SOURCE: how to change the battery on my BE365-CAM-716 Schlage Keypad Deadbolt

Problem fixed by having my wife look it up on the Schlage website. The deadbolt has a flash memory so your combinations and codes will not be lost when the batteries are changed.

SOURCE: Key will not turn on deadbolt

The pins are probably frozen. Spray some w/d in lock, then try with key, keep repeating till key turns, this should free up lock. Dirt and moisture gets in lock cyl and gets gummed up. You could also remove handle and have locksmith take apart and clean, they will then use graphite instead of w/d wich attracts dirt.

SOURCE: How do I unmount a schlage keyed deadbolt?

There should be two hole plugs on the face of the interior deadbolt housing, above the key slot. They must be pryed out to access the screws. Unless it is installed inside out, then the the plugs will be outside. Yes I have seen this before or I wouldn't have mentioned it.

SOURCE: deadbolt loose,lock has no screws showing on the

Hi,
Usually the screws are on the inside by the thumb turn. If there aren't any screws there either... then you need to turn the lock case clockwise to tighten.

Hope this Helps,

How to fix a deadbolt lock that does not retract fully so door unlocks to open


You have to move the lock covering the big hole back toward hinge side by loosing screws and moving to the side till the deadbolt moves back all the way flush. Some deadbolts have a little indent ring to go inside the hole to hold it in position, that makes it harder to move whole thing back. Other brands that indent ring an is only option that you don't have to use. Maybe someone installing didn't put hole in right place, if it's too far off the lock when flush may expose the hole some. Then new door or creative fix to fill gap.

How do i remove the plugs covering the screws on the schlage deadbolt?


Schlage FAQs Schlage
The double cylinder deadbolts are keyed on both sides. On the interior side of the home there are drive pins (sometimes called screw covers) covering up the screws. Recommended method: Indent the center of each drive pin with a nail punch. Then use a carbon tip drill bit (about the size of a pencil lead) and ONLY go down 1/8". The drive pin will disintegrate. The drive pins will need to be replaced as they are no longer usable.

I have difficulty locking the deadbolt with the key


If the lock works easily with the door open, the strike plate is not lined up correctly. If it is hard to turn with the door open, loosen all the mounting screws and be sure the inside and outside parts are lined up correctly. Also the latch is marked for correct installation. If upside down, it won't work correctly. All three parts need to line up so check for smooth operation before tightening the screws.

I have a schlage deadbolt, keyed on both inside & outside but neither have any screws to remove. How do I remove the deadbolt?


There should be caps over two screws above and to both sides on the interior key cylinder. Carefully use a pointed tool to pry them out. This will expose the phillips head screws that hold the two halves of the lock together.

Schlage deadbolt will not unlock even with the use of a key?


it sounds as though the linkage that pulls the deadbolt back has disengaged... if you undo the screws from the inside of the door and remove the manual knob there will be 2 more screws holding the key lock to the door. A thin flat bar is attached to the key lock that goes through the deadbolt and into the manual knob. This bar turns with the key, sliding the bolt on its track to lock and unlock the door. Once the lock is apart check the key in the lock to see if the bar turns when the key does. then see if there is anything that may be obstructing the deadbolt from sliding. The locks are pretty indestructible so if there is a problem it may have been from the install... perhaps the door is to wide for the lock to engage properly and the lock worked loose in the 6 months that it worked.

New schlage deadbolt stuck in locked position


Make sure that the tang from the lock side actually engage the mechanism in other side of the door. If the tang is too short or not engaged the lock will not work. Also check that the two screws connecting the lock to the other side is actually tight.

Loose Kwikset Chelsea Deadbolt


I just had the same problem as samrpetrich with a loose kwikset deadbolt. Here's how I fixed it - on the inside of the door, take off the latch that flips the deadbolt in and out using a very small allen key. There is a round plate cover that is snapped on top of the inside deadbolt mechanism. If you look on the bottom aspect of this round plate you'll see where it snaps on; once I saw where to apply pressure it came off easily - taking off this plate exposed the two screws beneath that were loose. Once I tightened these, I snapped the plate cover back on, but the dead bolt latch back and everything is tight again. Hope this helps.
