Door Latch

Is anyone having problems with their door latches sticking or operating roughly? Mine are terrible, don't want to unlatch with the handle pull.

Can only recall it happening once which was remedied by applying a little lubricant to the door latch assembly followed by opening and closing the door a few times. Hopefully, a solution for you is just as simple and the following thread has some great information.

Is this a year round issue or just during the winter?

Lithium grease the door latches from time to time, the door handle just connects to a cable that goes to the latch.
