Sentry safe oa3817

I have an advanced LC electronic lock Sentry safe, Model OA3817. I have tried everything to unlock it: the 4-digit code and the 5-digit code on the sticker and the 5-digit code that I programmed in when I purchased the safe. I spent an hour on the phone with the Sentry representative and resorted to pounding the safe with a hammer. It is still not open. I want to retrieve my papers inside and don't care if the safe is ruined in the process. What can I do to open it before discarding it?

You'll need to go here:

There is no "default code", but they do keep the serial number and code on file, for just this purpose.

I have a different model but I had the same problem. Called customer service and they had me push up on the handle and enter the code. That didn't work but then they had me tap the safe with a rubber mallet 5 times above the panel and 5 times to the right of the panel. That worked for me. Hope one of those works.

SOURCE: Sentry Safe (DSW3607 Model) Won't Open

I finally ignored the poorly-written instructions for programming a personal code and simply entered the factory code first and then pressed the prog/enter code button.  The safe opened.  The instructions tell you to push the prog/enter code first and then enter the factory code or personal code to open the safe.  Wrong!  Do it my way should this problem happen to you.

To retrieve your lost sentry fireproof safe combination. First, find your safe's Model and Serial Number. The Serial Number is printed on the small label on the right side of safe (on paper tag near hinge) or under handle. As this information is confidential a valid credit card and email is needed to verify a customers name and address
sentry safe combination archives searches. Do come with a service charge although it's definitely cheaper then buying a new home electronic sentry fireproof safe.
