Hi Andy,

 

I had to replace my dust cover for the key and has similar trouble when I reassembled and tested it. The little teeth on the rotating bar that moves the catches back and the teeth on the piece that is pushed by the button had jumped out of sync and relocated in the wrong position, when I pressed the button it didn't move a thing.

 

It's a very fiddly job, the springs and silicon grease in there doesn't help matters but the trick is that you have to get both sets of teeth to mesh properly so that the bar starts to rotate as soon as you press the button in. It took quite a few attempts to get them correctly syncronised. I took the door off to make it easier to work with on a  bench/table top .

Good luck.

 

Dave.

The one I had problems with happened to be a Service Door 5, however, the same push/rotating ratchet bar system is common to quite a few doors in the Thetford range.
