No the door works fine when you put the new handle on but around six months it starts getting hard to open then it really goes down hill fast like this last time it only went a couple weeks and completely broke.
they are cheaply made, usually the latch is the cause if they keep breaking...I would lube the latch very well and make sure it works freely, the reason they break is because the latch is dragging from rust or corrosion or lack of lube, lube it up well and make sure it works freely, they are common to break ...but every 6 months is to frequent
