Why can't I get my safe open?

Expert's Assistant: The Gunsmith will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

I have just a combo safe. I have the correct combination. It won't open. I have turned 3xs and then 2xs then to the last number it still won't open. Help!

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

It is concreted into the floor.
