How to fix a doorbell (Page 2)


Step 5. If the bell didn’t ring, check the transformer, which is probably located in the basement or utility room near your Home service panel. Check the two wires connected to the surface of the transformer, and reconnect them if they’re loose. Test the doorbell by pressing the button. If the doorbell still doesn’t sound, go to step 6.

 

Step 6. If not else has worked, now it’s time to install a new wireless doorbell kit. First, plug in the chime unit to a centrally located receptacle in your house. Disconnect the doorbell switch by your door, and clip off the wires as close to the wall as possible, using lineman’s pliers.

 

Step 7. Install the battery into the battery compartment of the doorbell button. Co outside your front door and press the button to make sure the chime rings. If not, you may need to move the indoor receiver to a receptacle closer to the door.

 

Step 8. Mount the button to the door frame where you removed the old doorbell. You may have to drill two new holes before securing the new but ton to the wall with screws. Some doorbells come with double-sided tape that can be used to secure the button to the wall or to door molding. Push the doorbell button to make sure it works.
