I recently installed a new pella back entry door and storm door.
Pella french door lock issues.
My problem is the storm door only closes correctly as long as the interior door is open, or partialy open.
Multipoint door locks are most often seen at the front entrance, but you can install a system on other doors too.
Once you find out where exactly the problem is you will be able to address it.
Failure to do so may mar the door's finish or frame.
I have several pella doors in my home with the 3 point locks (top and bottom shootbolts and a dead bolt near the handle).
Hopefully someone has an fix for this issue.
Each case of stuck door can have its own challenges and solutions due to the variety of factors that can contribute to this type of situation and because of the many different.
A pella flat screen sliding door may not latch properly if the door is misaligned with the frame's strike, leaving you unable to lock your door.
To replace pella multipoint lock:
The door lock has two latches controlled by one lever and the lower latch was not clearing the stationary bar.
You will have to fiddle around with it, and get the flat had to push on the latch release and open the door.

The locking mechanism on a couple of rarely used doors would hardly work anymore (very stiff and wouldn't lock anymore).
The storm door guy (www.stormdoorguy.com) explains why it is so hard to remove the door latch mechanism from a pella select storm door.

Fixed this problem without cutting or removing door frame metal.
Also open and close the french doors together.
The pella contact suggested removing the screw cover strip on the latch side and removing the 5 screws holding the latch side trim.
