In this post, I’ll walk you through the steps to find the default Programming Code for your Schlage BE365. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, keep reading.
To find the Programming Code for your Schlage BE365 Lock, check the user manual that came with the lock. The 6-digit code is usually printed on a white label on the front of the user manual.
You can also find the Programming Code for your Schlage BE365 on the back of the keypad assembly—printed on a white label. If you already have the lock installed, you’ll need to remove it from your door to access the back of the keypad assembly.
The video below also shows where the Programming Code is located on the lock and user manual.
So that’s how to find the Programming Code for your Schlage BE356. However, keep in mind that the code may not be valid if it was previously changed. If this is the case, you’ll need to restore factory settings on the lock—to reactivate the default Programming Code.
Restoring Factory Settings on Your Schlage BE365
Here’s how to do that:
- Remove the battery cover. Then disconnect the battery.
- On the keypad, press the Schlage button once.
- Now reconnect the battery. Then press and hold the Schlage button until the lock beeps and the Schlage button lights green. You must complete steps within 10 seconds, else the lock won’t reset.
- If you hear a beep and the Schlage button illuminates green, the reset is successful. However, a red light shows the reset fails—repeat the steps again and ensure you complete the last step in 10 seconds.
If your lock is reset, the default Programming Code is now active, and you can use it to program your lock from now on.
If you would like to change the default Programming Code, see the next paragraphs.
Changing the Programming Code on Your Schlage BE365
- Enter the 6-digit default Programming Code to put the lock in programming mode. You’ll hear three beeps, and the Schlage button will turn orange, showing the lock is in Programming Mode.
- Now press the Schlage button. Then press the number 3 key. Wait until the Schlage button flashes three times, and you hear three beeps.
- Enter your new 6-digit Programming Code. Wait for the Schlage button to flash and beep three times.
- Enter your new 6-digit Programming Code again. You’ll hear one long beep, and the Schlage button will turn green, showing that you’ve successfully changed the Programming Code.
Note that if the Schlage button flashes red, the Programming steps weren’t successful. Repeat the steps and ensure you follow them correctly.
Make sure the first four digits of your new Programming Code doesn’t match an existing User Code in your lock. So check and ensure you enter a unique Programming Code with different numbers from your existing User Codes.
So that’s how to change the Programming Code on your Schlage BE365. To perform any other additional programming, you should enter your current Programming Code as the first step.
Finding the Programming Code for your Schlage BE365 lock is quite simple. As you have seen above, the front of the user manual that came with your lock contains the default Programming Code and User Codes.
The Programming Code is also located on the back of the keypad assembly—requires disassembling the lock or removing it from the door.
However, keep in mind that the default Programming Code won’t work if it was previously changed. In this case, you’ll need to perform a reset on Schlage your lock to restore the default Programming Code.
