well, look and see if the striker has slipped back, then, look at the latch, it might be engaged if it is, stick a screw driver in it and pull the handle to release it using the screw driver as the striker.

There will be screws on the hinge either where it attaches the outer shell if the hinge pins go into the door itself, or on the door where the hinge is screwed to the door.
You might want to just check to see if there is a plate above the door on the side that opens- does ithave a hole in it? If so- you can drop a metal dowel pin in the hole to securely hold the door shut This was the way they were made not too long ago.
Alternately you should be able to adjust the latch hook itself by loosening the 2 screws that hold it, or the catch can sometimes be adjusted by loosening the jam nut and making the adjustment by turning the catch like you do on commercial refrigeration catches.
Also, look at the door itself- is it sagging from loose or bent hinges? sometimes correcting that can solve the issue.
Lastly, there is the brut force aproach, buit not always a good idea because there is so much plastic and light sheet metal involved things can break or tear loose. But once in a while a careful application of some modest force to the catch loop or hook with a supporting block of wood, or careful placement of the prying tool on the screw heads of the hook or loop to get it to more securely catch can sometimes be the remedy.
Last option- Industrial velcro. If all else fails, this can be the simple solution.
