Question about Sentry Fireproof Safe
I have a Sentry 3100 that was placed in the basement for 10 years. I can open and close it, but the dial is not smooth turning, but kind of notchy... I'd like to remove the inner plastic panel and see if I can lubricate the mechanism, but don't know if I can.... anyone have any information about removing the panel, or lubricating the dial and inner parts?
I found the owner's manual and after reading it, it said there was a screw I could remove and pop off the panel. I found the screw in an indented area, removed it, but the cover would not just pop off. There is one tab on the left side and one on the right side I had to pry with a screwdriver, and then it did come off... turns out there was no rust inside. I think it is built out of pot metal castings for the most part which won't rust... there are a few steel disks there, and I lightly oiled them....
All is good, now... and the safe is back in use.
