I have a Sentry safe that I bought probably 10 years ago and

Customer Question

I have a Sentry safe that I bought probably 10 years ago and never used. Today I was going to put something in it and accidentally turned the knob and now despite having a key, it won't open. There is a number on the key of 716121. Can the safe combination be determined by the key code?
JA: Just to clarify, have you double-checked the code? And what is the exact make and model of your machine?
Customer: I have no idea if there is a make/model stamped on the inside but I couldn't find any markings on the exterior
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I never used the safe and it was open. I turned the knob after I closed it and I thought I had the combination in a password ***** file. Unfortunately, I was wrong.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

I found my combination to the Sentry safe that I inquired about at 5:49pm EST. Therefore I don't need anyone to investigate my issue. No one has contacted me at this point and I would like my $5 fee refunded to my MasterCard.Rick Piotrowski***@******.***

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Hi Rick, do you still need help with this?
If so can you tell me the model?
If not, you can cancel from the help page.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No I don't need help anymore as I found the combination. I sent a request that my MasterCard be refunded the $5 fee since I was no longer in need of assistance . Can you facilitate the refund to my card?

No, responding here does not accomplish that, you may do so from the account/help page.
