Hi.................what we can try at first is to play with this handle so that we can get it open put in the combination and then press in on the handle and turn it until it grabs........you may have to try this several times........more than likely you need to replace the handle......or obtain a new safe .............the priority is to get the safe open and then empty the contents.............please let me know if this will work if not we will have to think of something else

Thanks
