Sentry s3877 battery compartment broke

Hello,
I have a model s3387. The plastic battery compartment that holds the 4 AA batteries broke. I am able to hold it together good enough to get the safe opened. I would like to buy a new battery compartment and cut the wires to the broken one and wire in the new one. Any idea where I can buy a replacement battery compartment???
Thanks

I had the same problem with my Sentry S3877. I found the exact 4-battery replacement (with snap attachment on top!) at an online electronics.retailer, but had to purchase a lot of three. I don't need the other two, so I'll sell them for just $6 each to the first two folks to contact me mark@irregardless.net.

Oh, by the way, once the batteries went dead, you lost your combination! When you pop the new battery compartment in, the factory default combination will be in effect. That default combination is in your user's manual. I'm currently searching frantically for mine! Gee, how could I have misplaced it ... I just had it in my hands when I purchased the safe 10 years ago !!!

Anyone know the default combo for the S3877?

How do I get my Sentry Safe S3877 to open when one of the wire is dangling from the battery pack?


Check, you are connecting to the correct spot. That is the place the wire broke off.
It could be you only are using 2 or 3 from the four batteries. Then the voltage is always to low.
Then check you got the right batteries. Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries. They don't have enough capacity and can start leaking.

How do I open a sentry s3877 safe when the battery is dead and safe is closed


The factory code combination to your electronic lock will remain in the memory of the unit - even if the batteries go dead. Any use programmed codes will be lost if the batteries lose power. The Sentry programmed factory code is always your default code.

If you do not know your factory code, you can follow this link for your combination retrieval:

We have a S3877 Sentry safe. The battery appears dead so I can't use the code. I also have the key but since the battery is dead it is no help. What can I do?

Somehow can open my sentry s3877 with the keypad.


A Safe and Vault Tech Will confirm that once you change the batteries the user code will erase and you will now have to enter the factory default that is in the owners manual and then use the programing instructions to program a new user code.

Sentry safe S3877 have key and know combination but battery dead


Use paperclip to push in pin size hole below keyboard and then slide panel to right. Battery box is right there. Replace batteries and then was already to accept code.

Battery connectors broke


Hey there NewYork691,

I'm from Long Island. The name is Mike and I may be able to give you a more economical solution.

From your description, it sounds like one of the contact that connect the (+) of one battery to the (-) of the next battery broke. If that's what happened, no worries, you'll be fixed in no time.

Find yourself a penlight, remote or any other device that uses AA batteries that you aren't going to miss. Open up the battery compartment and remove one of the spring contacts.

You may have to hunt around to find something similar, but all it has to do is fit in and make contact. The compartment cover will hold the batteries in.

You should be back in business.

Mike
