Q: Door handle broken

asked by on

The door handle fell off, and the door won't close all the way.

Hello. This is most likely a mechanical issue with one of the components of your door latch assembly. An inspection would need to be completed to determine why your door won’t close all the way. I would suggest you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, come to diagnose your issue and replace your exterior door handle if necessary.
