Squeaky Door Handles
« on: May 07, 2019, 10:59:58 am »
Recently moved into a new build in the Nottinghamshire area, had tons of problems, most rectified but shouldn't have happened, but don't want to open that can of worms all over again.

Just a quick one, has anyone experienced really squeaky door handles?
I've tried WD40 to stop the squeak, but the squeak soon comes back. I don't trust the builder to rectify this issue, and I can't help but feel I might need to buy new door handles.

It might be the metal parts on the latch. 
You can take them off and add some grease which might help.
