Good afternoon my name is ***** ***** will assist with your query.

Most likely the door handle may have failed, or the new interlock hasnt been aligned properly.

To get the door open (as a workaround) please follow the video here.

A new latch for the door would be around £20, if you provide me with the part I can direct you to the exact part on espares.

Regards

James

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
Nicola
