Would of thought it did, to stop it opening while travelling

They have 2 positions a normal position and a travel position, if you push the handle when shutting the door it locks it into travel position.

It does need quite a tug to open when locked

Not the best design

Sounds like the striker plate may need adjusting.

 

First try pushing the door towards  the fridge itself, and whilst still pushing try using the handle to pull  the door open. This method should release the pressure on the striker plate and alllow the lock to release from the travel position.

 

As has been stated it can need a tug to open from the travel position.

Sorted ! Thanks for all the quick reply’s . It was ice on the inside catch ! The handle was absolutely solid and I thought well that’s it no way of getting into that . But jiggling back and forward and it just popped open without using the handle . Then I saw the ice stopping the catch from moving . Possible condensation build up that had frozen  . In future I’ll make sure that catch is bone dry . Thanks again .
