Open Question

How do I get the safe door open when the battery power is weak? My Futura safe is old---more than 20 years. It has the electronic keypad and runs on "c" batteries I believe. I punch the code in but th

Nothing beyond punching in the 6 numeral code repeatedly. The beeps get weaker and weaker. Should I contact a locksmith in my area to break the safe open? Of corse, I realize this will ruin the safe.

SOURCE: Liftmaster wireless keypad closes but won't open the door

If you are sure the battery is good you have a bad keypad. The signal strength is so weak it will not penetrate the door.

Sounds like you need a new battery replacement.

To replace the battery pack, unscrew the screw below the electronic lock case, turn the lock case to the right then remove it.

If the problem leads to acquiring the right combination for your safe.... call the attention of Sentry Safe Shop

You must call (800) 828-1438 for combination retrievals.
or send a notarized letter stating you are the owner of the safe, personal information, model and serial number of your safe and must indicate the method on how you will receive the combination.

My safe, a Cathedral EA15 Will not lock. Any suggestions people?



Instructions
  1. 1

    Enter your code on the keypad located on the front of the safe. Some electronic digital safes require you to input a special character like "#" before and after your code. The safe should either beep, have a LED turn green, or display "OPEN" if you have correctly entered the code.

  2. 2

    Turn the handle to the right within five seconds of correctly entering the code. If you wait too long, the safe will lock and you will have to enter your code ag

3

Open the safe with a key. Use your emergency key that came with the safe to open it if you forgot the code or if the batteries have died. Remove the key cover from either the handle or the control panel to reveal the lock.

  1. 1

    Enter your code to open the safe.

  2. 2

    Place the electronic digital safe into code reset mode. On some models you need to hold the last digit of the code or press the "*" button to get into code reset mode. Other safes require you to open them and press a small red button on the inside of the door.

  3. 3

    Enter your new code on the keypad and press "#" to finish. Some safes may require you to press "*" or a letter to finish the code. If the safe requires it, enter the new code again to confirm that you entered it correctly.

  1. 1

    Use your code to open the electronic digital safe's door.

  2. 2

    Locate and remove the battery cover on the inside of the door.

  3. 3

    Replace the used batteries with new ones. For most safes, this will require two or four AA batteries.

  4. 4

    Test the batteries. Use your code while the door is open to test the batteries before closing the safe.

My lagard lock safe won't open-no battery.


If internal battery is depleted and will not allow lock to open, hold a new9-volt alkaline battery on the contact points (large battery terminal to
large keypad contact, small to small) located on the front of the keypad.
Maintain contact, enter and valid code and turn keypad to open lock.
Lock contains a non-volatile
memory, even with batteries removed the lock will retain
all programming.
NOTE: You must maintain battery contact at all times throughout the
entire procedure.

I just had this problem with a model 909. The batteries might be too weak to move the bolt. See if it will move with the door open. Unfortunately, if it's more than a year old, it's out of warranty and no parts are available to repair the electronics. I replaced mine with a different brand, which doesn't drive the bolt, it simply enables the bolt to be moved by hand.

My wireless remote keypad stopped working. I changed the battery and it worked to get the garage door down but not up. The key pad is about 7 years old.


It sounds like your keypad is going bad and has a weak signal. It can operate the opener with the door open but with the door between it and the receiver it can't.

Batteries weak


Hi, Don't know the make and model of your safe but this advice works for sentry safes,if it doesn't help you get back to me with a make and model: If you need to know how to put batteries in, Turn the electronic lock clockwise ( to the right) from the 12 o'clock position to the 2 o'clock position which opens it so you can put in 4 fresh AA batteries replace the assembly by turning it to the left from the 2 o'clock back to the 12 o'clock. enter your combination and check for the green light. Good Luck!
