When you have to wiggle the key several times to turn it, this is a sign that the cylinder is not working properly. It will be inspected and fixed. Lubrication also contributes to smooth operation. If the cylinder is greatly worn or damaged, it is replaced with a new one that has the same properties. If the latch is jammed, it is released and its normal operation is restored. If the mechanism moving the latch back and forth is damaged, the lockset is replaced.
Sometimes, the door cannot be closed properly because of misaligned strike receiver. It is secured into place with the tightening of the screws that hold it.
