Entry Door Lock Replacement

My entry door plunger broke. You could not open the door at all until I used a knife to pry open the plunger from the inside. Once I did it the door opened and the plunger fell out. I ordered a new one on Amazon and put it in myself this week. It was not too hard but I will make sure this one gets opened every so often and new grease gets put on it. The inside was dirty and all the grease was gone. It is pretty easy to take the 3 screws off from the inside and open it up to lubricate and inspect. I had to in through a window to get into the MH. It was a pain.

Generally lock cylinders are not lubricated other than with a dry lubricant i.e. graphite or silicone as petroleum based grease will hold dirt and dust. Was the lock a Fastec/FIC under recall?

It was a Tri Mark lock. The door lock has two keys.

When I opened it up I was surprised there was no grease left on the internal parts. Lots of dirt. I would suggest that people take it apart and grease. It is pretty easy to remove the inside plate.
