Check the adjustment shims on the Hinges of the door. You may have to remove or add shims. If you add shims to the bottom hinge the door will rise, if you add shims to the top hinge the door will lower. But be careful not to add to many, it will cause the door to be extended, and vise versa with the removal of shims. If it does not latch you may want to see about haveing the latch replaced. Also, check to see if the door latch is engaged while the door is open. If it is simply left the handle and use a screw driver to lift the latch back into position.
