Question about Weiser Lock Powerbolt 1000 Lock

2 Answers

Powerbolt 1000 started beeping and quit functioning

I have two powerbolt 1000 dead bolt locks. One on the front door and one on the back door. They have been installed for 10 months now. The front door started beeping. I suspected the batteries and removed the existing batteries until I had the opportunity to purchase new ones. After two days the back door lock started beeping. I removed these batteries as well. I installed new batteries in both locks and tested code and verified operation. They both worked correctly. What is strange is both locks start beeping after about 15 minutes and don't function correctly. I can remove the batteries install another new set of batteries and it works good for about 15 min than starts beeping again. I re-programmed the code again, tested. Again it starts beeping after about 15 min. Any suggestions?

  • Take out batteries and unplug powerstrip.
  • Let it sit for 1 minute, then put the batteries back in and wait another minute.
I contacted customer support... they tell me the FAQ information on their own website is incorrect. The opposite is true, therefore the following is correct:
  • If it does not beep, the powerboard needs to be replaced
  • If the unit continues to beep, the keypad needs to be replaced
Here in Canada, they will send you a new one within 3-5 days free of charge. Call customer support:

Canada: 800-501-9471
US: 800-677-LOCK


The woman was very friendly. Great customer support!

To provide a further bit of information. According to tech support the beeping can be caused by EITHER a bad keypad (about $15) or a bad circuit board (about $80, so, time for a new lock). The easiest way to tell is to:

  • Remove the batteries
  • Unscrew the circuit board from the housing (it will remain attached and dangling by some wires)
  • Unplug the gray ribbon cable that connects the back of the circuit board to the keypad
  • Put the batteries back in
After powering back up, if the unit keeps beeping, the circuit board is bad. But if it doesn't the keypad is bad. You can order the replacement keypads from Weiser via the 800 number listed in the previous comment.

Since you've already gone through the battery change, etc.,this suggests that you need to replace the appropriate Powerboard for your lock.

So this is the link to Weiser Customer Support Page:

I suggest calling the appropriate toll-free number and having a conversation with a representative about this problem, first of all to confirm that you need the part before you go through the expense.
Also, they will be able to get the correct part on order for you.

Good luck!

My lock works for awhile then stops. The beeps sound all the time, then stops locking & unlocking using the keypad. Then a day or two it works again.

This link:

is the "manual" for the installation of the lock. Programming instructions are found on Page 6.

I'd recommend changing the 4 alkaline AA batteries at the same time.

I have a weiser lock powerbolt 1000 and i just installed it and progammed it except the bolt wont lock unless the keys are in the door, if i type in the code with the keys in it works fine but when i...


The deadbolt may very free inside the deadbolt hole... This system is low torque and a over torque clutch may slip if the dead bolt it's not completely free inside the deadbolt hole... Also, if you try to open the door before to unlock it, you may block the deadbolt... take care to unlock the door before open it. to be sure that the dead lock is ok, you can turn the manual knob and be sure is turning very very easily.

Also are you no that POWERBOLT is a 3 codes memory? go to that link to see more info about that : http://www.fixya.com/support/t8006865-not_overwrite_old_codes_just_keeps

6. Resetting the code: - please follow these instructions to reset the code on your Powerbolt 1000 unit:
  • Remove the inner cover plate from the lock.
