Youve probably solved the problem by now but i would use a spanner or molegrips on the spindle to turn it, fitting a new one would have fitting instructions included.

Door knob stem stuck


You may have to apply Liquid Wrench or equivalent to free up the spindle. Tap the end of the spindle gently with a hammer to break the rust or corrosion loose. You will then have to prevent the mechanism from turning as you work the old spindle free. Be careful to avoid damaging the lock mechanism in such a way that installation of the new spindle will be difficult

How to put the striker from a door knob kit back together


i can help you with that...just follow this steps...
1.Remove the old doorknob by taking out the screws that hold it in. You will have to remove the striker separately by removing the screws that hold the strike plate in place on the outside edge of the door. Slide the striker out.
2.
Take the new doorknob, striker, and strike plate out of the packaging and look for the directions. (Most doorknobs are installed in the same way, but there are always exceptions.)

3.
Slide the striker bar into the hole. Insert the screws into the striker plate and tighten.

4.
ake the two halves of the doorknob, and place the one with the male end through the hole in the striker bar. Place the female side of the doorknob on the other side of the door and make sure that it lines up with the male end. Slide the two together. Screw the knob together using the two long screws that came with the doorknob. Make sure that the screws are tight. Make sure that you have the lock facing the right direction. You want the locking mechanism on the inside of the house or room.

5.
Test your work before you shut the door. Make sure that both sides of the door knob turn and the striker bar goes back and forth.

Sitting room door has closed shut and won't open. Hinges are on the other side and I have removed the handle from my end and it appears that a spring in the inside latch has broken.


Now you can put your standard screwdriver in the hole in the middle of the metal where you removed the doorknob, turn the screwdriver, and now your door will open.

I need to find a mechanism for a door handle where the knob is situated in the middle of the door (like european doors) ...any ideas where i can find this type of door knob and mechanism?


I am in the same boat here, mine is also in the middle of the door and my doorknob is broken. Ahh. I can still re-attach and open if I play with it. I have talked with several locksmiths who don't know what I'm talking about. I know my bolt mechanism was made by "Weiser" Home was built back in 1975. Have you had any luck at finding any help with this? From end of door to middle is 18" and the mechanism is 19".

Broken door knob. no access to hinges, screws. Rental property!


Take apart a similar doorknob in your house. Use the stem with knob on it and insert into the square hole in the lock--turn!

Bathroom doorknob stuck in locked position.


Hello,

I will tell you how to fix 'em. Open the Door Knob with a screw driver, gently pull aart the two knobs once open, then look for a long sliding rod, pull one knob away, twist the Knob untlil it is in unlock position, put them back together to test if it slips properly. If it does not, there is something preventing the rod from rotating freely. Try to ensure it rotates freely. Then screw back together :)

Doorknob sticks in 'lock' position-but no real 'lock' feature


If this is the lock part itself,try gradually loosening install screw enough to be able to manuver lock to work and if so slowly tighten as you test each time gradually. Please clarify problem more if need to.

Stuck Door Knob with No Access!


I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe

you can go to any home center of hardware store to get a automtic door closer. (spring loaded hinge). that will altumatically close the door, that will prevent the door stay open and bash into each other.
there is no door stopper is big or long enough to do the trick.
