    Hi guys,

    I recently changed the door cylinder to a Yale 3 star one..

    When I close the door, and lift the door handle up I then turn the key around. But I've noticed that it gets stuck....I have to exert **** more pressure to turn the lock around.

    I put the old cylinder in and I don't have this problem.

    I was advised to put Graphite powder in but I suspect that was for if the key gets stuck in. I feel it is the new cylinder is not connecting properly with the mechanism inside the door....

    I would appreciate any tips or if anyone can share their experience.

    Is this a rim lock cylinder or a euro cylinder?
