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.

Will my wireless bell push work with another manufacturers door chimes?


Doubtful they are compatible. If they are set by dip switches and you set them the same bot doesn't work-not compatible.

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).

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.

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.

'Doorman' chimes keep chiming, without bell being pushed


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.
