Door locks sometimes freeze up owing to everyday use and accumulation of dirt. Or maybe keys are not working anymore.
Reasons for lockout.
Sticky door locks, or keys may fail to work or get stuck in the knob. This happens when the cylinder inside a door lock is blocked. The magic happens inside the cylinder. It controls its overall mechanism. A corrupted cylinder can result in a host of problems including the key not turning in the lock. This in most cases requires professional help, but here are a few things you can try.
Using the wrong key happens too! This is actually one of the most common problems when it comes to a failed door lock cylinder. The key and cylinder work hand in hand and if either is on the verge of wearing out, you may find yourself using excessive force to unlock the door. If the issue is neglected and not taken care off immediately, it may result in an irreparable cylinder and door lock.
