I put in my combintaion, the batteries are good, the lock shows unlocked, but the handle will not move

I would say try replacing the battery holder. A1 Locksmith Burlingame CA 94010 have Sentry safe locks, keys, battery holders, battery door covers, and door handles. New parts reclaimed from damaged freight returns. But only a small supply in stock.

Have an electronic safe, am putting the correct code in but the safe is not opening and the red and yellow lights are coming on and safe is beeping. I put new batteries in but still no use.

Red light means low batteries. the only thing that worked for me was heating the safe to help the batteries recover a bit and it opened!

Please follow these steps
Programming a user code
There are two ways to program a user code.
A 1. Press the Program key.
2. Enter the Factory Code. The green LED remains ON
while you enter the 5-digit user code of your choice.
After 5 digits are entered the green LED turns OFF.
(To enter a new User Code, repeat these steps.)
B 1. Press the red button inside the safe. The lock will
beep and the green LED will come on.
2. Enter a 5-digit user code.
(To enter a new User Code, repeat these steps.)
Keep your new user code secure.
For your records, please copy it here:
____ ____ ____ ____ ____
Programming a password
1. Press the Program key.
2. Press it a second time.
3. Enter your 5-digit User Code. The green LED remains ON.
4. Enter the 5-digit Password of your choice (any combination
except 00000.) After 5 digits are entered, the green LED
turns OFF.
(To enter a new Password, repeat these steps. To erase the
Password, press Program twice, enter your User Code and then
enter 00000.)

Battery replacement
Below When old batteries are removed for replacement, your Password will be voided; only Factory and User Codes will work. To
reestablish your Password, follow the directions above under
Programming a Password.
Key override
If your electronic lock fails or you do not have any codes
available, you may use a key override to access this unit.
1. Remove the battery cover, disconnect and remove the
battery holder.
2. Insert the skeleton key (second set of keys provided)
into the key hole inside the opening for the battery.
3. Turn the key to the right.
4. Turn the four bit key to the right.
5. Open the door.
Your electronic-lock safe communicates by means of several
audio/visual signals.
Red (Error) LED + three beeps indicates
one of the following:
1. You have pressed Program key out of sequence
2. You have entered an invalid code or password.
3. You have let 5 seconds or more elapse between key entries.
Green (Proceed) LED + single beep occurs
1. After entering each digit of Factory or User Code, or
2. After pressing Clear key
3. After pressing Program key
Green LED only
1. Comes on after you enter a valid code/password and
remains lit during the 4-second period in which the safe
can be opened.
2. Comes ON in the Program User Code mode after you enter
the Factory Code and remains lit until you have finished
entering a 5-digit User Code.
3. Comes ON in the Program Password mode after you have
entered your User Code and remains ON until you have
entered a 5-digit password.
Yellow LED
Indicates low battery and will typically not turn ON until
battery has been in use approximately two years or longer.
Your electronic lock automatically performs a low battery test
during each lock use.
If a �low battery� condition is detected the Yellow LED will
come ON and remain ON during each subsequent lock
operation. (The lock will continue to function in a Low Battery
state, until battery failure.) The Yellow LED will turn OFF only
after three consecutive Good Battery readings or after the low
batteries are replaced. (Note: If the new batteries are installed
in less than 60 seconds the Yellow LED may come ON and stay
ON during the first lock operation before it returns to OFF.)
NOTE: It is recommended you replace the batteries after two
years, or when the yellow LED remains on.

Door opens half way then closes quickly with electric operation sprayed wd40 on rollers but still not working properly

Sounds like the 9 volt battery is very low, please put in a new, fresh 9 volt battery and see if that helps, as you've already addressed any issues with sticking, etc. When the battery(ies) are low, some electronic locks don't have enough power to fully pull in the dead bolt and the internal spring can overpower the small motor and cause the lock to re-engage quickly.

If you're getting a flashing red light when you enter in your key code, followed by flashing green light, your battery is low, if you're getting a flashing red light, the batteri is critically low.

If you have recently installed this lockset, it is possible that the alignment is off and is causing the deadbolt to drag and is preventing free movement. You'll need to adjust the lockset to allow the deadbolt to move freely by turning the hand knob with the door shut all the way.

If that doesn't help, please contact Schlage directly by calling them at the numbers provided:
