Hiii,

So I have a sliding patio door that is stuck closed.
The key is turning freely to unlock it but the lever to unlock it is stuck down and will not budge.

Helppppp

Try pushing door closed, if it’s been pulled while locked it may have jammed catch.

Thank you for your reply. I have tried that and it didn’t help.
This is the lock if it’s of any help.

Its going to be either a failed Euro cylinder (lock) or the door mechanism.
Possibly more than a diy repair.
You could possibly test the cylinder by drilling or snapping the old one out but your going to want a spare cylinder handy to but in for security once the old one is wrecked.
If its the mech things get more complicated
