Kwikset powerbolt 1000 keyless entry deadbolt lock with keypad
I cannot lock the door using the key. I can use my key to put the door in the locked position but when I reverse the key a quarter turn to pull the key back out, the key won't budge. The only way to remove the key is to unlock the door again.I cannot lock my door.HELP!
Make sure that the bolt hole on the jamb side is recessed enough so the bolt gets a full extension. Without this externsion the bolt will not engage the key release. So when you do your quarter turn you are actually turning more. Remove the strike plate and drill the hole deeper until the bolt can extend all the way. Also double check your key to make sure it is not spurred or worn.

Which manufacturer made the keyless deadbolt lock? Make sure that the batteries are good in the unit.
I have an older Weiser Powerbolt deadbolt lock that is programmed by taking off the cover on the inside of the door. This model has handheld remotes and the keypad. Inside there are three yellow buttons. Two match the cover's lock and unlock buttons. Press and hold the third button (in the center of the set of buttons). Then enter program in the code within a few seconds and press the enter button to set the code. If the unit beeps again, the code is set. If the unit doesn't beep, retry from the press and hold the Program button step.
Another model of the Weiser Powerbolt lock has the Program button either on the top left or lower right hand side of the board (depending on the way the door opens) under the cover. Press the Program button once and then enter the 4-8 digit code. Press the Lock button to set the code. If you hear a long beep, the code was accepted; otherwise try to program your code again.
Kwikset Powerbolt locks are programmed the same way as the second Weiser Powerbolt described above.
Kwikset SmartCode locks have their Program button in the center of the bottom of the control board. Otherwise the programming is the same as that given above for the second version of Weiser Powerbolt locks.
MiLocks have three buttons in a horizontal line. The left-most button is the Set button. Press this then enter the code followed by the Unlock button. The code must be entered within 5 seconds of pressing set.
Baldwin Hardware's Boulder series of keyless entry deadbolts are programmed just like the Kwikset SmartCode units.
I don't know of any videos. Most manufacturers do have PDF files with the programming instructions.
I hope this helps. Please add more information about your deadbolt for extra assistance.
Cindy Wells (I end up replacing the batteries often on the lock I have; it seems like they last 6 months or less.)
Your lock is under one year warranty, with a lifetime warranty if the problem is mechanical or the finish. Here is a link to the website warranty information, and from there you can contact them for technical and warranty assistance:
I had the same question as my son installed the lock. Instructions should be printed on the cover you remove (inside the house). They need to make removing that cover MUCH easier, I'm always afraid I'll break it. Anyway, you press the button once for the first number. To enter a "guest" code, press the button twice then enter the 2nd code in the keypad and press the lock button. Now try both main # and guest #, both should open ttthe lock.
6. Resetting the code: - please follow these instructions to reset the code on your Powerbolt1000 unit:
Remove the inner cover plate from the lock.
Locate the small round program button near the left side of the circuit board (Red or Black).
To program, the latch should be extended out in the lock position, press the reset button once, then enter your 4-8 digit code on the exterior keypad, then immediately press the middle lock button on the exterior keypad. You will hear a beep. Re-enter the same 4-8 digit code to confirm, the latch should retract. This completes the programming. This signals that your code has been accepted.
To enter a second code, follow the same procedures as in step 3, but this time press the reset button twice then enter your code.
7. Replacing the batteries: - please follow these instructions to replace the batteries on your Powerbolt1000 unit:
Remove inner cover plate located above the thumb turn on the inside of the door
Replace all 4 batteries with quality alkaline AA batteries. (Do not use rechargeable batteries.)
Ensure that the batteries are correctly oriented or unit will not function properly.
8. Changing the password code: - please follow these instructions:
Manually put the bolt in extended (lock) position. Press PROGRAM button once, enter new 4 - 8 digit code and then press LOCK.
Press PROGRAM button twice, enter the same new code and then press LOCK once.
Press PROGRAM button three times, enter the same new code and then press LOCK once.
These stept will program only the new code you enter for your unit.
9. Why is my Powerbolt1000 unit beeping? - To determine why your lock is beeping, please follow these steps:
Take out batteries and unplug powerstrip.
Let is sit for 1 minute then put the batteries back in and wait another minute.
If it does not beep, the keypad needs to be replaced (17733-1).
If the unit beeps, the powerboard needs to be replaced (A17734-4,3 Powerboard 1460 brass finish; A17734-4,26D Powerboard 1460 satin chrome finish; A17734-4,5 Powerboard 1460 antique brass finish; A17734-4,11P Powerboard 1460 bronze finish).
