Question about Heath Zenith SL-6136-WH Basic Solutions Wireless Switch and Plug-in
We had a pretty wild storm in Maryland recently...the power went out and when I came back home the next day, I quickly discovered my door bell was emitting a one-note gong, continuously.
Normally it plays a whole 8-note Big Ben melody, which is great because I'm almost deaf and it gets my attention. BTW the product thingie isn't recognizing the description so I'll mention it's a heath/zenith decorativfe wireless chime, either 6180 or 6280 series; the manual doesn't say how to distinguish them but I'm guessing it's the 6280 because of the more complicated melody.
I tried taking the batteries out, hoping it would reset, but when I put them back in, it starts up again, even now that a few days have passed. I have the manual but it's not much help. I would really appreciate any thoughts on this because it took me 2 years to find a door bell I could really hear :''}.
Thank you in advance for any thoughts :''} or especially solutions! Cassie
Possibly check the outdoor push button. It may be possible that it has moisture in it causing a short.

I have this problem every now and then. I just fixed mine - knock on wood. I smacked it lightly, cleaned the lens and the eye. Then I turned on the switch for a minute, switched to TEST, waited for a minute, then I switched to 1 min. (you should hear an internal "click") and switched the light switch off and on again. Waited for 1 minute and it shut off.
Hope this helps. Buy "Made in USA" whenever possible to prevent problems like this.

Do you have a transformer with it? Apparently this doorbell can operate on AC or DC (3-6VDC or 8-16VAC). The usual method is to supply 110 VAC to a transformer with an output of about 16VAC. ------ BE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING WHEN DEALING WITH 110VAC. HAVE A CAPABLE ADULT HELP YOU WITH THIS! ------- Connect one of the two outputs from the transformer to one of the terminals on the bell (this might be labeled COMMON) The other output from the transformer will go to your handheld lead (like in the Operation game). Connect a lead from your patient (as in the Operations game) to a terminal on the bell which is probably labeled for AC.
