Powerbolt 1000 started beeping and quit functioning
I have two powerbolt 1000 dead bolt locks. One on the front door and one on the back door. They have been installed for 10 months now. The front door started beeping. I suspected the batteries and removed the existing batteries until I had the opportunity to purchase new ones. After two days the back door lock started beeping. I removed these batteries as well. I installed new batteries in both locks and tested code and verified operation. They both worked correctly. What is strange is both locks start beeping after about 15 minutes and don't function correctly. I can remove the batteries install another new set of batteries and it works good for about 15 min than starts beeping again. I re-programmed the code again, tested. Again it starts beeping after about 15 min. Any suggestions?
Re: Powerbolt 1000 started beeping and quit functioning
To provide a further bit of information. According to tech support the beeping can be caused by EITHER a bad keypad (about $15) or a bad circuit board (about $80, so, time for a new lock). The easiest way to tell is to:
Remove the batteries
Unscrew the circuit board from the housing (it will remain attached and dangling by some wires)
Unplug the gray ribbon cable that connects the back of the circuit board to the keypad
Put the batteries back in
After powering back up, if the unit keeps beeping, the circuit board is bad. But if it doesn't the keypad is bad. You can order the replacement keypads from Weiser via the 800 number listed in the previous comment.

I have installed your Powerbolt, but when I push the Lock Button, it unlocks? What should I do? First remove the cover on the inside of the Powerbolt unit. On the right hand side under the batteries, you will notice that is says "Door Direction Jumper". If the cap is mounted on Prongs 1 & 2, carefully remove it and move it over so that it mounts Prongs 2 & 3. A is right handed, B is left handed. http://www.weiserlock.com/Support/Faq/50160000000HhmZAAS.aspx

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
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.
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.
