1 Answer

New master lock night watch dead bolt installed. But when we try to lock it from outside or unlock it all it does is spin and go round and round until sometimes if we are lucky it will catch. Does it ned to be adjusted somehow? Or was it installed incorrectly? This was installed by our landlord before we moved in. Right now we can't use the lock at all. Please advise. Thanks

Since it was new then I can only surmise that it was installed improperly. You or your landlord will have to take it back out and properly install it. Make sure that the male and female parts of the lock all fit together smoothly. Use your key and operate the lock several times before you screw it all back together. Most of the installation instructions are very detailed and you should be able to see what step might have been overlooked. Hope this gets you in.

How do I change rear axle seal on 1991 dodge Dakota 4×4?


Remove the wheel and tire.

Remove the drum.

Drain the rear and remove the cover.

Locate the 8mm bolt locking in the center pin and remove it.

Slide the pin out 1/2 way. DO NOT SPIN EITHER AXLE WHILE THE PIN IS OUT.

Push the axle in from the outside. You will hear the "c" clip fall in the rear. Put the center pin back in the rear and thread the bolt a couple turns.

Slide the axle out.

Remove the outer seal and install the new one.

Reverse the procedure REMEMBERING to put the "C" clip back in.

(Slide the center pin 1/2 way out. Install the axle FULLY. install the "C" clip and pull the axle from the outside to insure the clip is in. DO NOT SPIN THE AXLE until the center pin is reinstalled and the retaining bolt is in.)

Battery dead, doors won't open


Two ways to do this. You can try to jump a good battery to your car so it would have voltage to unlock, connect the ground to any good frame contact or engine block, and the other hot end to the hot wire on the starter, this may involve crawling under the car. Another way is to gain access to the hood latch and try to manually get the latch to open, you might have to remove the grill. If you can't get the latch to unlock this way, you could just remove the bolts holding the latch on to the car, and lift hood latch and all. (watch out for your latch cable, as it would probably still be connected and hood won't raise much, but just enough to unlatch the latch.

How do I lock the door with the key pad? I can unlock it fine but I can't get the door to lock. Don't have the manual. what buttons to I press?


Push the Lock button on outside touch pad to extend latch bolt 1" which locks the door when you leave.
Enter your desired personal code to retract the latch bolt completely which unlocks the door when you return home.
The T-turn on the inside of the door is used to extend (lock) or retract (unlock) the latch bolt when you are inside.
Using the key from the outside will also extend (lock) or retract (unlock) the latch bolt.
This Touchpad Electronic Deadbolt should be accompanied by a Kwikset Knobset, Leverset, or Handleset.

I cut & pasted the above from the installation instruction sheet.
Here is the link to the entire installation instructions sheet (manual):

http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/content/BDHHI/40486-02

It is a .PDF file, so if you aren't able to view it, download and install Adobe Reader from this site first:

If you are not able to lock the door using the outside touch pad's lock button, you may need to reprogram the door's "handedness", which gives the lockset the ability to be used on doors that have their hinges on either the right or left side of the door (right-hand or left-hand door).
The instructions for that are found on Step 4.9. This is also an excellent time to change the batteries, which is recommended yearly.

Good luck!

I have a weiser lock powerbolt 1000 and i just installed it and progammed it except the bolt wont lock unless the keys are in the door, if i type in the code with the keys in it works fine but when i...


The deadbolt may very free inside the deadbolt hole... This system is low torque and a over torque clutch may slip if the dead bolt it's not completely free inside the deadbolt hole... Also, if you try to open the door before to unlock it, you may block the deadbolt... take care to unlock the door before open it. to be sure that the dead lock is ok, you can turn the manual knob and be sure is turning very very easily.

Also are you no that POWERBOLT is a 3 codes memory? go to that link to see more info about that : http://www.fixya.com/support/t8006865-not_overwrite_old_codes_just_keeps

Dead bolt trys to turn in the same direction


Hi.
I think it can be possible that the bolt assembly is installed upside down.
Remove the unit, and refit with the bolt and faceplate the other way up.
Test WITH THE DOOR OPEN. to ensure correct function.

I am not familiar with this lock - but other weiser locksets can suffer the same problem if a deadbolt is installed inverted.

Clock out of control


I have a Jornada 568 but I've never seen the behaviour you describe. Is it possible that you damaged or caught a small part when you installed the new battery? Your new battery, was that the small round battery or a battery pack on the back of the unit. "Resetting to Factory defaults" suggests that there is no power at all, doesn't it? If the small round watch battery is dead then that might effect the clock.
