Sounds like the latch assembly is broken or dirty. Try spraying some WD-40 into it if it's dirty to free it up.

Tom has the right answer, that's what i was thinking, when i read the question!! The lithium grease, that is in there, attracts alot of dirt and dust, especially on the spring and latch....
