Is the circular slotted piece that engages the bar on the striker plate
stuck (i.e. the door won't close far enough) or free to rotate back and fore
i.e. the door closes fully but springs open again?  If the former then free
the stuck item, if the latter then the rod from the opening handle is jammed
in the open position, or something inside the lock ditto.  Buying new is a
last resort in my book.
