2 important things which may seem dumb but solved my problem:

- Make sure that once everything is in place, you hold the lock button before inserting battery pack (and keep holding the lock button) until you hear 2 beeps. The latch should come and go.

- Last but not least, make sure you put NEW batteries in... I had old batteries and when i tried it seemed like is was working but could not finish the door direction finding sequence stated above. Make sure they are new and it should work!

Here is a link to the Frequently asked question page for your lock:

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.

Here's a link which tells you how to remove the cover, and reprogram the lock codes:

    He's asking about the Weiser Smartcode, not the powerbolt. The Smartcode does not have a jumper, it relies on an automatic setup to determine direction.

First thing you will want to do is check the warranty for your lockset. If they will cover the lock under some part of the warranty then do that, if not. You could try getting a **** splice gauged for the wire and try splicing it together like that but there is no guarantee that it will work. Most electronic locksets have very sensitive wiring in them and even the smallest pinch on the wire can ruin the lockset. Try cutting out the parts that were broken off and splicing them together.

Dead bolt trys to turn in the same direction

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.

Constant beeping

It sounds like the lock master reset might have been inadvertantly pushed when the coverplate was removed at some point. I would suggest you remove the batteries, reinstall them and reset the lockset and enter in new pass codes (you can use the same ones as before, if you wish).

I've attached the owner's manual, just in case you've misplaced yours, so you can reprogram the lockset and have the instructions for future use and reference.

Just so you know, Weiser and Kwikset were once the same company and offerred the same lock under both names, so don't worry about the manual having the Weiser brand name on it.

Hope you find this Very Helpful - Best regards!

A tenant installed one of these devices in my building, i would like to program my own code into it now

You will need to reset the lockset in order to program in your own lock code. Rather than just provide you with the steps to do that, I thought you might find it more useful to have the complete owner's manual for this lockset, so you can address any other questions or issues you might have with the lock in the future.

Such as having more than one code to allow for you to enter, while giving access to others using a different code, etc.

Here's the manual for the lock:
