Door latch or knob?


I have a door that leads outside to the patio. When I turn the inside handle, the latch moves properly. When I turn the outside handle, the latch will not move at all. Does this seem like there is a problem with the handles, or with the latch?

You need to remove the latch handle from both sides. Then you will be able tell if something is worn out or maybe just some lubrication is needed.
