First, Spray the lock with a light oil (such as the WD-40, you will easily find it in large part of the hardware stores or supermarkets). Do not be afraid to spray too much, but have a piece of paper on hand to recover the excess. Spray the oil directly into the lock cavity and onto all components. Move it so that the oil can enter the lock. Avoid removing the lock when you not sure how to reassemble it.
If the WD-40 was not very useful, check if the latch works when the input is wide open. In this case, the problem is no longer at the lock. It can be an alignment of the door with the frame.
