Check wiring . Did you use a staple gun on wiring as I know a friend who did this and put staple through the wire shorting it out .

I had to replace the doorbell button, now the doorbell only buzzes instead of chimeing. I have tried three different buttons and they all give the same result. Whats wrong?


This has to be a setting of dip switches that got changed somehow on the chiming unit. Open that up and check the settings.

No longer do you need a wired door chime or traditional doorbell with brass tubing to get amazing, rich sound. Our Battery Operated Door Chime from Dimango has CD quality sound while remaining completely wireless...







  • Plays three selectable sounds



    1. Ding Dong


    2. Dong


    3. Westminster Chime Click To Hear Sound!




  • Set sound conveniently at button




It seems that there is a button on the receiver/speaker. Try press once and see if the sound changes.

I have a IQ America doorbell with 5 chimes and 5 tunes and the bell only plays a sorta gong which cannot even be heard How do I fix this problem so that it plays a chime/tune?


We had a similar problem with a wired doorbell. There is a diode in the doorbell itself that causes the chime to ring fully. If the diode is backwards, you get just a small tone and can only hear the full chime if you hold the button down. If this sounds like your problem, open up the doorbell at the button end (or have an electrician do it) and reverse the diode.

Have had major snow storms in the past few weeks. Installed, prior to storms, new door chimes that worked. Since the storms, neither the front nor side bells function. The bell button has a light on...


Most times, doorbell problems are button, especially since indicator light shows you have power.
Take off front doorbell button and see two wires.
These wires are low voltage and safe to touch.
Use screwdriver and touch both screws together, or remove wires from button and then touch two wires together.
If doorbell rings, then replace button.

If bell still doesn't work then scratch two wires together and look for static-type spark that says wires have power.
If wires have power, and you crossed both wires and bell didn't work, then new door chime is suspect.

If wires do not have power, then transformer is suspect.
Open following link to see example transformer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/attic-transformer10.jpg
Transformers are located in basement or attic.
Scratch a wire across both screws on transformer and look for static-like spark.
If no power, then check circuit breaker.
Home centers sell transformers in the doorbell section. They are 12 and 24 volt. Check markings on old transformer.

If transformer has power, then new door chime is suspect.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

How do i fix my doorbell


99% of the time, you need a new doorbell button
Also check if any circuit breakers are tripped
Check GFI breakers in baths and kitchen

Real-estate lady answer: buy a new doorbell button and connect 2 wires on back of new button.
Doorbells are low voltage and not dangerous.
If screws are loose in the holes, break off toothpicks in hole so screws have something to bite.
You need small screwdriver:

Repairman answer
Doorbell problems have 3 parts
1) The button
2) The chime or bell located in house
3) The 12V or 24V transformer located in attic or basement
4) rarely the wiring because it's low voltage and does not get hot

1) start at the button.
Remove button from wall
There are two LOW-voltage wires on back of button
Remove 1 wire and touch other wire, copper to copper
Does doorbell ring? Do you see a spark?
If bell rings, then button is bad

2) Chime or bell doesn't ring when button wires are crossed
Take cover off chime
The button works, so have helper push button while you're looking at chime
Can you hear any noise? Have helper push button on-and-off
Chimes have 2 or 3 wires >>> 2 wires if only front door has button, 3 wires if back door also has button
Take one wire loose and scratch it across each of the other wires
Remember front button is held down (or front button wires are twisted together)
Can you see a spark when wires are scratched together?
Try this with more than one wire ... but don't mix up location of each wire
If you are getting a spark, then chime is getting power, but it's not working
Replace chime

3) Transformer in attic or basement looks similar to this:
f6ff230.jpg
Use a wire and scratch across both screws to see if you get a spark
If you get a spark ... and the crossed wires dont ring the chime... and there is no spark at chime, then there is a bad wire
If no spark at transformer, then check circuit breaker
At last resort, but new transformer at Home depot in the doorbell section near light department

The doorbell buttons and your receiver must be on the same channel. If you will get out the directions that came with your unit, they will describe the process to go through to reset the specific "codes" for your buttons and receiver.

I changed the batteries on my door bell, and it still wont ring


Troubleshooting
Chime does not sound:
• Make sure the doorbell button and the chime codes are the same (See pages
2 and 3).
• Check orientation of doorbell button battery (See page 3).
• Check the doorbell button and chime batteries, replace if necessary.
Batteries seem OK, but the chime does not work when installed:
• Do not mount the chime or doorbell button on metal or near metal studs. This
reduces the transmitter range. Use 1/4" to 1/2" (6 to 13 mm) wood shims to
move the chime or doorbell button off the metal surface.
• Don't mount the chime too close to ground level concrete slabs. This may
also reduce the range. Mount the chime away from the floor.
• Try different locations for the chime closer to the doorbell button. Also try to
orient the chime at a different angle to increase the range.
The range of the doorbell depends on location, temperature and battery
condition.
