How To Change The 4 Digit Code On A Schlage Lock

Schlage is the leading manufacturer of residential entrance door keyless entry systems.

As long as you know the programming code, you can have up to 19 separate users coded to run the lock and can uninstall a user at any time. To activate or disable the lock’s vacation mode, or to make other programming modifications, such as turning the lock’s beeper on or off or activating the switch lock, you must have the programming code. You can enable or disable any one of these codes whenever you want.

The keyless entry mechanisms of Schlage’s younger generation substitute mechanical push buttons with touchscreen buttons. And Schlage keyless lock-sets use blue-tooth and wireless solutions in the new models that allow you to program and control the lock using a smartphone, or with Amazon Alexa or a similar device through voice activation. You can store as many as 33 separate individual user codes on these electronic versions.

The instructions shown below are based on the usual keyless Entry lock-set push-button. You need to get familiar with the style of the keyboard and the code method before you start, though.

How To Change The 4 Digit Code On A Schlage Lock

Two Types of Codes

First, there is a programming code of six digits that is used to enable the lock-programming set’s features. The first step in programming individual four-digit user codes would be to enter this code. This security preset comes with your lock, but you can change it to a code of your choice as well.

Second, Four-digit user codes still exist. They are the routine codes that in regular service would act as the “keys” to unlock your door.

Two Types of Buttons

There are 10 digit buttons on the outer face of the keyboard, plus a “Schlage” button located at the top of the keyboard. Both the six-digit programming code and the four-digit user codes can be entered using the number keys.

Let’s start with How to Change 4 Digit code on a Schlagle Lock FE575, FE595 and fe695 ?

Steps

Step 1: Write down the 6-digit programming code.

Locate and write down the six-digit programming code for your Schlage keyless entry. This is the first code you will input, and it will activate the lockset, allowing you to perform all of the programming. The original programming code can be found on the yellow label on the installation instructions for your keyless lockset or on the backside of the deadbolt lock.

Frequently Asked Question:

How to find Schlage programming code?

Your Schlage Lock Programming Code is normally placed on a white label on the front of the user handbook.

Remove the lock from the door to discover the Programming Code—printed on a white sticker on the back of the keypad assembly if you don’t have the user manual.

What should I do if the red Schlage button is blinking even though no codes have been entered?

If the red Schlage button blinks without even entering your code, it indicates that the lock is already low in battery.

Why am I unable to create a new user code?

One of the reasons for this is that your Schlage lock already has 19 codes. You can remove one user code and replace it with a new one.
Another cause might be that the second code you entered differed from the first. Re-enter the code if necessary.
It’s also possible that the new code you typed was identical to your programming code.

How do I enable vacation mode on Schlage FE575, FE595, and fe695?

Here’s how to do that:

  1. I have unsuccessfully attempted to change the 4 digit entry code on a home I recently purchased. I do not have, and cannot attain the programming code unless it is still on the back of the lock. Before I remove that, in the event the code has been removed, what are my options? As far as I can surmise, I have the Satin Nickel Camelot with Flex-Lock and Accent Lever model but no idea on when that may have been installed. Please advise.

    We have recently moved into a house with the Schlage lock. There is no key to unlock it and we have been unable to pull the front part down to get access to the 6 digit code. When we asked the previous owners, they said they googled it and changed it that way. We have been unable to find how to do it without the 6 digit code. Is there a way to change the code without needing the 6 digit code? And if not, how do we get the code box off if there is no key to it?

    1. H Automations

      You have two options: either get the manual from a previous owner or you have to open the front part from the inside direction of your house to get the 6-digit code… if you failed to use both options then you have to replace the lock with the new one…
