Have to say...I think we'll need some pics...How To Put Pictures In Your Post - DoItYourself.com Community Forums Most likely there is crud and stuff locking it in somehow. Might even have been caulked in place.
If you can remove the whole thing just toss it and buy new knob set. Builders put on the cheapest knobs you can buy. Buy a Schledge brand and never have to mess with it again.
Chandler ... Photos will help, I'm sure. I've loaded up four of them, each with some annotation. You can see that it is a pretty standard door knob with lock. This set goes on the door to my garage. I can lock the door from inside the house, and use a key (when needed) on the garage side of the door to let myself into the house. Image A shows the interior side of the knob with the rotating lock lever. Image B shows the garage side of the knob with its key hole. Image C shows the side-on angle of the door and the knob. Center foreground are the two latches (I think that's what they are called) that keep the door shut and locked. Neither of these spring-loaded latches can be pushed into the door, as is normal. Turning the door knob is not possible. The smaller of the two latches feels very loose. It seems to still have a bit of spring, but it feels as if something has broken inside the latch mechanism. I can wiggle the smaller latch quite a bit even though it will not recede into the door. Image D shows the spindle and the latch mechanism from the inside view. That is, I've removed the inside portion of the door knob (Image A). While I can wiggle the outside door knob quite a bit, and push the spindle in a short distance, I cannot pull the spindle out. Somehow it is stuck. I've tried coming at it from a bunch of angles .... used the flat of a screwdriver to try and force the mechanism, etc., ... but to no avail. I can't budge it. Nothing is rusted, and the entire door knob/lock mechanisms appear to be in good working order (except for the fact that they don't work). There is no rust or immediately apparent damage. Hope this extra information can help you help me. Thanks for asking .... and I'll look forward to hearing from you or someone else in the forum. Here are the photos ...
