Question about Simplex Kaba Ilco Unican L1000 keyless lock
The mechanism is not removable for the outside, for that would defeat the purpose of the lock if any would-be entrant could just do that!
I am including a link to the grid of information for the L1000 lock, where you can find PDF links to the Manual, Parts List, and Tips. Tips has reprogramming and troubleshooting information.
In order to view PDF files, you will need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. There is a link to get Adobe Reader on the Literature Grid Page:
I found this instruction elsewhere on the FIXYA site ( thanks to pctuneup191):
PROCEDURES TO CHANGE THE COMBINATION OF SIMPLEX 1000 SERIES CIPHER LOCKS
1.) ENSURE THE DOOR IS OPEN.
2.) INSERT THE DF-59 CONTROL KEY INTO THE COMBINATION CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY (ON THE BACK OF THE
DOOR) AND UNSCREW THE CYLINDER BY TURNING THE KEY COUNTERCLOCKWISE.
3.) TAKE THE CHANGE PLUG ASSEMBLY COMPLETELY OUT OF THE DOOR.
4.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ALL THE WAY UNTIL IT STOPS, THEN RELEASE THE KNOB.
5.) PRESS IN THE EXISTING COMBINATION FIRMLY.
6.) INSERT THE SPANNER WRENCH IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE. IT SHOULD INSERT AT THE NINE
7.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH GENTLY CLOCKWISE UNTIL IT STOPS AT THE 12 O'CLOCK POSITION. NOTE
THE NOTCHES IN THE COMBINATION CHANGE SLEEVE MOVES AS THE SLEEVE IS MOVED.
8.) TURN THE SPANNER WRENCH COUNTERCLOCKWISE BACK TO THE NINE O'CLOCK POSITION UNTIL IT STOPS.
REMOVE THE SPANNER WRENCH.
9.) TURN THE OUTSIDE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE (ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS), THEN RELEASE.
10.) INSERT THE NEW COMBINATION BY PRESSING IN THE BUTTONS. USE AT LEAST three numbers and a
maximum of five.
11.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONCE, ALL THE WAY, UNTIL IT STOPS. HOLD IN THIS POSITION AND
CHECK IF THE LATCH IS RETRACTED.
12.) RELEASE THE DOOR KNOB.
13.) TURN THE DOOR KNOB CLOCKWISE ONE MORE TIME TO THE STOP POSITION. AT THIS POINT, THE LATCH
SHOULD NOT RETRACT UNLESS YOU USE THE NEW COMBINATION.
14.) REINSERT THE CYLINDER INTO THE BACK OF THE DOOR BY SCREWING IT IN CLOCKWISE WITH THE DF-59
CONTROL KEY (DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!)
REMOVE THE KEY.
