Most uPVC doors are locked using what is called a multi-point lock. Multi-point locks, lock in several places up the frame of the door when you lift the handle. The action of lifting the handle repeatedly is eventually what causes the locking mechanism to fail. It is not uncommon for a lock to start to fail after around 10-12 years of use.
