Presumably the lock is defective.

I don't know if this is the best answer, but I would try to slip a heavy credit card between the door and the jam where the knob is. It may be a quick solution for the moment.

Have you released the knobs? They are held on with a small depression thing on the stem of the handle. Press this in and pull on the knob to release it.

Try the video it may be of some help but do the opposite
to the fitting.

It could be that you are trying to add a code again as well. You can not have the same code in say space one that you have in space 5.

My Kwikset lock has been working beautifully for several years now, and it is handy to not have to use keys.

If you can't figure out the programming, and want to start from scratch, with mine I believe that you remove the battery pack, press in on the program button for ten seconds, and reinsert the battery pack while still holding the program button. That erases all of the stored codes, and you can start over again.

None of what you described sounds like a locking issue, but a programming issue.

Remove it, lubricate it and put it back. I have the same unit and they are reliable. If yours is a bad fit into the door, that is your problem and the tenants have forced it. The bolt should slide in easily into the mortise. The weather is changing, so the door has moved a bit.

Ideally, you should have a Schlage Knobset as well as the locking deadbolt. The deadbolt is not for locking the door, it is a failsafe for when you are out or at night asleep. The same key opens both. The knobset has a spring loaded catch and a knob on both sides. The inside one has a turn button to lock or leave knob unlocked.

Misalignment of the lock mechanism probably caused by uneven tightening or overtightening of mounting screws.

* your best bet would be to remove lock set and take it down to your nearest Home Depot, Lowe's, City mill, Ace Hardware, etc. It's a pretty common lock brand. The store key maker, door hardware section should be able to help.
* I've found it's best to replace the lock set as these combo locks only last about a year in heavy traffic areas. Especially if it's exposed to weather.
* Constant opening and closing shakes things up real good. Lots of small wires and plastic parts break all the time.
* Key pads wear out fast. Especially if the code is not changed every month.
