Hi Patrick,

The regularly used buttons tend to wear out on these keypads, so try to select a new number that does not use any of the old digits.

To change the code, first enter your existing code then push the button that says "code"
Enter 0 and 2
Enter your new FOUR DIGIT code.
Enter your new FOUR DIGIT code again and you should hear a beep at the end

Try your new code as you normally would.
