle is inserted. Just not fully. Is this what you are referring to? – Shinobii Jun 29 '17 at 19:54
