Those magnetic latches are plastic and can break fairly easy. Look very closely at the latch on the compartment side and I bet you will find that one of the little tabs is broken. Very easy and inexpensive part to replace. If you talk to your service guy the right way he may even give you one or replace it for you. Like I said though, it's cheap to replace even if you have to pay for it.
