1 Answer


Open other door and inspect its latching mech on the door. Then visually inspect the door that won't close properly. I feel that you will see the latch mech already closed on that door. Use a screw driver or other tool to pry latch mech as you pull on the door handle. When it clicks open you should be able to close the door properly.
