On the main unit see if the red light comes on (indicating it is transmitting) when the wired chime rings. If not, there is a little manual trigger button (to the left of the battery compartment) press this for a second, if the red light lights up then it is transmitting. If the chime unit rings, it means the main unit isn't picking up the wired chime noise. This happened to me, for no apparent reason. By sticking the main unit directly on the top of the wired chime unit, the problem was solved.

Do you need to replace the batteries in the chime button or the receiver? To change the batteries on the doorbell (chime button) for most Carlon models, you need a ballpoint pen first to remove the chime button from the back. Press the pen point in the small round hole at the bottom of the button. Then gently push in on the tab. Finally rotate the chime button cover up and away from the back cover. Next take the ballpoint pen or a small screwdriver and place it in the slot below the top battery. Lift the battery up. Repeat this with the second battery. Then place the replacement CR2032 batteries into the battery compartment one at a time with the positive side up.
For the most of the wireless receivers, press the center of the brass tubes and lift those free to replace the 4 D cell batteries (2 behind each tube). A few models have a more obvious battery cover for a set of 4 AA cell batteries.

No longer do you need a wired door chime or traditional doorbell with brass tubing to get amazing, rich sound. Our Battery Operated Door Chime from Dimango has CD quality sound while remaining completely wireless...
power cycle the system then hold star and pound that is a back door into programming hit #20 that will tell you the installer code then hit *99
once you have the installer code hit (Installer Code + 5 + 0) if you want to change the master code hit installer code + 8+02+new code + new code to create a new code
You may need to change the frequency of the chime. In this model, you need to remove the batteries from the receiver unit and wait for a while. Then replace the batteries. The doorbell unit should automatically set itself to a different frequency once you press the button, which will(hopefully) solve the problem.
It seems impossible to find the instruction manual for the doorbell. But see http://oddsnsods.net/blog/?p=68 who had a similar problem with a different Siemens model, which works on the same principles. (I can't seem to be able to remove the battery from the door bell unit on the jsjs204, but it reset itself after changing the batteries in the receiver).
The contacts in the outside push button unit may need cleaning. They do get dirty over time. If that doesn't solve your problem you can contact the Zenith Company, who is now is the manufacturer for tech service issues. 800-858-8501.
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.
I had the same problem - turned out to be a cordless phone nearby. If you have one, try moving the bell away from the phone or vice-versa. Another possibility is a neighbour with the same code. There are some jumpers you can move around to change this.
