and then turn left to last #

educatortech :

Try handle

educatortech :

Most models work with the first method but there are some that are "backwards" and require the second process.

educatortech :

If this does not work, let me know and we can continue to troubleshoot

Neither solution works. What does the line "d then left to last" mean ?

Hello, and thanks for your question.

My name is Cheryl and I have been an Expert on Just Answer since 2006. It will be my pleasure to help you.

Here are instructions for opening a typical dial-combination Meilink safe:

1. Turn the dial left past the first number 3 times and stop on the forth time.

2. Turn the dial right past the second number twice and stop on the third time.

3. Turn the dial left past the third number once and stop on the seond time.

4. Turn the dial right until the dial stops at the last number.

5. Turn the handle and open the door.

If the above instructions do not work, the dial mechanism/tumbler may have suffered wear and tear by the rapid spinning of the dial, so follow these directions:

1. Run the combo with all numbers one number low. Example: Combo should be 50-25-50, run 49-24-49.

2. If this doesn't work, try one number high.

3. Continue in 1/2 number increments up to 3 numbers off in either direction.

4. Once the door is opened, the combo should be changed and tested before being shut.

6. If the door cannot be opened, it must be drilled.
