Might be beeping because the batteries are low and need replacing. Battery access is inside the door.

If you have the instructions you might find removing the batteries for a time might lose the combination so you can programme your own, alternatively, you could just remove the batteries and continue to use the key but I strongly suggest you fix yourself up with a spare key and make a note of the number if possible.

Open the unit and trace the power cord connection from the wall plg wire to the FIRST connected control inside the unit. Voila!

Adjust the distance to the chime on the B U M setting. Go into the duffilator chip settings control and twist clockwise until this disappears. Shouldn't take more than a 1/2 turn or so.

Contact a locksmith and ring lots of money.

Best bet would be to try and contact the prior owner and ask for it! Should have left such instructions for you as part of the sale/exchange. Just try asking if it's possible to do so.

Yes, of course. Call customer service at Century and ask for customer service. They'll tell you how if you have the precise model and perhaps serial number of thee unit of which you speak. Google their number.

Sorry, they vary, unless your have some electronics knowledge and can read the color bands on the resister. Then you need to Google for a components parts place, find the name of a distributor, set up an account and hope they'll sell you one. Not likely since they like to spend time on quantity sales. I know -- I was in that business. But it'll cost you less and save a ton of time to just replace it entirely with one from Home Cheapo or Lowely's.

Be sure the safe door is held in tightly enough for the sensor to register it is in the right position for the lock to engage when you are pressing the "close" key sequence.

Buy a new one, and this time right it down in a Master Password List that only YOU know the location of. But don't forget that, or you're screwed again!
