Question about Desa International White Wireless Plug In Door Chime

1 Answer

Dings sometimes with out pushing the button ??

What would cause this ? Door bell rings with no activation of push button. I understand that this can be caused by some other wireless frequency out there. How do you program for different frequencies? Or can this be done on the Heath Zenith SL 6166-RX-A wireless door chime?

I believe there are either dip switches (or old-fashioned "jumpers" in both the button (the 'transmitter') and the dinger (the receiver). See if this is the case, and that the dip switches (or jumpers) are in the same position in both units. Then, simply switch one of the dip switches (or jumpers) to another 'position' in both the button and the dinger. There ya go...

Siemens model jsjs-210 door bell manual to chnge radio band


Siemens door chime jsjs-210
Without doubt the worst piece of design I've ever encountered.
The battery housing on the chimer is so large that on closing the lid with the batteries fitted they pop out, nothing holds them in place other than the contact elements - the case snaps shut with quite a jolt and the batteries just pop out...had to use a padded envelope cut to size to keep them in place.
Also the button unit is dreadful - the button isn't actually a button - it's a light, pushing the button just flexes the circuit board and activates a small push sensor on the reverse of the circuit board!?! WHY? A button that isn't a button? The sensor is also too short to touch the rear of the casing and thereby close the circuit - had to pad this out with 2 bits of cardboard...too much it will ring all the time, too little it won't connect.
Please do not buy this product - if you have return it, it is dreadful - and from Siemens it's not even funny.
Apologies for not answering the question directly - I was also searching for a manual for this, to maybe figure out why this device is so badly constructed.

Phantom bell rings on Siemens wirreless door bell chime jsjs-204, I do not have instructions


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).

Hi

To fix the issue you need to remove the batterys from both the bell push and the bell unit for 10 mins, then replace the batterys and then push the bell push so it can switch channels and be different from the house down the road

I have just purchased a wireless doorbell but it does not explain how to change the tune, please help.


Most wireless Door bells go ding-dong! Does your doorbell play Greensleves, or Home on the Range?

Did you get 2 buttons with it?
One is for the front, which makes the bell chime one way and the other is for the rear and it makes it chime differently.

Sandra, the contacts in bell push may need cleaning, as well as some minor readjustment of the contacts. Insects love to get into the bell push and can clogged it up. If you find that this doesn't solve the problem, Contact the Zenith Company 800-858-8501 to purchase a replacement.

While driving a bell ringing happens when i make a right turn. sometimes the bell rings continually while i'm driving. what the problem?


Sounds silly but this is how i fixed my bell ringing. !st the ringing is the alarm when you open the door and the key is in the ignition or the car is running. I found the push switches that are on the side of the car and are operated when the door is shut have become loose. All you need to do is tighten them up a bit and the bell ringing will stop. When you make your right turn you probably push a bit on the door and that helps open the switch more. The switches are the contact switches that turn on the light as well as the warning sensors for open door. See if your dome lights flicker a bit as well.

You need to change the pin configuration in both the remote buttons to match each other, (as well as the bell unit) just make sure they match on both bell units. Also, since one works just use that configuration and change the button pin configuration that does not work to the button that does on the other button unit.

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
