Schlage Change Code

Congratulations, you have purchased your new home! One of the features you liked so much about it was the Schlage Keyless Entry Keypad deadbolts and lever handles which provide security and convenience. The only problem is now that you have moved in, you don’t feel secure as the prior owners’ old code is still in the keypad and you don’t have the instructions to change the code. What now?

Here at GoKeyless we want to help you feel that same security you wanted to have when you first saw the locks.  So here at GoKeyless we thought why not provide you with the help you need?  With that in mind here are the instructions to change the code on your BE and FE series Schlage keyless deadbolt locks and lever handle locks:

Step 1: You need to locate the master code for the lock. Without the booklet there is only one other place to find this code. If you take the lock off of the door you will find the master code on a sticker on the back of the front of the lock. It is put there for security purposes as it requires you to have the access and ability to remove the lock from the door. The sticker will have three codes on it. The first one is your six digit Master Code labeled as such and the other two are pre-set four digit user codes set by the manufacturer so that people do not have to set a code unless they want to do so.

Step 2: Now that you have located the Master Code you need to begin by removing the old user code in the lock. If you look at the keypad you will notice that it has ten numbers and above those ten numbers is a button labeled Schlage. We will use the following abbreviations for the sequences: The Master Code is six digits and will look like this: 6DMC. The four digit user codes will look like this: 4DUC. The Schlage button will light up as you do the sequences: It will flash orange once it is in program mode, green when it accepts sequences and codes, and red when something is entered incorrectly. To remove a code you will do the following Sequence:

DELTE CODE: 6DMC + Schlage button + #2 + Current 4DUC + Reenter Current 4DUC Schlage button flashes green.

Step 3: Now that you have removed the code the previous owners had you may worry about there being more codes in the lock.  Well do not worry as we can go ahead and erase all the user codes on the lock with one sequence:

Remove ALL User Codes: 6DMC + Schlage button + #6 + Reenter 6DMC

Note: This removes all user codes but not the master code.

Step 4: Excellent job on removing the old codes now you need to enter a new code for yourself. To add a new code at any time you will follow this sequence:

ADD CODE: 6DMC + Schlage button + #1 + New 4DUC + Reenter 4DUC Schlage button flashes green.

Congratulations once again as you have now reprogrammed your new locks and they are ready use! If you need additional locks or know others who do, check us out at, America’s Choice for Keyless Entry!
