Kwikset locks are cheap and not designed to be repaired. If it was working and now doesn't, it's time to replace it.

If it is new, then take it back to the store and ask them to look at it. If it's working the right way, they'll be able to show you what you did wrong (or if it's a feature, then allow you to get one without that feature if you don't like it.) If it's not working right, they can replace it.

If you absolutely must have the replacement lock work with your old keys, then any locksmith and many other places that sell locks can set up a new lock of the same brand to other keys.

Exterior door stuck closed manually retract ****** remove knobs KWIKSET


You will probably need to replace the latch assembly. There is a small rivet that holds part of the latch together, and it also acts as a pivot point for a small piece that retracts the latch. If it gets bent, the latch won't retract fully, but you might be able to push it back and get the door open.

How to change entry code


First, remove the control cylinder with your "DF59" control key. The cylinder unscrews to remove. Next, turn the knob all the way to the right, and release it.
Step three: Enter the existing code
Step four: Using either the spanner wrench that came with the lock, or a medium-sized flat-tip screwdriver, reach into the hole the control cylinder came out of; and turn the cam inside, about 1/4 turn (as far as it will go), and then back.
Step five: Turn the knob as far as it goes, ONLY ONCE, then release it.
Step six: Enter your new code.
Step seven: Turn the knob (this time, it should retract the latch).

Test it by turning the knob again: The latch should not retract. Now enter your new code and it should retract the latch as you turn the knob. If so, you have successfully changed the code.

How do I change the combination on my Unican 1000 keyless lock? thx john


The door must be open.
On models with the passage feature, make sure the passage feature is disengaged: turn knob or key should be in vertical position (A) (see figure 1).
1. Insert the DF-59 control key (B) into the combination change plug
assembly (
C) and unscrew the cylinder by turning the key
c
ounterclockwise. Remove the combination change plug to gain access to the combination change sleeve (see figure 1).
2. Turn the outside knob/lever once clockwise (all the way, until it stops) then release. The latch should not retract (see figure 4).
3. Enter the existing combination. On new installations, use the factory- set combination: depress 2 and 4 simultaneously, (release), then 3
(r
elease). You should feel a slight click as each button is depressed.
4. Insert the spanner wrench as shown in figure 2 to engage the combina- tion change sleeve (A). Gently turn the spanner wrench clockwise to the stop position (a slight click should be felt), then turn the spanner wrench counter-clockwise to the stop position (A) (see figure 3). Remove the spanner wrench.
5. Turn the outside knob/lever once clockwise all the way until it stops, then release. The latch should not retract (see figure 4).
6. Choose your new combination, write it down, then enter the new combination-depress buttons carefully (a slight click should be felt as each button is depressed).
Note: You can use one button or all five for a combination, but each button can only be used once. You can depress two or more buttons simultaneously as a step in the combination.
7. Turn the outside knob/lever clockwise once, all the way, until it stops, hold in position and make sure the latch is retracted (see figure 5).
R
elease the knob/lever.
Note: 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.

Can't close back door without turning the knob


Try taking the knob out of the door and spraying the whole latching mechanism with WD40 or some kind of lubricant. There is a few moving parts in there that can get bound up. Hope this helps. Don't forget to leave feed back.
