About a year ago my suicide door handle broke off; I bought a replacement part and started to repair the boken handle for the good one. When I was trying to open the door, the door wouldn't budge and seemed stuck. I was able to unlock the top part of the door and can see that its free and able to open easily however the bottom part won't budge. I have tried everything I can think of from brute force to wd-40. Nothing seems to make this door get free to open. Am I doing something wrong? I wanted the door open to better access the door handle installiation and realize now that the installiation will be impossible if the door won't open. Any ideas?
