The operating instructions on the ES20 as per the crappy manual:

Open safe using emergency key provided

Insert batteries in the box inside the door

Opening the safe
a. pre-set factory code 159
b. input 159 (the yellow light will flash and the buzzer will beep), then press B or A button, the green light will be on, rotate the knob clockwise, pull outwards, the door is opened

Closing the safe: close the door, input the code (the green light will flash for 5 secs). Turn the knob anti clockwise, the control system will activate and the safe will be locked

Changing the code: open the safe, press the red button located inside the door, the yellow light will go on indicating the code can be changed. Input the new code (1-8 digits), then press A or B button, it shall be confirmed by two beeps indicating the new code has been accepted and stored. If the yellow light and buzzer beeps 3 times the code is invalid - try again

Emergency Key - store in secure place NOT inside the safe. Remove the override cover in the centre of the face of Safe (its a silver plastic panel with Sandleford Electronic Safe ES20 on it), insert override key (a cyclinder key) - hidden underneath the override cover panel - and turn anti clockwise, rotate the knob clockwise to open door

Changing the Battery - If the red and green light are on this indicates that the batteries are low and require changing. To ensure the batteries have been installed correctly test before closing the door

    TY TY TY, Safe now working again and fully operational. Key can now go back to its hiding spot. I'll write a short note for mum to keep in the safe. and one to keep instruction manuals in the filing cabinet.

    if the safe isnt mounted (USELESS ANYWAY) use a wire to hit the reset button inside. add new code and hit the bottom left or right button. if not I used a hole saw in the back of mine and opened it. its covered at the back when mounted anyway as I only use the safe for stuff I dont want the kids to get to. you will never stop the smart theif stealing anything in a house when its not secure. 20 years locksmithing and working with home security

Sandleford safe lost key & forgotten code need my passport inside urgently

You'll have to call out a locksmith who may have to destructively open your safe.

Your safe wouldn't be much use if it could simply be opened using simple instructions from the internet. Sorry, but we can't fix everything from here.
