I superglued a doorbell to a piece of glass in my front door. Now the bell doesn't work and may need to be replaced. How do I remove the doorbell?

The glue has bonded and is on a vertical surface

    I know the directions say acetone, but personally, I have never gotten it to work on any surface or any glue. Try GooGone, but make sure the container says "works on glue". If it doesn't, it won't. If it does, it works great. I would try using cotton balls, pull a couple(however many...)out to wrap around the bell and drip the GooGone onto the cotton slowly. You'll probably need to use a razor blade or something and still slowly work it off.

Acetone...

Just keep in mind that there are FEW finished
surfaces that will stand up to acetone.

The wireless doorbell does not work in our house.


Remove the door bell button and verify that it works not mounted on door frame. If that is the case then you are getting interference from the structure....not necessarily from the door itself but it won't help. The door bell runs on RF and at that distance it will most likely be from electrical interference (too close to an outlet or light switch.)

Doorbell doesn't work


It seems your doorbell transmitter got wet and corroded the contacts.
These push buttons are not sealed at all and thus will let rain, snow etc. eventually corrode the electronics.
Solution: Find a new push button on eBay.

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).

Hi

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

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.

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

Doorbell doesn't complete cycle


What exactly is the cycle? If its a standard doorbell, thats right when you push in it makes contact copleting the circuit. Hence you Get a traditional Ding dong for front door and a ding for a second or rear door. if you release early it breaks the path of low voltage current and does not dong.
With that said is your door bell a custom doorbell, that could change things
