Inside the door where the latch hooks.

The easiest fix is to just spray some wd-40 into the latch area on the door (again, where it actually hooks) and then open and close the door a few times. You'll have to do it on all the doors unless you know which one is the problem.

I have to do this about every 6 months or so.

Very good advice, I have found this to work many times in the past.

One other tip, don't forget the back door... that can sometimes be the problem but is easily overlooked.

Honestly, I'm not sure, I just spray them all for good measure.

The back door has been the problem more times then not, but I've also had other doors cause the problem too.
