Question about Schlage Locks & Locksmithing
Posted by Anonymous on
Problem fixed by having my wife look it up on the Schlage website. The deadbolt has a flash memory so your combinations and codes will not be lost when the batteries are changed.

Make sure that the tang from the lock side actually engage the mechanism in other side of the door. If the tang is too short or not engaged the lock will not work. Also check that the two screws connecting the lock to the other side is actually tight.

you will need to dissasemble the deadbolt there is a plastic piece that wears out over time and once this wears out it wont work right probably best just to replace the deadbolt (sorry)

Schlage B160 - need small screwdriver to insert at bottom of faceplate to pry cover off. Face plate appears flush, but with a penlight you can see the recess at the bottom to pop it off. Screws lie under the cover for disassembly. Seems to be a lock design improvement once you figure out how to remove the faceplate.

it sounds as though the linkage that pulls the deadbolt back has disengaged... if you undo the screws from the inside of the door and remove the manual knob there will be 2 more screws holding the key lock to the door. A thin flat bar is attached to the key lock that goes through the deadbolt and into the manual knob. This bar turns with the key, sliding the bolt on its track to lock and unlock the door. Once the lock is apart check the key in the lock to see if the bar turns when the key does. then see if there is anything that may be obstructing the deadbolt from sliding. The locks are pretty indestructible so if there is a problem it may have been from the install... perhaps the door is to wide for the lock to engage properly and the lock worked loose in the 6 months that it worked.
