Doorbell stopped working

My doorbell stopped working after many years of use. I replaced the battery in the switch and it still did not work. I took the new battery out, replaced it with the old and then put the new battery in and it rang once. Now what do I do?

Check the contactor in the doorbell. It may have some "yuk" on it preventing it from making contact.

Indoor plug in device works fine but doorbell isn't despite changing batteries.

Salutations Helen Wahlen,

If you DO NOT have a RESET procedure in the MANUAL... Remove ALL power from both units... (battery from the base ...if equipped).

Re-Plug the base unit close to where the button is mounted
and restore all batteries & power and start the INSTALL instructions from the beginning.

Failing that.. DISCLOSE what in the world we are discussing (make, model... year, etc) and we can give it more appropriate attention... (resulting in better advice),

Happy hunting!

Doorbell doesn't work

It seems your doorbell transmitter got wet and corroded the contacts.
These push buttons are not sealed at all and thus will let rain, snow etc. eventually corrode the electronics.
Solution: Find a new push button on eBay.

The doorbell buttons and your receiver must be on the same channel. If you will get out the directions that came with your unit, they will describe the process to go through to reset the specific "codes" for your buttons and receiver.
