Only to replace the the latch - there's a switch that's either broken or open. I don't think you can repair it but it's worth a try. I've seen a lot of them.

latch works,, I might have it figured out,, the pull down yoke has two detent tabs,, and its over the tabs not causing it to work,, going to reset the switch,,, wish me luck !
