If the door does not close, it is probably because the Y-shaped safety lock is not in the correct position. Can you move it with your finger? Does it move freely? Is the plastic cap missing from it? If you move it into the other position, does the door close properly?
When those locks get old there are a bunch of things that can go wrong with them, but they are not terribly difficult to replace or to repair. --scott
