You can change codes as often as you like, for use by babysitters, contractors, etc. You can also reset the lock so you can reset the master code, which is needed in order to set the other user codes.
Rather than re-type all the step-by-step instructions, since you also could benefit by having a copy of the manual for your use and reference, I'll give you a link to a free copy you can save and print.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Good news! Weiser has a lifetime warranty against mechanical defects and problems with the finish (but only a one year warranty protecting the internal electronics). Here's the link to the warranty page:
But before you pursue that, a few questions and comments. How does the lock function with the door open? If it functions okay, then you need to investigate the alignment between the door lock and the door jamb/strike plate. Also, these locks can be internally adjusted for installation in doors with a 2 3/8" or 2 3/4" backset. Is it off by about 3/8"? if so, check that.
Some months ago I suggested that possibility to someone else with much the same problem. He found that a plastic member had disintegrated in that area of the lock and was jamming it up.
Here's a link to the installation instructions; you'll see what I'm talking about under Item 2 Deadbolt Latch Installation (Piece B)
A note about PDF files: If you cannot view the installation instructions, you need to first install Adobe Reader. You can get the free download here:
Good luck--and please leave feedback if this helps!

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.
