Only by knowing the cause of the problem can we know the solution to the problem.

Before we figure out how to solve it, let's take a look at the reasons why the electronic door lock is stuck.


1. The built-in battery has run down.

Although there are electronic door locks with external power supply, most electronic door locks are powered by built-in batteries, such as Bluetooth locks, touchscreen keypad door locks and so on.

So, when your door lock doesn't turn, it's likely that your battery is out of power.

The average battery life is about ten months, you can judge whether this is the problem according to the service time of your electronic door lock.

If you are using Signstek's electronic keypad lock, then this awkward situation will not occur.

It will remind you by flashing red and ringing when the battery is about to run out.

Once you see button flashes in red and hear 10 rapid beep sounds when press programming button, please change the batteries immediately.

All settings are retained in the memory and will not be affected even if the battery is completely dead.

Besides, if you really forget to replace the battery, you can still unlock the door with the traditional spare key. The lock still can be operated by key even there is a power outage.


2. Enter the password incorrectly

Sometimes when the door lock battery is full, you enter the password, but the door lock still cannot be opened, it is very likely that there is something wrong with the password you entered.

In this case, it is possible to press the password too quickly for the first time, so just press it correctly again.
