latch Makes a Loud Click When Handle Depressed

Postby ollytheowl » Thu Jul 26, 2018 2:48 pm

Hello, The latch on out bedroom door makes a loud click when the handle is depressed (the noise is enough to wake me up at night). I have changed the handles and taken the latch from another door , that did not click. The latch still clicks when the handle is depressed on the bedroom door. BUT, the door with the old clicky latch is now silent. Is there a problem with the door or the recess for the latch is too tight?
