I had the latch problem due to ice building up and allowing my latch to slip. I took a thin piece of sheet metal and cut 2 pieces and bent L brackets that fit the latch and thickened it. Wrapped it up with a bit of duct tape so the ice wouldn't build up much and haven't had a problem since. I'll eventually buy a new paddle mechanism but for now my money can go elsewhere without having to deal with a stuck door.
