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.

SOURCE: sentry 1610 safe - battery is dying?

I have 2 Sentry 1610 Safes. A fresh alkaline battery MAY open the safe once (maybe twice), and then the same problem. I have a variable DC power supply that I hook up to the battery terminals, set to 9 volts and increase the current until the keypad responds & the deadbolt releases. Sentry has no solution for this problem, as this model is too old & they have no parts or troubleshooting. If you know someone with a small DC Power Supply, you can get your safe open / closed.

SOURCE: csw3607 sentry safe will not open. when i use my 5

I hate to tell you, I just had this same problem on a brand new safe (x-mas present) and ended up having to crack it open. Unfortunately, from my extensive research on this problem on Sentry Safes it turns out that they use an encoded IC chip on the solenoid and if either a serial wire breaks going to the board or the IC chip fails, you get the 5 beep-of-death error. Needless to say, I'm thoroughly disappointed in Sentry and will discourage anyone from purchasing their products!

Can't open safe!


If it still doesn't open after you replace the batteries then it is probably do to it being Jamed. I'd suggest tapping it with a bit of force but if it still doesn't open to go and see if someone can fix it.

Trying to open safe but each time I enter it beeps with a red light


When you change batteries the combination that you programmed into the the Sentry Safe will delete and you will get the red light error signal. At A1 Locksmith Service we recommend that you use the original master code that came with the Sentry Safe. If you can not find your owners manual with the master combination. Addtional help can be provided at A1 Quality Safe. (650) 240-5505

A1 Locksmith Burlingame CA Once you get the error light that means you are entering a user code that was deleted when the batteries went dead . Simply replace the batteries then use the master code in your owners manual to open the safe. Reprogram new user code instructions bottom of this page.

I need to change the combination on my sentry S 3517


Locksmiths recommend
two ways to program a user code.A
1. Press the Program key.
2. Enter the Factory Code. The green LED remains ON while you enter the 5-digit user code of your choice.
After 5 digits are entered the green LED turns OFF.
(To enter a new User Code, repeat these steps.)
B 1. Press the red button inside the safe. The lock will “beep” and the green LED will come on.
2. Enter a 5-digit user code. (To enter a new User Code, repeat these steps.)
Keep your new user code secure.

Lost instructions for sandleford E.S.20 safe


The operating instructions on the ES20 as per the crappy manual:

Open safe using emergency key provided

Insert batteries in the box inside the door

Opening the safe
a. pre-set factory code 159
b. input 159 (the yellow light will flash and the buzzer will beep), then press B or A button, the green light will be on, rotate the knob clockwise, pull outwards, the door is opened

Closing the safe: close the door, input the code (the green light will flash for 5 secs). Turn the knob anti clockwise, the control system will activate and the safe will be locked

Changing the code: open the safe, press the red button located inside the door, the yellow light will go on indicating the code can be changed. Input the new code (1-8 digits), then press A or B button, it shall be confirmed by two beeps indicating the new code has been accepted and stored. If the yellow light and buzzer beeps 3 times the code is invalid - try again

Emergency Key - store in secure place NOT inside the safe. Remove the override cover in the centre of the face of Safe (its a silver plastic panel with Sandleford Electronic Safe ES20 on it), insert override key (a cyclinder key) - hidden underneath the override cover panel - and turn anti clockwise, rotate the knob clockwise to open door

Changing the Battery - If the red and green light are on this indicates that the batteries are low and require changing. To ensure the batteries have been installed correctly test before closing the door
