SOURCE: Hello I have now got 2 (two) of these units

This looks like the Heath Zenith SL6162/63


I have the pdf of install manual if you would like it. This wireless doorbell has over 128 codes that prevent outside interference. Here's part of the manual for changing the code:

Note: Most installations will not require you to change any of the jumpers
on your doorbell.
The doorbell button and chime communicate by using a code that can be
changed by removing and/or adding jumpers on both the doorbell button and
chime. The code is factory set; however, there are 128 selectable codes that
allow you to expand your system and prevent outside interference. Another
wireless doorbell system or other wireless products may cause interference
and the system may not function properly. Follow the instructions below for
setting a new code.
1. Disconnect the power to the doorbell button and chime.
2. Open the cases and locate the jumpers on both the doorbell button and
chime (See illustration).
Attach the back of the
case to the door jamb or
wall. Snap the front of the
button back on.

Doorbell Button and

3. The doorbell button and chime both have eight different jumper locations.
The jumper positions 1 through 7 are used for setting the code.
4. To change the code, add and/or remove jumpers as needed. There are 128
different combinations. It is recommended to only change one jumper at a
time and then check to see if system is functioning properly. Note: Jumpers
in positions 1 through 7 must be exactly the same for both the doorbell button
and chime for this system to function.

SOURCE: The button you must push

Sounds like the contacts in the button are either dirty or have been bent a little. Try cleaning them and repositioning the contacts if necessary.

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.

IF its not 1) the battery contact, nor 2) the pin settings (must match in both units and they can come off) if may be broken button unit.
Heath-Zenith (I believe they bought DESA) makes a battery remote push button bell that says its compatible with all Heath Zenith chimes. I bought one at Home Depot and it worked for my SL-6195-RX. (an online doorbell seller and the Home Depot assoc all said it wouldn't work.)
UPC is 16963961975.
Item also shows a code "11G43" on a sticker on the back of the package.

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 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).

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 a door chime SL-6195-RX with outside door push button. I have changed batteries in both units and still does not work.

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.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

From User Guide: Interference from a similar unit operating nearby: a) simply remove the batteries from the push button and door chime units and rest for 10 seconds, this will erase memory b) Insert the batteries into the push button and door chime units, the door chime unit will give 2-beeps to indicate that it is ready for the new registration code. Press the Push Button once, it will generate a new operation code randomly and send a wireless ignal to the door chime unit and it will sound to indicate that new operation code is registered and memorised.
(Note with this unit SX85R the door chime is mains powered, not battery powered, but above instructions are the same)
