Hi,

The catch on my Yale door lock back door has stopped fully retracting into the lock when the handle is fully depressed. Which prevents the door from opening. If I turn the key further at this point it will retract.

Is there any internal adjustment on the lock to alter the amount of retraction so that I can restore the original behaviour - i.e. retracting sufficiently to open the door for several years?

Many thanks!

Pete

With the door open does it extend/retract fully ?

No. That's the issue! :-) The photo was taken holding the handle all the way down. Previously, and with all my similar doors (I have the same locks on several) the catch (is that the right description - it's the bit pointed to by the speech bubble in my image?) retracts all the way into the lock when the handle is depressed.

Sorry for my unclear op and thanks for taking the time to reply!

Pete

First thing to check would be the screw in the middle is tight. If so then the internal handle wants removing and check the spindle for wear...

aye could be a loose screw. its how you change it from left to right hand for different doors.

or the gearbox could be goosed. easy enough to change usually if that is the case

Adjust the nib, pull the handles off and check to see it the nib full retracts if it does the handle(s) are worn

Its more than likely the door has dropped and the gap between the door and frame has closed up over time

In my experience, as said, check the handle-to-square spindle connection (a small allen screw at the handle itself).

Again in my experience, this type of door uses inferior handles of a soft metal (monkey metal, cheap) so tightening up will resolve - in the short term. Replace the handles.

As bob225 says, also check the alignment, vertically, between the "mortice" and the "tenon".
