Hi, the latch is broken. It's common. You will have to push up on the latch at an angle from both sides and pull out and push in on the door at the same time. I've seen this issue multiple times in the field the latch needs replaced for sure. I work on the honor system here @ Just Answers. Please remember to rate my answer positively before logging off.
