If it ever warms up here I'll have to check ours. One of our keys has the key code listed in the recall.

That particular lock set has been a bit wonky from day one. I just thought it needed to be used a bit to get it to loosen up. I sprayed it with WD40, but still stiff as all get out.

Good to know they'll do both even if only one is affected. I may have to finally look into this so I can get the two doors keyed the same. I hate having to remind everyone which key is for which.

Phil,

When you check yours, try the key in both directions. I had tested mine and couldn't pull my key out in the 'jammed' position, so I didn't think we had the recall. Then later my wife was able to do it. A little experimenting showed that if I put the key in one way, it could pull out, but if I turned the key over, it worked fine.

Okay thanks Kaadk.

Door lock

Happened to us at the RV park-could not get in rv. The truck keys and spare rv key was inside. Worked and worked and finally broke off key inside lock. Went to the park office and they had a number to call lock smith. $78.00 later, fixed, still under warrenty so we stopped at the place we got it and they replaced it, no charge. Just wonder if I could get that cost to fix it back.

I hope that works for you but I'd be worried about putting any grease in a lock
in cold weather! There are dry lubes specifically for locks.

Recently found my house iron security door dead bolt stuck in the locked
position. It was about -10 at the time. When it warmed up the lock worked. I know you probably won't be trying to use your door lock in sub
freezing weather but it's something to consider.
