First of all you need to find the voltage requirements of the bell. Do you have access to the 8 buttons? The bell will have some elect. info on the back or something. The power would feed all the buttons in 'parallel', then each button could power the bell when pushed. Probably some attic work here....

If there are lamps associated with the system, first find what voltage they are. Try to trace where the wiring goes to find if there is a source. It is even possible they ran the thing on old dry cells if it is very old. Some buzzers REQUIRE AC power, some will operate on DC. The power source WAS probably near the central indicator for the system.

What am I doing wrong?


If your Orbit system is 8-10 years old, the timer may be worn out. This is especially likely if the timer is electromechanical rather than digital.

How do I connect the pwer,reset,pwr led, hdd led on packard bell iextreme m5730 motherboard, serial number PTU300X0109251007D


They have a crappy website. I couldn't even find a motherboard diagram in the manual. You can determine which is the power pins by trying plugging the power connector in on each set of pins and pushing the power button until it starts. It needs to be plugged in when you try pushing the power button of course.There would be around 10 pins in two rows the power pins would be on the same row. they should be near the edge of the mother board and usually the power button pins are on the row furthest from the edge. I can't guarantee that though

What is a call bell?


A bell was originally a musical instrument that has been adapted through the years for many other uses. One of these variations of the bell is the call bell, which can very well resemble the original instrument in its hollow, cup-shaped acoustic resonator, which vibrates upon being struck. The call bell can either be hanging, so that the person can move its clapper (the little "tongue" by the mouth of the bell) and produce the sound, or it can be sitting on a table or counter and upon pushing on its top, the clapper inside will shake and produce the calling sound.
It was used in the past centuries to call servants or help. It is nowadays used mainly in hotel receptions or by elderly people who need their help\'s assistance.

How to change crankshaft sensor jeep YJ


Raise the front of your Jeep with a jack and position a set of jack stands under the front axle to support it. Lower the jack, allowing the Jeep to rest solidly on the jack stands.

  • 2 Locate the crank position sensor in the bell housing of the Jeep from under the driver's side. Locate and remove the two retaining bolts that secure the sensor to the bell housing, using a socket and ratchet.
  • 3 Follow the wire from the sensor to the connector on the engine. Release the lock on the connector and separate the sensor wiring harness from the engine wiring harness. Remove the sensor and harness from the Jeep and discard it.
  • 4 Position the new sensor on the bell housing and install the two retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket and ratchet until they are snug. Do not over-tighten these bolts or you will strip the threads out of the aluminum bell housing.
  • 5 Route the wiring harness from the sensor to the engine wiring harness and push the two connectors together until the locking tab snaps in place. Be sure to route the wiring harness away from sharp edges or heat sources.
  • 6 Raise the front of the Jeep off the jack stands with a jack then remove the stands from under the truck. Lower the jack and test the repair by starting the truck and verifying that it runs properly.

    Ensure that your electric eyes are aligned.
    Disconnect the opener from the door and run the door down & up by hand. Does it move smoothly?
    Most openers only require momentary contact to get them to open or close.

    There is a little "diode" that should have been provided as part of the unit...it's a little wire with a B-B-sized circuit in the middle that has to be connected to the push-button at the door. This "extends" the circuit from the button to the chime unit for the full 8-notes. Hopefully you still have that part (I just about threw out mine before I read the instruction manual thoroughly.

    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.

    Victorian Servant Bells


    I would try contacting a renovator or an electrician. Either one of these will have the tools to track down the wiring and will have the knowledge required to help you track down any needed parts.
    Hope this helps.

    The electromagnet that causes the bell clapper to move when the circuit is closed by pushing the button is failing. Replace the bell unit.
