In some cases, lubricating the mechanism can help to resolve sticking issues. When the handle is physically broken, it's crucial to replace it with a compatible one to ensure your door's security and functionality.

A broken gearbox lock in a multipoint system can prevent the door from locking or unlocking. The gearbox is central to the multipoint locking system, transmitting the turning force from the handle to the multiple locking points. If you're facing difficulty operating the handle or notice the locking points aren't engaging, the gearbox might be the culprit. Replacement is often the most reliable solution, but ensure you choose a compatible gearbox for your system. Most Multipoint locks allow for just the gearbox to be removed with simple screws.
