The mechanism that appears to move the latch on my backyard screen door appears to be broken. Whenever I move the door handle it moves about 1/3 of it’s full extension. I took the door handle apart thinking I’d be able to jimmy it open, but it wont budge. There are no interior hinges that I can remove.
