PROCEDURES TO CHANGE THE COMBINATION OF

SIMPLEX 1000 SERIES CIPHER LOCKS


1.) ENSURE THE DOOR IS OPEN.


2.) INSERT THE DF-59 CONTROL KEY INTO THE COMBINATION CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY (ON THE BACK OF THE

DOOR) AND UNSCREW THE CYLINDER BY TURNING THE KEY COUNTERCLOCKWISE.


3.) TAKE THE CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY COMPLETELY OUT OF THE DOOR.


4.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ALL THE WAY UNTIL IT STOPS, THEN RELEASE THE KNOB.


5.) PRESS IN THE EXISTING COMBINATION FIRMLY.


6.) INSERT THE SPANNER WRENCH IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE. IT SHOULD INSERT AT THE NINE

O'CLOCK POSITION.


7.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH GENTLY CLOCKWISE UNTIL IT STOPS AT THE 12 O'CLOCK POSITION. NOTE

THE NOTCHES IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE MOVES AS THE SLEEVE IS MOVED.


8.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH COUNTERCLOCKWISE BACK TO THE NINE O'CLOCK POSITION UNTIL IT STOPS.

REMOVE THE SPANNER WRENCH.


9.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE (ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS), THEN RELEASE.


10.) INSERT THE NEW COMBINATION BY PRESSING IN THE BUTTONS. USE AT LEAST three numbers and a

maximum of five.


11.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONCE, ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS. HOLD IN THIS POSITION AND

CHECK IF THE LATCH IS RETRACTED.


12.) RELEASE THE DOOR KNOB.


13.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONE MORE TIME TO THE STOP POSITION. AT THIS POINT, THE LATCH

SHOULD NOT RETRACT UNLESS YOU USE THE NEW COMBINATION.


14.) REINSERT THE CYLINDER INTO THE BACK OF THE DOOR BY SCREWING IT IN CLOCKWISE WITH THE DF-59

CONTROL KEY (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!)


REMOVE THE KEY.

Have simplex lp1000 keyless lock sytem is zeroed out but will not reset or take new code, aleays stayes unlocked


"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

Solution: Follow the procedure for changing a combination except omit step 3 (do not enter
the existing combination)."

I excerpted the above from the full instructions on how to change the code. If you don't have them, got to this link:

http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13

and go across from L1000 to the last column, "Tips".
When you hover your mouse over PDF, two choices will appear; left click on the upper one, "Changing the code/..." to download it.
The download will be a PDF file format. If you are unable to open it, you will need to download and install Adobe Reader on your computer. There is a link (Get Adobe Reader) at the top right of the literature grid.
When you do get the download open, you will have the stepwise procedure and illustrations necessary-but don't forget to omit Step 3, if you believe that you have the ZERO code problem!

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

Opens with out a code and can not get it to stop pulling the latch back. i tryed to put a new code in but cant grt past step 2


I THINK that the problem you describe is because the lock is in "Zero Code":
"If your lock is opening on every turn of the knob or lever, except upon entering a code, this may be a ZERO CODE."
Go to this web page:
http://www.kaba-ilco.com/access_control/literature/literature_grid_mechanical_pushbutton_locks.aspx?id=13
and position your mouse on PDF under the "TIPS" (rightmost) column on the grid line for the L1000.
Two choices will pop up; click on the upper one "Changing the code/Combination...." and download and open this file.
If it does not open, you need to download and install Adobe Acrobat on your computer from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/ It's free!

When you get this document open, you will see the statement that I quoted from the top about the Zero Code. At the bottom of the document you will see:
Troubleshooting
Symptom/problem: Outside knob/lever when turned always retracts latch without depressing
any buttons.
Cause: Lock is in zero combination.
Solution: Follow the procedure for changing a combination except omit step 3 (do not enter
the existing combination).

One last nasty piece of information: If you don't have the necessary DF-59 Key or spanner wrench mentioned in the procedure, you can get either from these sources:

Key:
http://absupply.net/kaba-access-control-lock-1000-series-key-df59.aspx

Whew! That was a lot of stuff, to digest, so I hope it helps. Good Luck!

Can a L1000 series simplex kaba be switched to mount a right handed door


No. The Kaba L1000 is factory-handed and is not field-reversible.

That information comes from the grid found on this page:

Yow will find a link to download the manual for your model L1000 on this page:

When i turn the knob without entering the combo, the door opens. When I enter code, the door doesnt open. The passage knob is in the correct position.
