SOURCE: Deadbolt wont unlock

Remove the deadbolt cover by removing the 2 screws. This will get you inside the deadbolt. Try using a screwdriver to pull it back. You may in the end have to break the unit in order to get it out and replace it. I have the same thing happen with a deadbolt. I ended up having to destroy the unit to get it out. You are going to replace it anyway so do whatever it takes to get it to unlock so you can then remove it from the door and install a new one. You do not want a deadbolt that will not unlock.

SOURCE: Kwikset Smart Key Deadbolt Won't Unlock

Kwikset Smart Key locks are complete junk. I am a locksmith and I am constantly going from house to house replacing these "dumb key" locks with original kwikset pin tumbler locks. What happens is either your key or the wafers inside the lock wear slightly, slightly enough to cause your keys to not turn, and since these locks cannot be picked due to a side bar system, they must be drilled off and thrown away when this happens Unless you have another access point to get in the house. If you do remove lock from the inside, throw it in the trash, buy original kwikset and replace.

Your lock is under one year warranty, with a lifetime warranty if the problem is mechanical or the finish.
Here is a link to the website warranty information, and from there you can contact them for technical and warranty assistance:

Good luck-and please provide feedback if this helps!

You must ensure the deadbolt is in the locked position when attaching the control mechanism. The control mechanism must also be set to the locked position. Turn the manual knob to the left then attach the mechanism (with the batteries) to the flat pin. You can do all of this with the door open, so you can enter the codes. My initial install created the same issue. It worked properly out of the package, so that meant that I screwed something up. You don't need to return the item. Just do a little fault finding.

Schlage BE365 - How do I remove the key? It will lock/unlock door but cannot be removed from lock.


Recommend resetting the lock back to factory settings and try reprogramming. Also if you don't hold the latch while turning the key to lock/unlock the door it may not be recognizing the keys inserted and this will keep the key in place. Try that before resetting to factory just make sure you hold latch and turn key until it wont turn anymore.

If you remove the inside housing from the door, and look inside on the left hand side of the circuit board, you will find a slot marked "L R".
Slide the switch to the opposite of what it is set for. This will solve the problem.

Weiser powerbolt worked well for several months but now is not reliable anymore. Changing batteries did not help. It sounds like it is locking but sometimes fails to lock...we cannot trust it anymore


Hi... You have too be sure that the deadbolt is free when it go inside the deadbolt hole... however this system is very low power and the (over torque clutch) will sleep if the deadbolt it's not completely free.
Also if you try to open the door before you unlock it, you may block the the deadbolt inside the deadbolt hole. Take care too unlock the door before open-it...

Good lock or good unlock
