Diagnosing UPVC door problems:

If the Key won’t turn fully in the lock this means the lock is faulty or there is an alignment issue with the door & frame being out of alignment. Common reasons this happens are usually because the lock is worn or faulty, or there is a door alignment issue. Other issues can include if a cheap lock has been fitted, general wear and tear on the door, or a foreign object has been inserted into the lock. To remedy the issue, the lock will need to be replaced once the door has been unlocked & opened, a replacement lock can then be fitted along with new keys.

If you find that the key goes in lock & turns but won’t open, this usually means the multi-point lock has failed or a security bolt or hook has jammed. You might need a new multipoint locking system and or door alignment adjustment.

If you find the keys go in to your UPVC lock but have to jiggle them to get the lock to work, it is usually a sign of badly cut keys or a faulty or worn euro lock.
