Baldwin 6321 mortise:when locked can open from either side
I installed the baldwin mortise 6321 and glass knobs and keyed outside bolt. When I lock the door from inside and bolt is extended, you can turn the outside knob an the door will open and the bolt will recess thanks

It sounds as if the lock is installed backwards or more specifically in inside mechanism. The inside lever/handle when turned should retract the deadbolt (safety feature). If yours does not currently switch around.

it would depend on the door knob construction and what was stiff inside it.
The problem could be part of the handle or part of the lock mechanism.
For a typical indoor door lever handle, undo the screws on the face plate and take the handle off and oil as appropriate. You may have oil handles on both sides of the door.
For a rotating door knob handle there is generally a single screw on the underside of the knob
For a lock mechanism, you could just spray oil inside the mortise moving part (you wouldn't have to dismantle anything to do this!).
However to dismantle it, you'll need to remove handles on both sides of the door, remove the square bar that slots between both handles and remove the lock mechanism (you may have to remove locating screws that exist on the mortise face. If lock mechanism is user serviceable then there will be screws to undo to allow it to be dismantled. If none exist then it is probably worth buying a new one.
You have the lever that goes from the key cylinder part of the lock through the striker portion of the locking assembly turned part way, either in the wrong direction or not turned enough in the right direction so if you take the inside portion of the lock off and pull the outside portion out of the door and rotate the lever to its proper position and then put if all back together in the correct sequence it should work properly.
Lower the window, use a wedge to pry the two door halves open a bit. Try spraying the lock and all link arms etc, with WD40. It may also be possible to reach down with a bar etc and pull the lever that's not moving to pop the lock open. Just work slowly and carefully so you don't bend the door out of shape or break the glass.
If the opening is on the side, it probably comes off by pushing a small tool (pick or large paper clip) into the hole while turning the key. When you feel the pin move, pull on the knob and it should come off.
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.
Hope I can help! I have worked with Emtek before and some of the front plates are secured with screws from the the other side of the door. You may want to check if this is the case. if so remove the screws so you can remove the exterior plate. Best of luck. Hope this works!
