2 lights. 2 switches and a buzzer. how to connect them to make the buzzer sound when a light is turned on


Copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/3-way-circuit-with-buzzer-300.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-switches.html#3-way

Above illustration assumes that buzzer is rated for 120Volts.

If doorbell buzzer is rated for 12-24 Vac, then copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/3-way-circuit-with-buzzer2-300.jpg

You need contactor with 120Volt coil. The light switches turn on light. At that moment, power goes to 12-24V doorbell transformer from hardware store. At same moment, power goes to magnetic coil on contactor. The contactor is a switch, and it connects wires between transformer and the doorbell buzzer. Buzzer turns ON.
When light turns off, buzzer turns off.

When door bell is pushed the chime unit playes through all of the songs instead of just one.


The unit is receiving electricity so low-voltage transformer and button are working correctly.
Only suspect left is door chime itself.
Check that voltage of transformer matches voltage of chime.
Use cheap multimeter from home center and check voltage at chime, or check transformer.
Doorbell transformers are usually located in basement or garage or attic, and most are hardwired into octagon box.
There are no replacement parts for door chimes.
Buy new one, or contact seller for refund if this is new chime.

I removed my nutone door chime transformer a while ago to work on an electrical problem. Now i want to reinstall it but don't have the instructions. The transformer reads nutone class 2 LR2982 10va 16v


I couldn't find a manual for the LR2982, so I'll give a general description of how to wire a door chime. Most chimes have 3 contacts. F (Front), R (Rear) and C (Common). Some have just two contacts. If your chime has more than 3 contacts do _not_ follow these instructions.

Inside the junction box on the wall where the chime will be mounted, you should have at least 2 cables (usually brown) each, with at least two wires (usually red and white) each. One of those cables goes to the transformer and the other cable goes to the door button.

The beauty of it is that since it's only 24 volts or less and _polarity_ doesn't matter, you don't need to know which cable goes where for a _single_ door button scenario.

For _single_ door button wiring, pick a wire (say the red) from one cable (doesn't matter which cable) and connect it to the "C" contact on the chime. Pick a wire (say the red) from the _other_ cable and connect it to the "F" contact on the chime (if the chime has 3 contacts). If the chime only has 2 contacts connect it to the only contact that is left.

Then all one needs to do is twist the 2 remaining wires together (both white) and cap them off with a wire nut.

If your junction box for the chime has 3 cables in it, the extra cable goes to a rear door button. In that case you _do_ need to know which cable goes to the _transformer_. You can pick up a cheapo voltmeter for about $10 just about anywhere. The cable that reads anywhere from 16 to 24 volts AC between the red and the white wires is the cable that goes to the transformer.

Make sure one of those wires from the transformer goes to the "C" contact (pick one, say the red). Now you know the 2 remaining cables go to the front and rear door buttons. For now, just connect a red from one of the remaining cables to the "F" and one red from the other remaining cable to the "R". Then just twist the 3 remaining white wires (including the white wire from the transformer) together and cap them with a wire nut.

If the rear chime sounds when the front door button is pushed, just swap the wires on "F" with the "R"contacts..

Connecting a Heath Zenith Doorbell 172C-A


Do you have a transformer with it? Apparently this doorbell can operate on AC or DC (3-6VDC or 8-16VAC). The usual method is to supply 110 VAC to a transformer with an output of about 16VAC. ------ BE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING WHEN DEALING WITH 110VAC. HAVE A CAPABLE ADULT HELP YOU WITH THIS! ------- Connect one of the two outputs from the transformer to one of the terminals on the bell (this might be labeled COMMON) The other output from the transformer will go to your handheld lead (like in the Operation game). Connect a lead from your patient (as in the Operations game) to a terminal on the bell which is probably labeled for AC.

Doorbell doesn't complete cycle


What exactly is the cycle? If its a standard doorbell, thats right when you push in it makes contact copleting the circuit. Hence you Get a traditional Ding dong for front door and a ding for a second or rear door. if you release early it breaks the path of low voltage current and does not dong.
With that said is your door bell a custom doorbell, that could change things
