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.)
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
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.
1. Change the battery in your remote
2. Are you using you remote in the same way as your wifes, ie on the cars sun visor, try putting both remotes in the same location and activate the garage door with both remotes several times if yours fails your remote has an intermittent fault.
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.
