IQ America Wired Doorbell 8-note westminster Model DW-2840 needs a diode


For the IQ America doorbell (mine is a DW2860), the diode that was packaged was a 1N4004. Search for it on eBay. They are very cheap.

Drivers-side rear door won't engage-interior bell chimes constantly


Make sure the rear cargo lid is shut. Then if it still appears to be the door, then remove the jam switch in the door sill. The switches usually separate the wires when the door closes. You do not want to lose the wiring inside the doorjam and you do not want to leave a hole open either.
Tie a string on the wiring and/or tape the wiring to the doorjam until you can get a new switch. Tape the wire ends to prevet shorting.

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.

We purchased the Heath/Zenith TR-0081-BX Wired Door Bell. However, we can not get the chime to continuously play without holding the bell down for expended period of time. How can we fix this? I lost the...


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. My diode just "shorted" after I power-washed my house...and I am in search of that particular part. I contacted Heath Zenith...hopefully they will give me a solution on how to get only that part. In any case, you need that diode to get the chime to play correctly.

My bell rings when my neighbor pushes his button and vice versa how do you correct. Model SL-6166-RX-A purchased at home depot.


Take the back off the 'bell' and you will see two rows of gold colored pins running parallel to each other, eight pairs I think. Three of these pairs of pins will be covered by jumpers. Jumpers connect two pins together.
Pull any one of these jumpers off it's pins and move it to any other pair of pins.
Make note of which jumper (the pins are numbered) you moved and to which pins you moved it.
Now, take the cover off the 'button'. You will see an identical set of jumpers and pins to those in the 'bell'. Duplicate there, the change you made to the 'bells' jumpers.
Ghost rings solved!
Ok, ok, on the wild outside chance that the problem persists, just move another set of pins.
Remember, the jumper configuration in the 'bell' and 'button' ' must be identical.

Microwave Oven Door Spring Replacement


Remove the front panel by removing the screws located on the inside of the door (note hold door inplace, since it is heavy and will fall out after screws removed). Unscrew screws located on bottom of plastic retainer (2 each) Remove tension spring. Note 2 are included right and left. Note color of spring on end, different springs for different door types, stainless, black,beige or white. Replace all in reverse order.
