Mother just past away,luckily safe was open at time,but dont know combo to keypad or we haven't found a key,how do i reset code to sentry10 gunsafe


To reset the combination on a Sentry safe, open the door of the safe, delete the existing codes, press the PROG or P key and enter the factory code. Finally, enter a new five-digit number as per individual preference, which is the new user combination.
It is always prudent to reset the combination on a Sentry safe when the door is open because it prevents the user from being locked out. To open the Sentry safe door, type the five-digit factory code given in the owner's manual. This factory code cannot be altered.
To delete the existing codes on newer models of the safe as of 2015, press the P button. Then, type the factory code and follow it up by inputting "00000" into the safe. On older models of the Sentry safe, press the PROG button and type the factory code two times.
After deleting the existing codes, press the PROG or P key and then enter the factory code once again. Within five seconds, type a new five-digit number, which is the new user code. To verify if the user code is working, retype it and then close the door of the safe. The user code is the primary code for opening the safe, and users can reset it as often as they want too

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.

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.

I have a Sentry safe S3877 the batteries were replaced with new it still gives the error beeps for batteries need to be replaced the safe will not open, how can I get the safe to open?


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 forgot the safewell electronic code and didnt have the key


NOTE: The safe needs to be upright and right side up or the locking mechanism
won’t work.
ELECTRONIC SAFES
To open an electronic safe the first time, press the following numbers/letters on the
electronic keypad –159B. (These numbers are preset. You should change the code as soon
as possible after opening the safe to insure proper security). After you have entered the
factory set code, you will need to turn the knob on the faceplate to open the door. You will
have 5 seconds to turn the knob before the locking mechanism is reactivated.
ENTERING YOUR SECURITY CODE
To enter your own security code you will need to follow the steps listed below:
1. After opening the electronic safe (with the pre -set factory code of 159B) locate the
small red button on the inside of the door near the hinge.
2. Press the red button and then release it, you will hear a beep.
DO NOT SHUT THE DOOR UNTIL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED THAT YOUR NEW
SECURITY CODE HAS BEEN ENTERED CORRECTLY.
3. With the door open, enter your own personal security code, which can be 3- 8 digits
long, and confirm your new code by pressing the letter “B” on the electronic touch pad.
Before you close the door, try the new security code to make sure the lock release the
knob so you can turn it and retract the live action locking bolts.

If you can not get this open more then likely you will have to cut it open.. One last thing to try is to email safewell sales@safewellsafe.com

Good luck

Sentry Safe (DSW3607 Model) Won't Open


I finally ignored the poorly-written instructions for programming a personal code and simply entered the factory code first and then pressed the prog/enter code button.  The safe opened.  The instructions tell you to push the prog/enter code first and then enter the factory code or personal code to open the safe.  Wrong!  Do it my way should this problem happen to you.

Sentury safe Model MSW3517


HI , I have the Sentry Safe Model # MSW3517. After 10 months of owning this safe the batterys went bad. I replaced the batterys with new ones and the safe still would not open.I checked online and so many people were having the same problem. I called customer service, Who told me to bang on the safe door with a rubber hammer ( What ever are they talking about ) I studied this safe design and found out that the battery holder went bad.Not making a steady contact with new batterys, Went to my local radio shack store and for ( 1.99 $ ) replaced the factory battery holder and now the safe opens with no problems..Very cheap and simple fix.You will have to cut the 9v battery connector plug off the red & black factory wires to connect the new battery holder for this to work.Very easy to do.. goodluck....
