basement door stuck

Please help! Our door to access the water tanks will not open. The latch opens, but the door itself is stuck shut. Does anyone have any ideas to try? Thanks!

A few thoughts.

Can you tell what's causing it to be stuck?

After being in storage, ours get stuck to the weather strip. They just need a bit more pull to open them up.

Are you sure the latch is open? The inside latch may not spin when the key spins if the cam is slipping.

Try pushing in on the door before unlocking and unlatching.

Can you crawl in from the other side to see what's binding?

Hope that helps.

From what we can tell, the latch seems to have disengaged from the mechanism; it doesn't appear to be releasing the pin from the u-shaped bolt. Unfortunately, no, this is not one of the bays that goes all the way across.
