It could be that you are trying to add a code again as well. You can not have the same code in say space one that you have in space 5.

My Kwikset lock has been working beautifully for several years now, and it is handy to not have to use keys.

If you can't figure out the programming, and want to start from scratch, with mine I believe that you remove the battery pack, press in on the program button for ten seconds, and reinsert the battery pack while still holding the program button. That erases all of the stored codes, and you can start over again.

None of what you described sounds like a locking issue, but a programming issue.

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.

I have the same problem, electronic locking system went dead but still beeps, stuck using keys now...according to the kwikset website though it says "Warranties cover the original residential user of Kwikset Products against defects in material and workmanship as long as the original user occupies the residential premises upon which the product was originally installed." so hopefully they will fix the problem

SOURCE: exterior key for deadbolt just turns around and around.

From a pro-locksmith: Kwikset uses a clip type retainer to hold their tail piece in place and keep the cylinder plug from coming apart. It sounds to me like the retaining clip has backed out slightly and is not engaged with the tail piece. If it backs out further the entire plug assembly, tumblers and springs will pull/fly out. Its a trip to a locksmith, parts in a baggie. Remove deadbolt, push clip back in and oil area.

Hi Shirley,

Rod Herdman and pro-locksmith here. ProNova is correct. You will need to replace your lock. Kwikset's Smartkey has many flaws. It should never have been released. Replace your lock with a pin tumbler type of lock.

Need a video how to program my keyless entry deadbolt lock


Which manufacturer made the keyless deadbolt lock? Make sure that the batteries are good in the unit.

I have an older Weiser Powerbolt deadbolt lock that is programmed by taking off the cover on the inside of the door. This model has handheld remotes and the keypad. Inside there are three yellow buttons. Two match the cover's lock and unlock buttons. Press and hold the third button (in the center of the set of buttons). Then enter program in the code within a few seconds and press the enter button to set the code. If the unit beeps again, the code is set. If the unit doesn't beep, retry from the press and hold the Program button step.

Another model of the Weiser Powerbolt lock has the Program button either on the top left or lower right hand side of the board (depending on the way the door opens) under the cover. Press the Program button once and then enter the 4-8 digit code. Press the Lock button to set the code. If you hear a long beep, the code was accepted; otherwise try to program your code again.

Kwikset Powerbolt locks are programmed the same way as the second Weiser Powerbolt described above.

Kwikset SmartCode locks have their Program button in the center of the bottom of the control board. Otherwise the programming is the same as that given above for the second version of Weiser Powerbolt locks.

MiLocks have three buttons in a horizontal line. The left-most button is the Set button. Press this then enter the code followed by the Unlock button. The code must be entered within 5 seconds of pressing set.

Baldwin Hardware's Boulder series of keyless entry deadbolts are programmed just like the Kwikset SmartCode units.

I don't know of any videos. Most manufacturers do have PDF files with the programming instructions.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your deadbolt for extra assistance.

(I end up replacing the batteries often on the lock I have; it seems like they last 6 months or less.)

I have a Defiant Electronic deadbolt from home Depot. model G1X2D01. ive lost the manual and i need to delete some old codes from it.


Snap off the back cover (opposite where you punch the numbers) by pinching the sides and pulling off. Do not press a pen or anything into the small light, you do not need too. Just pinch and yank off cover. You will see a small light and beside it is a small SET button by the batteries, it is labelled.. Press this Set button for 2 seconds. The red LED will light on the front code side and beep twice to indicate you are in programming mode. Enter your current code that you want to change (factory set is 12345) and then press the button that looks like a little lock on the keypad. Enter the digits "10" and press the lock button again. Enter the new code (must be six digits) and then press the lock button again. The red light should go on continously for 10 seconds. The code should be effective.
Note: if you have problems like we did, you can also remove one battery and press the "set" button simulataneously when you reinsert the battery. This resets the factory code of 12345. Then you can start over. For some reason our old code was only 4 digits, but it would not let us reprogram a 4 digit code. It didn't work until we did a 6 digit new code.

The lock is beeping. I put new batteries in and reset the code and it still beeps.


Here is a link to the installation and programming instructions for your lock:

http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/content/BDHHI/kwikset-smartcode

Starting with Step 7 (battery replacement), it is very important that you follow the procedure very carefully throughout the rest of the steps.
If your problem persists, there is contact information at the bottom at the instructions sheet to enable you to pursue parts and further technical advice directly from Kwikset.

Good luck!

I installed the Kwikset 907 model last night and it was working fine. Tested it several times, showed the family, etc...Everything worked great. My son left for 10 minutes and came home and it no longer...


Why is my Powerbolt beeping?

Follow this link to find out how to remove the cover for your Powerbolt:

http://www.kwikset.com/Customer-Support/Product-FAQs/Faq/50160000000HhhEAAS.aspx

This link:

http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/content/BDHHI/40486-02

is the "manual" for the installation of the lock. Programming instructions are found on Page 6.

I'd recommend changing the 4 alkaline AA batteries at the same time.

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

6. Resetting the code: - please follow these instructions to reset the code on your Powerbolt 1000 unit:
  • Remove the inner cover plate from the lock.
  • Locate the small round program button near the left side of the circuit board (Red or Black).
  • To program, the latch should be extended out in the lock position, press the reset button once, then enter your 4-8 digit code on the exterior keypad, then immediately press the middle lock button on the exterior keypad. You will hear a beep. Re-enter the same 4-8 digit code to confirm, the latch should retract. This completes the programming. This signals that your code has been accepted.
  • To enter a second code, follow the same procedures as in step 3, but this time press the reset button twice then enter your code.
7. Replacing the batteries: - please follow these instructions to replace the batteries on your Powerbolt 1000 unit:
  • Remove inner cover plate located above the thumb turn on the inside of the door

  • Ensure that the batteries are correctly oriented or unit will not function properly.
