My Coldseal DG back door has locked shut. The handle more or less turns around 360 degrees and the locking mechanism is engaged. How do I release the locking mechanism to enable me to open the door to change the lock?
The key still works as normal. I have taken the handle off and can see the square hole the bar passes through but it spins in its housing.
I have been offered an Â£80 call out plus an estimate of Â£600 for a new door which seems a bit steep.
It's ok!! Now sorted. I never thought it could be cured in that way. Well...you live and learn. I guess i was just lucky to meet this particular repairman who managed to sort the problem out for one tenth of the cost I was first quoted! And in such an imaginative way!!! It has restored my faith in the English workman anyway. What a brilliant yet simple solution!
