How to Delete all User Codes on Schlage Lock

In the following paragraphs, we’ll show you how to remove all User Codes on your Schlage Keypad Lock. You’ll also learn how to delete a single User Code and add new User Codes. Sounds like you? Then let’s get started.

How to Delete all User Codes on your Schlage Lock?

Here are the steps to follow to delete all User Codes on your Schlage Lock:

  1. Through the keypad, enter the current Programming Code (6 digits) of your lock. Next, wait for the Schlage button to light orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  2. Press the Schlage button. Next, press key 6 and wait for the Schlage button to light orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  3. Enter the Programming Code (6 digits) of your lock again to complete the operation.
  4. If successful, the Schlage button will light green once, followed by 1 long beep, indicating that all User Codes have been removed.

That’s all you need to do to delete all User Codes on your Schlage Keypad Lock.

Note that this method will delete all User Codes in your Schlage Lock at once. If you want to delete a single User Code, follow the steps below:

  1. Enter your current Programming Code. Then wait for the Schlage button to illuminate orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  2. Press the Schlage button. Next, press 2 on the keypad and wait for the Schlage button to light orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  3. Enter the User Code you want to delete. Then wait for the Schlage button to illuminate orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  4. Enter the User Code you want to delete again.
  5. Now the lock will light green and beep once, showing the User Code has been deleted.

If you want to delete more User Codes, repeat the steps.

If you’ve removed all the User Codes in your Schlage Lock, you’ll need to add new codes—to be able to lock/unlock the deadbolt via the keypad. That is, you can’t unlock the lock via the keypad if you have no User Codes programmed, so you need to add new User Codes.

How to Add New User Codes on a Schlage Lock?

Here’s how to do that:

  1. Enter the current Programming Code of your lock. Next, wait for the Schlage button to light orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  2. Press the Schlage button, then press 1 on the keypad. Next, wait for the Schlage button to light orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  3. Enter a new User Code (4 digits). Then wait for the Schlage button to light orange three times, followed by three beeps.
  4. Re-enter the new User Code to complete the process.
  5. If the operation is successful, the Schlage button will light green, followed by one long beep—showing the new User Code is now active.

You can repeat the steps to add more User Codes. Most Schlage Keypad Locks allow users to add up to 19 User Codes.

If you have trouble deleting all User Codes in your Schlage Lock—perhaps you have lost your Programming Code. If this is the case, you can restore default settings on your lock, then use the default Programming Code to reprogram the lock.

Let’s look at how to restore factory settings on a Schlage Keypad Lock. But first, you need to find the default code—located on the back of the User manual that came with your lock.

If you don’t have the manual, remove the lock from the door to find the default Programming Code—on the back of the keypad assembly. The code is usually printed on a white label. For Schlage Encode, see how to find the default Programming Code here.

That said, if you’ve found the default Programming Code, you can proceed with the factory reset. See how to do this below.

Restoring Factory Settings on a Schlage Keypad Lock

Here is how to restore factory settings on your Schlage Lock:

  • Remove the battery cover. Next, disconnect the battery.
  • Press and release the Schlage button on the keypad.
  • Now connect the battery back.
  • Press and hold the Schlage button until the status light turns green, followed by a beep. This step should be completed in 10 seconds.
  • Your Schlage lock is reset. To confirm if the reset is successful, enter one of the default User Codes (printed on the white label along with the Programming Code). If the bolt moves after entering the code, the reset is successful.

Wrapping Up

So that’s how to delete all the User Codes on your Schlage Lock. However, the process requires you to enter the current Programming Code of the lock.

If you’ve lost the Programming Code, you can reset the lock and then use the default code to delete and add new User Codes.

The guidelines in this post work for various Schlage keypad lock models—such as Schlage Touch, Schlage BE365, FE595, and FE575.
