Last time I had this problem, I whacked it shut hard
enough I thought the glass was going to break.  It did't
do it.  I ended up holding the door shut as hard as I could
until the latch caught.  It didn't work this time though.


If you can't get the latch to click using a screwdriver, chances are slamming door won't do it either. 
Mechinism needs to be heated, maybe with hair dryer, and then water displacing juice squirted in there. Maybe need to remove latch from door to thaw & lube proberly. I've used REMOIL wth success, even in cold.
A broken window would really make your day. Good luck.
