Hi there,

If the green light is not showing when the correct code is entered then the mechanism may be jammed.
Try thumping the door a few times with a rubber mallet to see if that helps loosen it.

If you need further assistance, please confirm the model number of the Sentry safe.


Happy Holidays :)
