I was having issues with the door catch. It looked worn, so I ordered the $10 (plus $13 shipping) part. Replaced the part, same issues. Figured out the hard plastic door catch was just not designed large enough to keep the door (a.k.a. lid) closed. My brilliant brother suggested I just put a piece of masking tape on the tip of the door catch to enlarge it. Guess what? It resolved the problem. I could have saved $23 and used masking tape that was left in the garage by the previous owner of my house.
