Ordered new door hinge and used available You Tube Video. to assist in installation. Not a very difficult job, however that did not solve the problem. Then in an attempt to complicate the solution, I again removed the door and took the entire inside cover off. The entire latch mechanism fell on the floor. It took a very long time to determine how the latch mechanism was placed. Finally with the help of a neighbor the latch was placed back into position, the glass and screen replaced and finally all the plastic molding seated and screwed tight. Guess what the latch now seated correctly and appears to work correctly.
