Exterior Door Stays Locked

I have a basement door that stays locked even though I unlock it. The door knob doesn't move at all. I tried unlocking it with a key outside and the switch inside. It just doesn't budge.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Take off the knobs and see what is going on---all brands are a bit different--so ,without knowing what you have----you will have to see what is broken----

Or just replace it, 10 min. $20.00 fix.

Just replace the knob IMO. Probably something broken or seized up.
