Defiant entry door lock problem

I unlock my interior twist lock on my knob. But my exterior know won't turn except with the key. the lock is 1 1/2 years old. and it has happened 3 times. What would cause this?

They are about the cheapest knobs you can buy, that's why. Cheap does not equal quality. Probably some cheap tin has rounded out inside your twist lock. Save up to replace them with a better brand.

I agree and would not waste my time trying to fix it.
I'd just replace it with a Schlage brand knob and be done with it.
