Before you attempt to unlock your Samsung door lock from the inside, it is important to make sure you have the right tools and knowledge to do so. First, make sure you have a Phillips head screwdriver. Also, double-check the brand of your lock to ensure that you have the proper instructions. Finally, research any special instructions for your unique model, as some may require an additional step or two. Let’s get started!

Gather the necessary tools

Before unlocking your Samsung door lock from the inside, it is important to gather the necessary tools. The most common tool you will need is a Philips-head screwdriver. Some models of Samsung door locks may use a different type of screw, so make sure to read the instructions carefully before attempting to remove any screws from your door lock. In addition, you may need an allen wrench or flathead screwdriver, depending on the model and brand of your lock. To open a locked Samsung door lock from the inside may also require that you have a drill and drill bit so that you can drill away some of the casing around the locking mechanism if necessary. Gather all these tools prior to starting any work on your door lock in order to ensure that you complete this task safely and efficiently.

Put on safety glasses

Before beginning, it is important to ensure your safety. Put on appropriate safety glasses prior to any work being completed. This will help protect your eyes if any sharp pieces of metal come loose during the process and also from any flying debris that can occur when a tool is in use. Depending on what type of lock you have, additional protective equipment should be worn such as leather gloves, protective clothing, etc.

Disassemble the Door Lock

One of the quickest and easiest ways to open the door lock on your Samsung door is by disassembling it. This involves removing the screw on the interior side of the door, taking off the cover, and loosening the latch itself. Be sure to take your time and be careful not to damage any of the components of the lock. Once you have successfully taken the lock apart, you can start the process of unlocking it.

Remove the screws from the back of the door lock

Removing the screws from the back cover of the lock is the first step in disassembling your Samsung door lock. Before you begin, make sure that all power to the device has been turned off. Unscrew each of the four screws located on the outside edge of the lock unit, and then carefully remove them with a flathead screwdriver. Once all screws have been removed, you can carefully lift off the exterior casing to reveal the inner workings of your Samsung door lock.

Remove the cover from the door lock

Removing the cover of your Samsung door lock from the inside may seem daunting at first, but it is actually a pretty simple process. Depending on the type of door lock you have, it may require a Philips or flat-head screwdriver and some other tools.

To begin, make sure to check if the latch is locked on both sides. Generally, there will be an indicator near the handle or knob that you can use to determine this. If you do find that it’s locked on both sides, there should be a small lever behind it that lets you unlock it without having to take off the cover.

If not, then grab your tools and proceed to disassemble the door lock from inside. Begin by inserting a Phillips head screwdriver into each hole in order to unscrew them. After all screws are removed, carefully pull off the cover of your Samsung door lock in order to access its inner components and inspect for any signs of damage or wear. Finally, using your flat-head screwdriver and other tools as needed depending on the model you’re dealing with, remove all screws which will grant you access to its internal mechanisms in order for them to be serviced if necessary before putting everything back together properly.

Unlock the Door Lock

Unlocking your Samsung door lock from the inside may seem like a daunting task but with a few simple steps, you can easily unlock it in no time. Whether you need to open the door for a visitor or you’ve accidentally locked yourself out, getting back inside can be hassle-free with the right know-how. In this article, we’ll be covering exactly how to unlock your Samsung door lock from the inside.

Locate the lock mechanism

In order to unlock the Samsung door lock from the inside of your home, you should first locate the lock mechanism. This can usually be found at or near the top of the door. The lock mechanism itself is an assembly that houses several different parts working together to secure your Samsung door. It will most likely comprise a metal plate with a stainless steel handle attached, along with a cylinder and a latch tongue. On some models there will also be metal buttons that assist in releasing the door from its locked state. Once you have identified where the lock mechanism is located on your door, you are ready to begin unlocking it from the inside.

Disengage the lock mechanism

Once you have located the appropriate release lever, pulling it will disengage the lock mechanism. On some models, this lever is electronic and can be operated by pressing a button; however, others may require that you turn the release handle or insert a key in order to twist and disengage the locking device. Be careful while moving this lever; it is possible to cause damage if pulled too forcefully.

Once the lock has been disengaged, you will then be able to open the door handle from inside your home and allow yourself safe access. Note that following this process may not always be successful. Additionally, unlocking a door lock from the inside is generally intended only for emergency situations, as most Samsung guest houses have a front desk security system for entrance purposes at all times when occupants are not present in their respective rooms.

Reassemble the Door Lock

If you have successfully unlocked the door by using the interior button, your next step is to reassemble the lock. This is important so that the door remains secure and safe. It is essential to replace any screws you may have removed during this process.

Using a screwdriver, carefully replace each screw back into its designated place – making sure they are securely fastened in place. It also helps to apply furniture polish or oil directly to screws before inserting them into place. Doing this helps lubricate the metal screws and prolongs their life-span for a long-term solution. Once all screws are in place and properly tightened, check one final time that latch is working properly by pushing and pulling from the inside panel or knob; it should spring open with ease when pulled from its latch on the inside of your door.

Once you’re confident that it’s secure, go ahead and close your door – your Samsung Door Lock should now be safely locked.


If you are having difficulty unlocking your Samsung Door Lock from the inside, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can take. From checking the batteries to checking the connection cables, this section will provide an overview of the steps you should take to troubleshoot the issue. Keep reading to learn more about troubleshooting your Samsung Door Lock.

Replace the lock mechanism

If you are still having trouble unlocking your door and you have already tried the other troubleshooting steps without success, you may need to replace the entire lock mechanism. Before you do this, make sure that there is not an underlying issue that needs to be addressed if possible.

The first step in replacing your lock mechanism is to remove the existing one. Depending on the type of door and lock, this can either be a straightforward or a more complicated process. Generally, it involves unscrewing or removing the existing mechanism from inside or outside the door. Once it has been taken out, note down any details from its exterior such as color, size or shape so that when purchasing the new one, you can match it correctly.

It is recommended that you purchase your replacement lock mechanism from a reputable local locksmith, as they will have all of the necessary tools and parts needed for installation. If there are any special parts needed for installation then they should also be purchased at this time. Your locksmith will then perform any necessary modifications on-site to ensure a perfect fit before installing and testing your brand new door lock!

Replace the screws

If the door lock still does not respond even after you have made sure the batteries are working, then the next step is to check if the screws are properly holding in place. Over time, screws can become loose due to wear and tear. Carefully check if all three screws (top, middle and back) that hold the parts of your Samsung Door Lock together are fully tightened and secure. If any of them appear to be loose or have come out completely, then tighten or replace them as needed using a Philips screwdriver. Make sure that they are firmly secured in place so they won’t slip out again. Once you have replaced all three screws, try unlocking your door from the inside again to see if it works properly.

Test the door lock

Before attempting to unlock your Samsung door lock from the inside, you may want to first test its effectiveness. Testing your door lock ensures that the device is viable and functioning properly. To do so, take the following steps:

1. Make sure that the door is closed and locked.
2. Insert a small flat object (e.g., a flathead screwdriver) into the keyhole on the outside of the door and turn it counterclockwise until you hear a click or feel a tugging vibration within.
3. Place your hand on the inside knob and attempt to turn it counterclockwise while keeping pressure on it with your other hand. If you are able to rotate it in either direction despite adequate resistance, then you know that this portion of your Samsung door lock is not effective and should be adjusted or replaced altogether. Additionally, if there is no clicking sound upon insertion of the flat object or little to no pressure when attempting to rotate within, then this could also indicate some sort of malfunction or jammed internal part in need of repair or replacement as well..
