Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
The weiser set should have a tiny hole in the knob or rosette around the knob. A paperclip or such can be pushed into the hole to unlock the door. That is the primary difference between a privacy lock and a security lock.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

For Weiser Door Locks:

Make sure the batteries are working by pressing the lock button on the Door Lock`s keypad. If the batteries are fine, the keypad will light up. If the keypad doesn`t light up, open the battery pack and replace the batteries with fresh Alkaline ones.

What happens if I lose my current key? If you lose the functioning key(s), you would need to either take the SmartKey lock back to the home improvement retailer or an authorized Weiser locksmith to reset the lock, just as you would with any conventional lock. Once reset, SmartKey will function normally.
To fix a misaligned or loose door, tighten the door hinge screws to correct any sagging. If the key still doesn`t turn, your lock`s strike plate may need to be repositioned, which can be accomplished by unscrewing the strike plate and placing it so that the door lock bolt rests flush within the strike plate.
Dirt and dust can sometimes find its way into a lock and build up over time. This can clog up the locking mechanism making it difficult to turn. You can apply some graphite spay or silicone based lubricant in the lock, put the key back in and turn it a few times.
The lock actuator has wires that the electric current passes through to power each part. But if any part has broken wires, it won`t work properly. You can check for this by holding the lock switch down or up and then opening and closing the door. If the lock works intermittently, it could be a broken wire.
Turn button privacy locks are the most common, especially door hardware in the more affordable price points that most of us have in our homes. To lock, simply turn the button from the inside of the door. From the outside they can be unlocked using a generic tool (generally provided with the lock) or hairpin.
These mechanisms use a simple door handle which when pulled up from the inside of the room the latch will extend and lock in place. This will prevent individuals from outside from being able to use the door handle and enter the room.
Make sure the door is open and unlocked. Press and hold the Reset button for 5 seconds, until you hear 3 long beeps. Enter the default Mastercode (O-O-O-0). You will hear one beep.
The lock is programmed with the default mastercode 0-0-0-0.

Today, purchased a Schlage security set-keyed 2 sides home security set that supposedly includes an F-51 series self re-keyable entry door knob.

Have self-re-keyed deadbolt to match previously purchased sets, but the F-51 does not allow me to re-key to match my other sets.

Per instructions, should use re-keying key to turn lock 30 degrees left to an 11 o’clock position, remove, insert re-keying key from previous sets, turn back to 12 o’clock position and remove. Latch should be re-keyed at that point.

F-51 does not allow re-keying key to be removed at the 11 o’clock position, nor any position except the 12 o’clock.

The objective is to have 1 key to open 3 deadbolts and 3 F-51 style door locks. For the 3 deadbolts, mission accomplished. For 2 of the 3 F-51’s, mission accomplished.

Label on box: FB52NSK V PLY 505 605 CN; Function Security Set-Keyed 2 Sides; Style Plymouth Knob; Finish Lifetime Bright Brass\Bright Brass..

Instructions say do not return to store of purchase.

Need to know what carb screw adjustment need to be set at weedeater starts for about 4-7 sec then shuts down put new hoses on checked gas filter and cap checked out ok. i pump the ball about 10 times ,pull cord &starts for about 4-7 sec then shuts down,like no gas or electrical problem. i played with the screw settings & dont know where they shoould be set at . had carb all apart ,put in new plug doesnt seem to matter what i do it does the same thing . any thoughts?also when it starts the motor will rev up when u hit the gas and when it shuts down the gas hose from the tank is still full of gas
ANSWER : If there is a choke adjustment you should set that at full until the trimmer warms up, don’t touch the gas. Then repull start at half choke, don’t touch the gas either at this time. Then start at no choke, and then set your idle on the carberator with the adjustment screw. Also don’t push the primer bulb so many time you will cause the spark plug to get flooded and drown out the spark, which is exactly what is happening.

Our Chamberlain garage door will open, however when trying to close it will flash 10 times and not move. The only way to close the door is to push and hold the garage wall mounted closer until the door is completely closed. If released before the door is completely closed the door will reverse and open again. We cannot close the door using the in car remotes. However we can open the door using the car remotes. So the problem is closing the door.
ANSWER : Hi, W/D here.Check the alignment of the photoelectric door eyes, located at ankle height on either side of the door. Usually, something is preventing the light from reaching the other side (receptor), and check to make sure that the eye lenses are clean. (You cannot actually see the light beam). Check that the lights are on and (usually) green on both sides of the door. These are the indicators that show you that the sensors are working. If one has been knocked out of alignment, it can be re-aligned using a string line, and observing the lights on the light and receptor. Somewhat more common is that one of the wires is either touching the other, or has come loose. Usually, the wires are just twisted together at the eyes. Lastly, if you have no lights lit on the eyes, and adjusting doesn’t resolve the issue, one may be defective. Replacements are available at Lowe’s/Home Depot, and others.Check your lights first, and look for something blocking the path of the light.Best Regards, –W/D–

When the door opens it slams into the unit I did adjust it almost all the way out and it still slams
ANSWER : Are you sure you are adjusting the limit controls and not the force controls.. depending on the age of the opener the limits controls are on the side and the force controls are on the back and they are blue. If you are adjusting the limits and nothing is changing you then either have a bad limit rack or circuit board. I just changed out a rack a little bit ago.
