Inside the lock-hole on the left side (towards the handle), there is a black "latch" (sorry, english isnt my mother tongue so maybe there's a better word) that the handle pulls when you pull the handle, and when you release the handle it is supposed to push back. Mine got stuck in the "pulled" position even when the handle was released, so i sprayed it with WD-40 where there looked to be a joint (hard to see in there) and after that it has worked.
I "massaged" it a bit to loosen it up by pulling and pushing manually until it pushed back.

I guess a more sticky lubricant than WD-40 could be a good idea.
Well done. I will try this at the weekend. Thanks for the update.
