Make sure that the door latches securely without slamming it. If necessary, adjust the striker (A) by moving it up and down or in and out before fixing the striker nuts.

Lightly tap on the striker with a plastic hammer just enough to give some adjustment.
3.
Hold the outer handle out, and push the door against the body to be sure the striker allows a flush fit. If the door latches properly, tighten the screws and recheck.
