Combo not working

I have a floor safe (Keep Safe 7200) and the combo isn't working.

I searched and found this in Reddit:

Well now for the money shot. Pull the sticker off the center of the dial. Set the dial at 0, put a mark on the safe just next to the dial at the number xxx.. Unscrew that screw, pull the dial up and off. Measure from the center of the screw hole in the direction of the mark you made at xx, exactly x inch. Put a dot there. That is where you should drill a xx" hole. Drill into the door, approximately xx" with a standard high speed drill bit. You will feel the bit enter an air space....STOP. Get a good flash light, look into the hole and turn the post that held the dial. What you are looking for is to line the gates of the wheels up with that piece of white metal you also see in the hole. Once the two gates are aligned, turn the spindle right, the fence will fall into the gates and will retract the two locking bolts. Good luck..and ask questions if you have them.



Which seems fairly do-able, but I need some elaboration (particularly on the Xs) and would really just like to find a way to use the code (already tried +3/-3)


Ideas?

Re: Combo not working

Can't talk about the drill instructions in open forum. Post the combo as you have it. It can be changed later. Did you try BOTH RLR and LRL when dialing?

Re: Combo not working

The combo is x-x-x . Only tried LRL as that the instructions. I think the issue might be rust.

Re: Combo not working

Good combo!

What are your symptoms? Is the dial stopping at the final right turn, but the door can't be removed? Or does it not stop at all and turns and turns and turns? You can try to convince the door to open with a rubber mallet. (Do not hit the dial!) In the second case hit the door on your final right turn so a lever that don't want to drop maybe drops. In The first case use the mallet at the stopping point with or without a little torque on the dial. Start with light tapping. To much force can create new problems.

I read something saying tapping with a hammer on a hardwood block above the levers after completing the combo is what I should do next. Haven't tried yet.


The dial moves to the left but it's tough.
