My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
This may be a fault with the key cylinder itself not releasing the lock properly when trying to rotate the key.I would have this checked into/tested to see if the cylinder is the cause needing replaced to correct this here.
Thanks Pete
