Schlage knob replacement

Hello,

My front door has a handle set on the outside with a regular schlage knob on the inside. The inside knob fell off and is dented so am looking to replace it. It has a separate deadlock so I do not need a locking one. I have been searching for a replacement but was told the dummy knob wouldn't work because it doesn't turn. I don't need the passage one because I don't need the strike or the knob for the exterior since the handle set I have is fine.

Do I need to purchase the passage knob and just use the inside knob to replace the damaged one?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Depending on the age and design of your lock, buying a new passage set and using the inside knob may or may not work. Schlage has had several designs of handlesets over the years and they're not all interchangeable. I believe if you've got a residential grade handleset of recent vintage, the inside knob from a standard F series passage set should work, but I couldn't swear to it. Are your interior locks Schlage as well? If so, chances are they are F series, so you might try and see if one of them will work,
