Simplex l1000 latch will not retract completely

I have a Simplex L1000 that when you retract the lever from the key side, the latch will not retract all the way causing the door to jam sometimes. On the other hand if you retract the latch from the non-locking side, the latch will retract completely as it should. What could be the issue?

No. The Kaba L1000 is factory-handed and is not field-reversible.

That information comes from the grid found on this page:

SOURCE: Iv'e got a Simplex L1000

Here is a link to the Kaba Ilco web page which has a grid chart, including the L1000 series lock:
http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13

Of particular interest to you will be the Manual (page 10) and Parts List, which shows an exploded view of the lockset. Hopefully this will give you the info that you need.

On the same webpage you will also find a link "Contact Us" for further technical information and parts.
Also on that page is a link to get Adobe Reader. If you don't already have it installed on your computer, you will need it to open the PDF files for the manual and parts list.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Have simplex lp1000 keyless lock sytem is zeroed out but will not reset or take new code, aleays stayes unlocked


"If your lock is opening on every turn of the knob or lever, except upon entering a code, this may be a ZERO CODE. Before attempting to remove the lock from the door, refer to the troubleshooting procedures outlined at bottom of this document for a zero code symptom/solution

Solution: Follow the procedure for changing a combination except omit step 3 (do not enter
the existing combination)."

I excerpted the above from the full instructions on how to change the code. If you don't have them, got to this link:

http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13

and go across from L1000 to the last column, "Tips".
When you hover your mouse over PDF, two choices will appear; left click on the upper one, "Changing the code/..." to download it.
The download will be a PDF file format. If you are unable to open it, you will need to download and install Adobe Reader on your computer. There is a link (Get Adobe Reader) at the top right of the literature grid.
When you do get the download open, you will have the stepwise procedure and illustrations necessary-but don't forget to omit Step 3, if you believe that you have the ZERO code problem!

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

How do I change the handles from right to left?


If you don't have the print instructions for your lock, go to this web page:

http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13

On the grid, go across from L1000 to the "Manuals" column & click on PDF, which will download the file of the manual for your lock.

If you cannot open the file to view it, you need to install Adobe Reader first. You can get the download (free) from here:

http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Now you should have the manual for reference.

Someone else who was wanting to change the handle sent me this information:

"I've got a Simplex L1000 series combination that needs the Outside Lever Assembly-Right Hand and Outside Sleeve Assembly changed on it. I have the parts needed but I can't figure out how to remove the Outside Lever from the Front Lock Housing.

I had the original question. For others viewing and needing the answer it's as follows: After looking and removing the internal parts I still couldn't find the solution, so I ended up sending it to a locksmith to replace the parts. They told me later that ALL internal parts from the Front Lock Housing needed to be removed, then rotate outside lever 180 degrees. Using spanner wrench depress the front knob retainer, then outside lever should slide off. Remove Drive Assemply and Front knob retainer from rear of front lock housing. *The key was rotating the lever 180 degrees. Nowhere in the directions was this mentioned nor was it mentioned in the email reply I received from Simplex.. So for all you out there, Good Luck! And make sure to add this key step to your directions."

As you will find in the manual, you need a special spanner wrench for this operation.
The spanner wrench (SMPBC201278 Simplex:SpannerWrench $9.00) referred to can be purchased from this site:

Good luck!

Opens with out a code and can not get it to stop pulling the latch back. i tryed to put a new code in but cant grt past step 2


I THINK that the problem you describe is because the lock is in "Zero Code":
"If your lock is opening on every turn of the knob or lever, except upon entering a code, this may be a ZERO CODE."
Go to this web page:
http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13
and position your mouse on PDF under the "TIPS" (rightmost) column on the grid line for the L1000.
Two choices will pop up; click on the upper one "Changing the code/Combination...." and download and open this file.
If it does not open, you need to download and install Adobe Acrobat on your computer from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/ It's free!

When you get this document open, you will see the statement that I quoted from the top about the Zero Code. At the bottom of the document you will see:
Troubleshooting
Symptom/problem: Outside knob/lever when turned always retracts latch without depressing
any buttons.
Cause: Lock is in zero combination.
Solution: Follow the procedure for changing a combination except omit step 3 (do not enter
the existing combination).

One last nasty piece of information: If you don't have the necessary DF-59 Key or spanner wrench mentioned in the procedure, you can get either from these sources:

Key:

The spanner wrench (SMPBC201278 Simplex:SpannerWrench $9.00) referred to can be purchased from this site:

Whew! That was a lot of stuff, to digest, so I hope it helps. Good Luck!

LOST CODE AND LATCH WON,T RETRACT WHEN LEVER IS TURNED.


Navigate to this page, which show a grid of Simplex products, then scroll down to the L1000 entry:

http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13&obj=1000

Then go to the rightmost column (TIPS) and hover your mouse over "PDFs", which will pop up a window with two choices: Changing the code, or How to reset a lost combination.

You will then be able to download a PDF file of your choosing for instructions.

If you don't already have Adobe Reader or another PDF reader program installed on your computer, there is a link at the top of the the grid chart to download Adobe Reader.

Good luck!

Forgot code to Unican L1000 lock. How can you reset code?


I found this instruction elsewhere on this site ( thanks to pctuneup191):

PROCEDURES TO CHANGE THE COMBINATION OF SIMPLEX 1000 SERIES CIPHER LOCKS


1.) ENSURE THE DOOR IS OPEN.


2.) INSERT THE DF-59 CONTROL KEY INTO THE COMBINATION CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY (ON THE BACK OF THE

DOOR) AND UNSCREW THE CYLINDER BY TURNING THE KEY COUNTERCLOCKWISE.


3.) TAKE THE CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY COMPLETELY OUT OF THE DOOR.


4.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ALL THE WAY UNTIL IT STOPS, THEN RELEASE THE KNOB.


5.) PRESS IN THE EXISTING COMBINATION FIRMLY.


6.) INSERT THE SPANNER WRENCH IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE. IT SHOULD INSERT AT THE NINE

O'CLOCK POSITION.


7.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH GENTLY CLOCKWISE UNTIL IT STOPS AT THE 12 O'CLOCK POSITION. NOTE

THE NOTCHES IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE MOVES AS THE SLEEVE IS MOVED.


8.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH COUNTERCLOCKWISE BACK TO THE NINE O'CLOCK POSITION UNTIL IT STOPS.

REMOVE THE SPANNER WRENCH.


9.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE (ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS), THEN RELEASE.


10.) INSERT THE NEW COMBINATION BY PRESSING IN THE BUTTONS. USE AT LEAST three numbers and a

maximum of five.


11.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONCE, ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS. HOLD IN THIS POSITION AND

CHECK IF THE LATCH IS RETRACTED.


12.) RELEASE THE DOOR KNOB.


13.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONE MORE TIME TO THE STOP POSITION. AT THIS POINT, THE LATCH

SHOULD NOT RETRACT UNLESS YOU USE THE NEW COMBINATION.


14.) REINSERT THE CYLINDER INTO THE BACK OF THE DOOR BY SCREWING IT IN CLOCKWISE WITH THE DF-59

CONTROL KEY (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!)


REMOVE THE KEY.
