Here are a few of the common Schlage Be365 problems and troubleshooting steps against them are as follows:
Schlage BE365 Programming Code Not Working?
How to Troubleshoot
So here’s what to do if your Schlage BE365 Programming Code isn’t working:
- Check Batteries
- Check Whether the Code is Correct
- Reset the Lock
- Contact Schlage Support
Low battery power might have an impact on the performance of your lock. This might be one of the reasons why the Programming Code isn’t working.
Replace your lock’s batteries and try the code again to see if it works. Make sure you acquire the correct battery—the Schlage BE365 requires one 9V battery. Also, make certain that the battery is properly installed—based on the right battery polarity (+/-).
Continue to the next troubleshooting step if the code is still not working after this.
Check Whether the Code is Correct
As previously said, you may be using the incorrect code. So the next thing you should do is double-check the code.
If you haven’t modified the Programming Code in your lock, the default Programming Code is still in use. The default Programming Code for your lock may be found in the user handbook (written on a white sticker).
If you don’t have the user manual, you may check the rear of the keypad assembly for the code, which is also on a white sticker.
If you can find the code, confirm if it’s the exact code you’ve been using and try using it on the lock to see if it works.
If it doesn’t work, chances are you’ve previously changed the code. Perhaps you acquired a previously owned lock, and the previous owner changed the code.
If this is the case, continue to the next step.
Reset the Lock
If the lock still does not operate after replacing the cam arm, there might be a problem with the lock’s programming. Fortunately, a fast reset should be enough to get ahead of any issues, and your lock will resume normal operation. If you’re still experiencing the same issue, be sure you reset the device to factory settings.
To reset the lock, you just have to remove the battery and then press the Schlage button for a few seconds and release it. At this point, you need to put the battery back into the lock and then operate the unit. Make sure to immediately put the battery into the lock after releasing the Schlage button. Otherwise, the system won’t reset, and you will have to reset it again.
Schlage BE365 Not Engaging
How to Troubleshoot
Except for Check Configurations and Fix Cam Arm, you must go through the same checklist as described above while troubleshooting programming code.
See the detail above.
Within the programming options of Schlage Locks, you may toggle the “Turnlock” function on and off. This function is in charge of keeping the deadbolt engaged and locking your door. So, if you’re certain that your lock is powered, it’s likely that you mistakenly switched off the “Turnlock” option of your unit. The Schlage BE365 will not function until this functionality is activated.
To resolve this issue, simply enable the “Turnlock” option, and the deadbolt will begin working properly. To enable this feature, enter the personal code to enter programming mode, then press key 7 to toggle between these options. Once the functionality is enabled, you can attempt to exit programming mode and operate the lock.
The unit will start working as long as the cylinders in your lock are in perfect condition. So, if your purchase was recent and the lock is not damaged, this issue should be fixed at this stage. With that said, if you’re struggling with toggling on the “Turnlock” feature, going through the owner’s manual will help you with complete instructions.
Fix Cam Arm
Many people have pointed out that if you don’t correctly install your Schlage lock, the cam arm can cause this problem. By pushing the Schlage button on the keypad, you may readily verify this issue in the lock’s installation. If the installation went smoothly, pressing the Schlage button should turn the keypad blue. If you observe a bright green light on the Schlage button, you’re most likely dealing with installation issues.
You must dismantle the lock and then place the cam arm vertically. This will take some time, and you’ll need to remove the battery as well as the internal base plate to get to the cam arm. Once the cam arm is properly oriented, be sure you tighten it up. After that, replace everything and try using the lock again.
This cam arm can also collapse into the housing in certain cases, causing problems with the locking mechanism. Even if you’re confident that the cam arm’s position is precise, tightening up the system should help.

Schlage BE365 Programming
If none of these solutions help you get ahead of the problem, you’re probably dealing with a faulty cylinder in your lock. It isn’t much you can do about this except replace the faulty cylinder. Unfortunately, it is a difficult procedure, and it is best to consult with a professional at this stage. There is no use in attempting to repair the cylinder yourself if your equipment is still under warranty.
Simply file a warranty claim and have your dealer take care of the problem. Even if your warranty has expired, consulting with an expert should help you fix the majority of Schlage lock issues. So, if you want to save time, include professionals in the troubleshooting process right away.
Otherwise, you’ll be spending hours attempting to figure out what’s wrong with your equipment. Having said that, the majority of customers were able to resolve their difficulties by resetting the lock and replacing the batteries. Hopefully, you’ll be able to fix your lock without spending any more time.
