My house, that is 7 years old now, has matching brass colored Kwikset door handles with locks, on every door.
I was coming home one sunday evening, and after unlocking my front door, the handle would turn, but it wouldn't open. I immediately thought someone was on the other side of the door keeping it closed. Thankfully I had a key to the backdoor. Once inside I saw that the handle would turn but only 2/3rds of the latch bolt would retract.
I took it apart and put it back together, and it is working again, however then the push/turn button lock popped out. I replaced the door handle and wont be using Kwikset in the future.
