Re: Cole file cabinet with safe

Try again, slow down dialing speed. Look into the peep hole on back, slowly turn your dial Left (Counter Clock-wise) minimum of four full rotation. If you don't see your gate pass under the fence, you should keep spinning the dial until you find the gate. If the wheel you're watching is not moving.., lock may be broken, or you have not made enough rotations in the same direction. Let us know what you observe.

Actually start right/clockwise. That is easier in the end. Latest when you made three full turns there should be movement visible.

I've done both left and right turns, slowly, for many rotations in each direction. Beginning to think the mechanism is broken, but I appreciate all the help that was offered!

In this case you will find your answer only when you remove the back cover of the door.
