The screws are located on the non locking side of the handle. To get the cover off most pop off by placing a small screwdriver behind the edge and gently prying. Paint/varnish will make this harder so you my have to take a razor and cut around it.

The answers to your problem are very numerous.
Usually what has happened is that when the lock was installed the pins (the part of the lock that rides on the cut part of the key) were not facing down. This allows dirt and debris to collect in the pin holes and also if a spring breaks it won't push the pin up to the cut part of the key. Some locks you can't even rotate to a position that faces down.
What I suggest is removing the knob or lever lock from the door and blowing out the key hole with compressed air. Work the key back and forth through the lock and blow it out again. If this doesn't work ... try and get a refund or a replacement from wherever you got it. Remember your time is worth money and so is your frustration. Don't waste allot of time trying to fix something that can be replaced relatively cheaply.

You need to take it back off Pull the knobs removing the shaft from the plunger. put the knob with the shaft back in and turn the knob to see it turn in the plunger. sure the doors going to close if it's locked but not being able to turn the knob will not pull the plunger back the lock just stoppes the knob from turning. The knob that has the shaft in it has the two rods that the screws go into these rods go thouhg the holes for them in the plunger not over and under the plunger as you may have done which will cause this problem. You may have the offset set wrong for your door and the holes don't line up. with the shaft out the punger can be set to short and long as needed and if you drilled the door yourself and didn't get it right it won't line up on either setting.

on the inside of the door look on the bottom of the lock cover. There should be a hole with a screw or allen head screw. Remove the screw and you can access the the rest of the lock.
