    I have two of the same model wireless chimes which are not new.  Single button at the door activates both when it works.  Thought the battery was dead.  Changed battery.  Works when I hold the button in my hand and maybe once when I snap it onto the wall.  Found that while holding it the button will not work in the vertical position.  If I hold the button down and rotate to horizontal, it works.  Cannot mount it horizontal at my front door.  Need a fix or a new button.

The wireless doorbell does not work in our house.

Remove the door bell button and verify that it works not mounted on door frame. If that is the case then you are getting interference from the structure....not necessarily from the door itself but it won't help. The door bell runs on RF and at that distance it will most likely be from electrical interference (too close to an outlet or light switch.)

How do i add a second switch to my rc8233r?

I would try Ebay first (or search the net for availability and prices). I bought CR2032 3V Button Cell (that are used in my Carlon door chime buttons) batteries. I got 10 for under $5. Carlon (Thomas & Betts) still makes a variety of door chimes and accessories. However, on their site, the prices are atrocious. But, I think that Thomas & Betts deals in bulk (as in dealing with retailers). Because they list their items in bulk price form. I personally have 5 T&B wireless door chimes. Hence, 4 of the buttons are in storage. Out of curiosity, I tried all of them. All 4 extra buttons rang all the door chimes. Caution, on the packages of the door "chimes" I purchased. There's a blurb on there that states the wireless buttons for the "door chimes" will not work with the "doorbells". If you have the packaging for the one you have. It will explain. I'm not positive, but it seems the variance is due to whether you use battery or electric powered models. Hope I was of assistance...Greg

I bought a new Chamberlain garage door remote control (Model 953EV/EVC) but my garage door opener is date 1991. Can I get this remote to sync with it? I have one remote dated 1993 that came with the...

The 953EV/EVC remote is designed to work with garage door openers at 315MHz (more or less). Your older unit doesn't work at that frequency. I'm not positive but it could be 300MHz.

You need a retrofit unit to use the new remote. See for one that works with Chamberlain units.

I hope this helps.

Chamberlain remote garage door opener is intermittent

You probably have interference from somewhere. I had the same problem, turns out it was the LED light bulb I put in the opener. As a result, the door would always open, but hardly ever close. I called this intermittent, but there clearly was a pattern.

Trying to reset the code for my DESA wireless doorbell but the only combination that works is 5,6 & 7. Need another code because neighbor has that code.

It would appear that there are pins in both the ringer and door button and you have to change them so they match. To remove the door button, slide the case straight up slightly (maybe 1/8 inch). Pry the top of the case away from its base and slide down to remove the entire button assembly. The pins are inside, next to the battery. 5/6/7 seems to be the default, so any other combination of three pins should solve your neighborhood conflict. (Don't use pin 8. That one changes the ring from a two-tone chime to a 16-note sequence.)

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.

Wireless door bell not working

Generally speaking the doorbell with the 1 thru 8 and the receiving unit should also have the 1 thru 8 tabs. Just make both units have the same positions for the 1 thru 8 and you should be all set.
