SOURCE: i for got my combination to my 1500iD master lock

if you have totally forgotten the combo, then the only way to figure out the combo is to progress the combo -- to do this you will start from 0000 and then 0001,0002,0003,0004 etc.. all the way through until you hit the right numbers and the lock opens, ( make sure you try and open the lock at every new number ). a 4 digit combo usually takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to go through all the numbers. what will help in this progression process is if you can at least remember one of the numbers or better yet, remember two of the numbers.
some locksmith shops do have special tools ( readers ) that might be able to read the wheels and figure out the combo for you --- call around and ask some of the lock shops in your area if they have the ability to read the lock for you,, but if they can't - then you are back to square one ( progression ).
hope this helps,

Where do i store my combination

I am not aware of a "Lock Box" or "storage" capability on FixYa.

If you want storage capability for free...
Google free online storage.

These are just a few available that are very good.

How do I get it back open when it won't open to the combination I gave it?

Make sure you push the shackle down firmly to clear the lock and try the combo again. It is possible to open it by trial and error, but not easy. I have removed the security screws and repaired one, but it was tricky to reassemble. The problem with mine was a spring that slipped out of position and the lock wouldn't reset correctly. There are a lot of parts inside, so chances of getting it to work correctly are not good unless you're really good with complex mechanisms and puzzles.

I set a code in the master lock speed dial 1500id, and it will not open. I cannot reset the code and do not know how to get this open. I have read the other suggestions and nothing has worked yet. Anyone...

Try 2 options:
1. just squeeze the shackle twice and pull it out. This is in case you forgot to enter new combination.
2, Make the 2 combination together, the old and the new as one sequence. This in case you forgot to squeeze the shackle before enter new combination
