Firstly, I think the reason yours stops working is because when you first plug-in / switch-on the power, for the first 10-seconds, the bell is in 'programme' mode. Press the button to connect with the bell and it is then programmed. Sorted. However, if you unplug, have a power-cut, etc. then the button is no longer connected to the bell and needs to be programmed again.
FYI - when in programme mode almost any remote (which is what the button is) can be programmed to ring the bell (e.g. television remote)... so ensure you don't press any other buttons within the 10-seconds 'programme' mode!
My problem is, even after I programme my button to connect, it stops working after a short while. Please let me know if this is happening with yours and if you ahve any solutions.
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
Well Bell and Howell have a website, so i would suggest rtying them first to see where the distributors local to you are. Or you can contact a camera store and see if they will accept it as a repair or supply the parts
This all depends on the design of the unit, if its a fixed frequency then you would need to ensure that the second unit matches the frequency, however if the design allows you to "select"the frequency, usually by a small group of switches then there should be no reason why it wouldnt work, your best chance is to look at your exsisting setup and see if its got any way of setting the frequency, or if it doesnt buy a different unit that is capable or learning a frequency, i apologise for not being able to give a more direct answer on this but i hope it helps!
