Locks & Locksmithing - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals

You can try contacting the manufacturer. If the combination hasn't been changed, they may provide you with the combo for a fee once you prove it's your safe. If they don't want to deal with you, you can get a locksmith to request the combo. If neither of these options work, check to see if there is a layman group of safe and lock pickers in your area. They might take the project on for the challenge. Good luck!

yes could have frozen, unlikely . I have found that exterior doors usually close tighter with the weatherstripping pushing against the door effectively preloading the back set
( latch mechanism) causing pressure on the latch components. sounds to me like your tumbler connection to the back set has malfunctioned for some reason, take it apart and check the little flat bar that goes from one side of the lock to the other and make sure it is correctly inserted into the thumb turn on the inside of the door.

Probably not! Sounds like something was damaged besides the plug. Clicking could be a tooth on the gear was damaged and now slips. The way I repair or determine what's wrong with locks is to take them off and start by manually operating the strike and then check / test the rest of the lock as I assemble it back to the door. If the gear is damaged, you should be able to see that once the lock is disassembled. Cross your fingers you find some debris in the lock and thats all....

The safe maker has a list of the codes, and you can purchase back up keys for them generally. It varies how tha works by company, but you can go online with the serial number, which is often stamped in the metal outside the safe, and with that, and typically some other information, get a key to open the safe mailed to you. Otherwise, call a lock smith. They may be able to help you directly.

I would recommend taking the deadbolt back to wherever you purchased it from and exchanging it for a new one. It sounds like you got a defective unit.

Just so there’s no confusion, this website is a general question-and-answer site for anyone who needs help fixing something. It’s not the customer service website for the manufacturer or retailer you got your deadbolt from. I do not represent the manufacturer or the retailer. I’m just a random guy on the internet trying to help out. :)
