Most common reasons for lock malfunction

Occasionally, you may find your door or window lock sticking, or it could become seized or worn, but the most common issue is that the lock is jamming as it is in the way of the lock hole.

  • Jammed lock– Extreme weather conditions, a broken key that stuck in the lock, excessive rust, are some of the reasons for a jammed lock but don’t worry, we can fix it.
  • Warped door frame– With time and humid weather, decay can take its toll and cause warping of the frame. This will compromise the lock because the locking mechanism will be misaligned.
  • Seized lock– Key will not turn the lock? This is usually a good indication that the lock is seized, probably because some substance blocks it.
  • Faulty key– Of course, the problem might be the key itself. If it is not cut properly, you will find it difficult to insert. Maybe its edges need to be filled down a bit. Please do not try to force it because the key might break and you will only make the problem worse. Which kind of leads us to…
  • The key broke in the lock– Ah, you did force it, didn’t you? Oh well, who knows, it’s probably not your fault anyway. After all, why did it broke in the first place if it was well done?
  • The key is stuck in the lock– This usually happens due to a poorly cut key or some fault of the lock itself.
  • Worn out/broken lock– With the time and use, everything breaks. Even your trusty lock. Eventually, you can start to experience the difficult turning of the key which is a good sign that something is going terribly wrong.
  • Misaligned lock– Maybe the lock itself wasn’t properly installed in the first place and there is some misalignment. The parts don’t fit perfectly and this makes it hard to open or close.
