HELP re Dead Bolt Lock

The dead bolt lock on my new A192HW won't engage. It appeared the latch plate was too high, but there is no adjustment up and down. Couldn't latch it with key or with the inside handle. I took the latch plate off and filed it down a bit. Now, it will latch but not far enough to remove the outside key. The inside handle now works, as it doesn't need to turn to it's extreme end. My question is----does the metal frame where the latch strikes have a hole completely through two layers of metal or just the outside metal piece? I don't want to make a hole/cuts in the metal if it isn't necessary. If you could look at your unit, it would be MUCH appreciated. Taking it to the dealer would be the last resort, as he is 3.5 hrs away. An all day trip, if he repaired it the same day, otherwise, two trips. Thanks.

Problem Solved

Strange lock for sure. Couldn't turn key completely to left so key could be removed. With door open, the key would turn completely and the key could be removed with the deadbolt fully extended. Just found out, to lock deadbolt, turn key 45 degrees to the left and then backup the key to 90 degrees and the key can be removed. The upper lock key needs to be turned in the opposite direction to lock. All this, with the same key. Live and Learn!
