Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.
My handle snapped off (cheap cheap construction). Now model is discontinued. If you can still lock the bowl into place, use the tip of a knife to press down the little switch in the opening where the handle used to be. I've been using mine for 6 months this way after KitchenShop stiffed me on a replacement bowl.
Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.
I have a Logixx with the same problem. Brute force was the answer. You cant lever the tongues out of the way and so cant release the handle gently. Use a piece of wood and lever the handle forward in the same direction as you open the door and it should come off. The new handle then snaps back in. You may need to remove the residue of the old broken part of the clips.
The snap ring is generally found on a Canadian made LUX AP series prior to 1982 and it is in fact a coil spring you must leave the wiring off the handle. Be sure the steel cap and rubber o ring are on the tip of the hose. Slide the handle onto the hose with the hose tip facing upright. then with a small flat screwdriver separate the hooked tip of the spring from its body and run your screwdriver around the spring,feeding it into the groove inside the hose handle, spiraling as you go. similar to how you would feed a key onto a key ring. Before inserting the wire cover try to swivel thew handle it should rotate smoothly. Be very gentle inserting the wire cover pin as it will crack the handle. Use gentle pressure with pliers to start it , then squeeze it into place with your plier jaws fully open. Post back to advise how you have made out
