Deadbolt becomes stuck without a lot of force.
This sounds like the fit between the thumbturn and the bolt is compromised. If you pull out the thumbturn, take a look at the flat metal blade that fits into the rectangular or "8" shaped hole in the deadbolt mechanism. I think this has become bent or misshapped somehow. Or maybe the hole has a rough burr on it. You might be able to flatten the blade with a hammer and anvil or maybe dress up the problem with a file. Good luck.

The bolt would not turn so I unscrewed the back
The bolt may be bound against the side of the frame plate. If both sides are off the deadbolt, use a flat blade screw driver to turn the lock to the unlocked position while turning the knob and jiggling the door. If the key simply does not turn, the cap nut around the cylinder needs to be tightened. It should be tightened all the way, then loosened until the pin is in the first notch back.

Is there any way to change the battery on a Trumeter 5505E measuring whee
5505E MEASUREMETER BATTERY CHANGE (3V CR-2032)
REMOVE WHEEL AND SHAFT BY GENTLY PULLING AXLE OUT OF UNIT.
DRILL OUT 7 PLASTIC HEADS WITH 3/16 DRILL BIT. (ABOUT 1\8 DEPTH)
SPLIT TWO SIDES OF CASE AND REMOVE HANDLE.
SLIDE OUT CLEAR PLASTIC CONTROL UNIT. PUSH DOWN ON BUTTONS AS YOU REMOVE SO AS NOT TO DAMAGE THEM.
PUSH DOWN SLIGHTLY TOWARD THE CASE ON LOCK TABS WHILE GENTLY PULLING CASE APART. START ON ONE END AND WORK YOUR WAY TO OTHER END. KEEP GASKET INTACT. OPEN CASE.
THERE IS A "Y" SHAPED RETAINER HOLDING IN THE BATTERY. WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS, CAREFULLY SLIGHTLY SQUEEZE THE BOTTOM OF THE "Y" AND PULL UP GENTLY. YOU CAN NOW REMOVE THE BATTERY AND INSTALL THE NEW ONE. PUSH RETAINER DOWN TO LOCK BACK IN.
MAKE SURE GASKET IS IN PLACE AND PUT CASE BACK TOGETHER, MAKING SURE WHEEL ADAPTER IS IN PROPER PLACE. TURN ON AND TEST CONTROL UNIT AND TURN WHEEL ADAPTER TO MAKE SURE UNIT IS WORKING PROPERLY.
SLIDE CONTROL UNIT BACK IN BEING CAREFUL OF THE BUTTONS. RE-ASSEMBLE HANDLE AND PUT THE TWO SIDES OF THE CASE TOGETHER. I USED THREE PIECES OF ELECTRICAL TAPE TO HOLD CASE TOGETHER. ONE ON THE TOP BETWEEN THE TWO HOLES, ONE ON THE BOTTOM JUST ABOVE THE DISPLAY, AND ONE IN THE MIDDLE.
PUT THE PLASTIC PIECE IN THE HOLE AND LINE UP. MAKE SURE BOTH O-RINGS ARE ON THE AXLE SHAFT. GENTLY INSERT AXLE ALL THE WAY IN WHILE ROTATING IF NECESSARY.
I WAS SO HAPPY I HAD IT ALL BACK TOGETHER AND WORKING, I HADN'T TAKEN ANY PICTURES AND I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE TAKING IT ALL APART AGAIN. MIGHT ADD PICTURES LATER IF NEEDED. I HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR YEARS ON HOW TO CHANGE THE BATTERY, AND I FINALLY MADE UP MY MIND THAT I WAS GOING TO DO IT.

You can try the following: 1# Check the main power cable & make sure it has 110V (Do not run the machine with long extension cable).2# Check all harness connection.3# Check keyboard cable connection on back of control board.4# If all the cable connection is good then you may need to replace the control board.
