Hi community, I am generally happy with the operation of mu UL3 BT lock and ease of access.However, I have had issues with the latch and wanted to see if anyone else has had a similar experience. Basically, the gears in the mechanism inside the latch appear to break in about 18 months under normal use conditions such that I have had to replace it a couple of times already (have had the lock for about 3 years).
@ZarehK The ticket 96768 has been created, please check the email.
I have a similar issue. I use my finger or the app and I hear it signal unlock but no gears engage and it will do this many times. I have changed the batteries and it still doesn’t work. I have tried to call the help line but the number is not working.I am not sure how to progress

This definitely seems to be a problem. I installed my Gen 2 early this year, the clutch failed after a few months and U-Tec sent me a replacement clutch. Installed that in May and have a third being shipped now as that one is starting to fail (hand up works, handle down does nothing) . I will install that one next week but this will be the last time I do it. There is obviously a known issue with the clutch assembly (seemingly the most basic part of a complicated BT/Wifi lock) as they keep shipping them to me.
I have a similar issue. I thought the lock was sticking but now when I look at it I can see the latch doesn’t fully depress and causes the door to ‘stick’.
I originally thought maybe something shifted inside so I went ahead and took it all apart then back together… nope… same thing. Since then it kept getting worse to the point I couldn’t open the door any more… my last ditch effort I shaved down the wood behind the plate and set it back a bit, but now back to the ‘stick’ situation where I need to give it a shoulder to get it open.
Needless to say the latch or mech won’t be happy for long & will prob just end up physically breaking. -only reason it hasn’t broken yet is because its at my condo 3.5hrs away and is used very infrequently… my ears are wide open for any suggestive paths to a resolution…
@Martire The problem should be caused by mechanical parts inside. Please submit a ticket directly. Ultraloq smart lock comes with a lifetime warranty for mechanical parts and 12(UL1 / Combo and Bridge) to 18(Other Models) months for electronic components from the date of delivery.
