Replaced batteries, now I am getting 3 sets of 2 loud beeps everytime I unlock the door with either code. Also the green light is continuously blinking.
The troubleshooting instructions (link here)
will tell you that you will get a series of quick beeps when the batteries are installed correctly and making good contact.Conversely, the low battery indicator light on the power board will be lit when the batteries need replacement. Kwikset recommends that you use four quality alkaline AA batteries.
Also, Kwikset recommends that if your Powerbolt is beeping, that you take out the batteries and remove the powerstrip. Let it sit for one minute, then put the batteries back in and wait for another minute. If it does not beep, as in above for battery replacement, then the keypad needs to be replaced. If the unit beeps, then the powerboard needs to be replaced.
Is it at all possible that, when you replaced the batteries, you did not get the orientation correct for one or more of the batteries? Did you use new, brand-name alkaline batteries?
So, I've taken you through the steps that a Customer Service Rep is going to ask you before you make a call. If the problem still persists, then it's time to make that call. The number is 800 327-5625, Mon.-Sat. between 7:30-4:00. Pacific coast time. They should be able to assist you further with troubleshooting and parts.
Good luck-and please provide feedback if this helps!
