Hi there. I think I have the same GE chime. It has a series of 4 dip switches on the bell (base) and also in the switch unit. Just make them the same. On mine for example, switch # 1,2 & 4 are up (on) and #3 is down (off). Any combination of 16 codes should work as long as both units are the same. Just as an aside, I had a problem with mine working intermittently, then mostly not at all. It was the actual pushbutton switch inside the button unit. Luckily, I replaced the micro-switch and it's working again. Also during cold wet weather, the 12v battery gets depleted faster than normal probably due to moisture inside the switch unit. I taped a piece of plastic from a sandwich bag over the switch unit to help keep water out.
I hope this helps.....

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...

While this is a little bit of a stab, if you replace the batteries in both units, do it at the same time, If the batteries are known good ones, simply take them both out and let the units sit for about 5 minutes before you put them back in. Make sure the battery contacts are clean and devoid of corrosion. Put them back together without pressing the button. I assume it is of the newer "self learning" style. In which case, hold the ringer button down until the chiime goes off.
If it is one of the optical greeters, there would be a setup switch position that allows you to focus/align the reflector for the greeter. Usually it keeps chiming until the alignment is correct whereupon it shuts off when things are right. Then you reset the switch to normal. If no switch for set up at all- just follow the same procedure until it stops. You can usually "eyeball" them pretty close without effort.
