  • Relock time is too short. With the door open, push the inside handle down. Lift the outside handle to throw the lock. If the lock throws and the hooks are seen then the locking time has expired. Refer to User Guide page 16 ‘Changing the Locking Time’ and increase the relock time period.
  • The spindle is not installed properly. With the door open, push the inside handle down. Lift the outside handle to throw the lock. If the lock does not throw and the hooks are not seen but a whirling sound is heard then the spindle has been fitted incorrectly. Refer to Installation Guide page 2 section 3 ‘Fitting the Spindle.’
