Hi .......this is an old safe and probably is in dire need of some lubricant ........what you can try is to put in the combination............tap around on the door (hinge side not necessary) with a rubber or wooden mallet while lifting the handle ..........you might need to try this a few times .....if it opens, then empty the contents from your safe, lube those moving parts including the hinges with WD-40, flex the handle a few times shut it and see if that did the trick.......use WD40 especially on the opening mechanism inside the door and those locking bars............. please let me know

Thanks
