The latch is mechanical only, so most likely either the latch has failed or your cabinetry is in the way of the door closing for whatever reason. Part is very easy to replace by just taking off the console. I can only advise you on what to look for- investigating and making the repair is up to you. My advice points you in the right direction regardless of whether you can do the work or not as I have no control over your ability.

prior to getting the answer, pulled it apart. Found it was mechanical connected to electrical harness. Think I got it working by cleaning. If not, how do handle and latch disconnect from the electrical harness?
