Please utilize the rear lock knob for a manual opening to identify the issue. If the lock remains unresponsive to the knob, check for a misaligned latch, necessitating disassembly and correction.

  • Whether the unlocking direction is set correctly;
  • After closing the door, check whether there is any jamming in the expansion and contraction of the lock. If so, it is stuck by the gusset plate or foreign objects and needs to be corrected manually;
  • Is the password correct?
  • If there are more than 5 incorrect verifications, the alarm will sound. Wait for 3 minutes or use the APP to unlock;
  • Reset the lock, and then troubleshoot according to the above method.

4. Why can't the latch retract normally?

  • Please confirm if there is a significant deviation in the position and size of the door hole. Remove the lock, place the hole template against the door for inspection, and remove any interfering materials at the identified locations, such as chiseling or drilling holes.
  • Check if the installation direction of the knob or latch is incorrect. If so, remove the lock, and refer to the instruction manual for proper correction.
  • Check if the latch is obstructed by any foreign objects. If so, remove the lock, inspect the door hole, knob, and lock tongue to ensure they align with the specifications outlined in the instruction manual.
  • Remove the latch plate and, using a Phillips screwdriver or a thin tool, check if the lock tongue extends and retracts smoothly.

This issue is usually caused by an installation problem. Please kindly check if the spindle is positioned horizontally and properly aligned with the the latch.
