How To Fix A Door Knob That Turns But Doesn’t Open?

How do you fix a door knob that turns but doesn’t open?

If the bolt moves, but not enough to allow the door to open, the mechanism probably needs lubrication. Look for the set screw on neck of the knob, between the handle and door. It may be on the underside of the knob. Tighten the screw, using the appropriate flathead screwdriver or hex wrench.

What do you do if your door lock is stuck?

Coat your door key with powdered graphite or spray graphite into the keyhole. This acts as a lubricant and may unjam lock tumblers that have become clogged with debris over time. Jiggle the lubricated key in the cylinder if it doesn’t open on the first try.
