Forum Title: Andersen French door lock issue
I have an outswing Andersen patio door which has the 3-point lock (pull the handle up, then turn the deadbolt). Recently it is not locking smoothly--sometimes I have to reopen and close and pull the handle up again before I can turn the knob. Is there a simple adjustment I need to make?

I know you don't want to hear it, but reframe the opening to 61 1/2, basically taking off the trim and adding lumber to the sides, filling in the wall cover/sheetrock, and replacing the trim. Trim will take up 1 1/2.

If the installer left the manual, check that for diagnosing/adjusting problems. If not, check thier website for the manual. Those doors have several adjustments, making the wrong one can cause worse problems.
