The door has stopped latching. The latch does not appear to be damaged, but moves up and down freely. I was given a part number for a spring. How do I check inside the door to make certain this is the part I need?
To open the door to check the spring you would need to use a flat blade to go around the perimeter of the inside of the door and pop inner door out. You will want to inspect the latch for a broken clip that would hold the spring and check for a broken spring.
