Question about Sentry Safe Fire-Safe Personal Safe

1 Answer

I purched a Sentry Fire-safe in 2003 and I am having trouble with things mildewing, like money and even my old coins. Does this mean that it isn't safe from water and, what can be done about it. My safe is A5865 Business Safe. I bought it at Office Max.

    I accept your answer but not happy because no where in the documation does it say it's not waterproof. I paid over $350.00 for the safe thinking it was safe for my documents, not I find out it isn't. I will have to look for one that is is but it won's be a Sentry. Thank you for your help.

If the objects inside it become covered in mildew then the humidity gets inside the safe so yes, it's not sealing properly. But this exact model of safe was never declared as waterproof by the manufacturer so this isn't a manufacturing defect, it's how it was designed.

To fix that you should add an extra stick-on gasket on the periphery of the door - one of those thin and narrow rubber-made flat ones that are sold in supermarkets for window sealing. But the best solution is, as always, to return this one and get a safe that is guaranteed by the manufacturer for being waterproof.

Hi, Someone tried ti break in the Sentry combination safe now when we opened it it was very hard but we did,now we cant close it and the wheel wont spin...Any help please.Elaine


unfortunetly the lock mechanism may be shot at this point keep in mind that this is a Fire Safe not a Security Safe which are two totally different things. The Fire Safe units are meant to protect primarily against threats from fire so the locks are not as robust as a Security safe would be.

I have a sentry 1250 and don't have the money to get the combination from the company and the combination is locked in side how do i get it besides paying for it


Sounds like the the only thing you could do is to drill it. Then look in the hole to line up the tumblers. For more help call a good locksmith.

I have a Sentry safe model #1250, but I have lost the combination. How do I retrieve the combination?


If you have it and it's not yours, give it back to the person who does have the combination.
Otherwise go through all the possible combinations until one works.

If it saves you money, use the Yes Machine that would be used on it in case of fire, and buy another safe you can remember the combination to.

Hmm, Those coin sized cells are fairly common as to types used. CR-2016, CR-2025, and CR-2032 would be my guess...
