Question about Door Knobs, Handles & Hinges
A heavy child locked my wife out of our house and when he tried to let her back in the house, he held onto the handle and put his entire weight on the handle. It is not a round knob type it, is the handle type. Now the door will not open when the handle is turned even though it is unlocked.
Most likely the door frame is out of alignment due to the force of the weight.
you can try to open the door from the opposite side. push instead of pull.
if that doen't work, use a nail and hammer, remove the pins from the hinges pop open the door off the frame. (have someone braced the door before you push it.)
once you have it open check the alignment of the door frame, and realign it as necessary.
