As any mechanical lock, due to time ware and high usage there could be some problems arising with the locking systems.
The issues may be related to the door frame or the locking system it self.
Usually with my experience working for many years with multi-point system especially in the Toronto area, I have noticed 4 most common potential issues :
Broken teeth – the common reason this could break off is really a regular usage of the entry door. To lock / close the door while having a multipoint Locks system installed you have to pull up on the lever handle to lock the various points quit hard, since it has a weather-stripping rubber wrap the locking has to be done with a controlled force, if to much forced was used over time and the strikes were not installed properly, the force can cause of the damage of the teeth.
Handle brake – Drooping Door Handles – The multipoint handles are assembled with a spring cassette to help the handle to return to horizontal position, to properly operate. If the spring is worn, the locks with the worn spring will cause the handles to downturn / droop and not working properly.
Bolts & Hooks Misalignment – Gearbox misalignment is one of the common problems with lever locks, the mechanical explanation is really simple, while the lock is locked, the gearbox is freely rotating. If the gearbox is misaligned, it wont be able to align itself to the lock’s inner pin.
Locking Mechanism Malfunction – Lock Jammed, the deadbolt and or the latch could stick in the door frame, preventing it from closing or opening as it should. Once again this could be caused due to misalignment due to the wear and tear of the lock cylinder itself, it could happen any time while closing or opening.

avoiding unpleasant situations such as an emergency lockout.
