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:
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:
Symptom/problem: Outside knob/lever when turned always retracts latch without depressing
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:
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!
