Question Entry Door Tri-Mark 030-0900 stuck closed

All of a sudden my door won't open with the paddle (outside handle) it will open with the inside handle that you pull up. Does anyone know how to fix this or adjust it?
I have a Fleetwood Jamboree Class C 2006.
When you pull it out it isn't disengaging the lock mechanism.

When I have any door mechanism that doesn't work smoothly anymore I always WD-40 the bejeebers out of it. Then wipe off the excess WD and work the mechanism a few times and forget about it for several more years..! Hope it works as well for you..........

Quite often we have to push in on the door while pulling the paddle lever. A light lubricant helps a lot. FWIW, WD40 dries and leaves a sticky film over time, once the flammable carrier completely evaporates it begins to dry out. My Dad gummed up a 150 year old clock by using WD 40 on the works, and that was the clockmakers diagnosis.

I have a 65 Mustang that got so I couldn't start it at times due to the ignition switch sticking. I shot WD-40 into it and flushed it out, and it worked like new. That was nearly 20 years ago! I use WD on everything that needs freed up, and have never had any negative consequences as you describe. I've also never seen even a hint of the "sticky film" you describe. After using WD literally thousands of times, there have been few (if any) times where I saw no improvement. I have a clock hanging on the wall in my garage that didn't work when I got it 7-8 years ago. Guess what I fixed it with...??

I'm thinking that with a 150 year old clock, who knows what all had happened to the interior workings. Kinda thinking it's problems may have started a long time before WD-40 was invented.
