SOURCE: Brand new Sentury safe Csw3607 does not lock, handle stuck down.

I had the exact same problem... All you have to do is unscrew a long, skinny, silver screw on the inside of the door. This unlocks the handle and locking mechanisms. Would have been nice if that step was in the instructions!!! Good luck.

SOURCE: sentry safe, enter codes and nothing

These safe are easily opened by a good locksmith. So if you have items in the safe you need to get out a safe and vault tech could drill it open and repair it for a small fee. I really don't think it is the chip probably just a stuck solinoid.

I have bought a used red head safe. It's open but I can't get it to close. Also, I don't have a combination for it and I'd like to make up my own. Can you help me?


Most likely it will not close because the lock has been activated while the door was open. Probably need to take it to a locksmith.

Sports afield 6040 executive vault how to reset combination


Spot Afield safes default code is 1,2,3,4,5,6. Open the safe door, with door open lock the handle. This will let you have assess to your things if you have trouble while setting the codes. To change the code, press the * 6 times. You should hear a single beep and one flash from the LED, then enter the default code 1,2,3,4,5,6. Again you should hear one beep and see one flash. Enter the new code you would like to use ...lets say 6,5,4,3,2,1. You should hear one beep and see one flash. Enter the new code again 6,5,4,3,2,1. The code should now be set to 6,5,4,3,2,1. Try the new code and see if it unlocks the door. Also try the old code to make sure it no longer works.. If at any time during the process you hear 3 beeps and flashes something went wrong. You will need to start over.
Good Luck!!

After replacing the batteries, my lock starts with the alarm beeping and won't stop. this is the second one that has done this. what im i doing wrong? or are they only good for one set of batteries?


There is only a one year warranty on the electronics and Kwikset will not sell the electronic parts separately. Check the installation manual for a reset procedure - basically the lock might be "forgetting" it's programming. Another possibility is that it's trying to move the bolt and can't. Be sure the bolt moves freely.

If the electronics have failed and it's out of warranty, there are other brands that are key-compatible with Kwikset. You'll still have the same problem if the electronics breaks though. The main difference is that other brands don't move the bolt with battery power, they just enable it to be moved by hand.

Try changing the batteries first. No the electronic combo would not be erased unless someone previously changed the combination. There is probably something causing the bolts to not retract. The lock may fail if there is any pressure on the bolts and or the door of the safe. Hopefully this information helps.

I have a gun safe that is open the dial will not turn and the handle will not turn either. The safe door is open but I cannot get dial or handle to turn so that I can lock door. What can I do so that I...


well the good news is that the door is open and not locked closed --- do not close the door until the problem is for sure fixed. on the inside of the door there should be a access panel that is held on by some screws,, remove the screws and panel. now depending on the make and model of the safe there are a few things that could have happened here. there is a chance that a re-locker has failed and jammed the linkages from moving. ( NOTE : the dial should not turn until the handle is in the locked position ). now if you look at the bolt linkages ( top,bottom,and sides ) make sure that none of the bolts have jammed up against the exit holes of the metal of the door. lubricate all linkages using a silicone or teflon based lubricant. the next thing to check is to make sure that the bolt from the combo pack is not broken and jamming up the handle linkage. there are not many things that can go wrong with the safe -- it is all just a bunch of levers and linkages and it has been my experience ( working as a locksmith for 18 years ) that this problem is a binding issue. again,, I cannot stress it enough to make sure you do not close the door until the issue is fixed and you have tried the combo several times and simulated a open and close ( handle lock and un-lock ) test.
if after all this you are still having issues - it is well worth the service call to have a locksmith stop by and service the safe, this will insure that the safe does not lock you out.

My Gun Safe will not open. It is a Redhead gun safe (2007?) with an electronic lock and central "star" handle. It worked fine until last week; I still hear a light "click" after I...


there are a few things that might have happened,, one thing is that the battery is almost dead and does not have enough power to fully retract the locking bolt, or the bolt motor itself has failed and is not pulling the bolt back far enough to let the handle move, or the bolt is dragging, or a broken drive gear. all these are very common problems and in the lockshop that I worked at we would get 2 of these calls a week.
there is one thing that you can try before you call a locksmith to come out and try and get it open. IF it is not bolted to the floor : try and gently lay the safe down on its side ( hinge side twords the floor -- door facing you ), now with the help of a helper,, have them hold the top or bottom of the safe about 5 inches off the floor and you type in your combo, just as the combo is finished and you know that the ' clicking ' sound is about to click, have them drop the safe to the floor,, the timing has to be perfect and this may in fact let the bolt fall back into the combo pack enough to open the door,, turn the handle quickly and open the door. if this works ( 1 in about 100 ) then set the safe upright again and with the door open lubricate all moving parts / replace the battery and test the lock 15 times ( do not close the door until you have tested the system many times ).
if this does not work then call your local locksmith ( safe tech ) and have them come out to service the lock. ( they most likely will need to drill a small hole under the dial and move the bolt out of the way and replace whatever has broken ).

Sentry Model 1610 Won't Open


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.
