    Hi Jo Ann Morgan, we want to help you with your question, but we need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    Does the doorbell have toggle switches in it. Or different channel numbers. What make and model number is it ?

    I also had such a problem. I bought a solar wireless doorbell from Ebay. This produced false ringing 2-3 times a day. Then I noticed it was ringing in the thunderstorm, even in lightning. I disassembled the receiver and checked it thoroughly. The problem was the melody IC inside it. Unfortunately datasheet could not be found (IC). Then I discovered that when I use a tweezers to touch one of the pins of the melody IC, it rings one. This is probably a ringing trigger pin that has been left floating, nothing sticks to it. I soldered a 33nF 0603 SMD capacitor to gnd, since then there is peace. It is worth trying this pin pin trigger to see if another model has made such a design mistake. I had such a problem:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Home-Chime-Door...
    Melody F3-52B is about IC pin 8.
    But the safest solution, instead of pinch testing, is to pull the pins individually to VDD, GND with a 1Kohm resistor.
    Good luck, all the best.

I answered this earlier! And there is one further answer in your three identical posts.

They pick up signals from taxis and tow trucks. On some you can change the channels. Unfortunately the problem of 'wireless'.

SOURCE: my pushbutton doorbell activates my neighbor's chime

in the chime box and remote you can change the setting for the remote signal that is picked up( refer to your manual for the correct settings) these will be a set of pin connections in the chime box and in the remote switch that will have to be set to another selection

SOURCE: dings sometimes with out pushing the button ??

I believe there are either dip switches (or old-fashioned "jumpers" in both the button (the 'transmitter') and the dinger (the receiver). See if this is the case, and that the dip switches (or jumpers) are in the same position in both units. Then, simply switch one of the dip switches (or jumpers) to another 'position' in both the button and the dinger. There ya go...

SOURCE: chimes ring when you open drivers side door no keys in ignition

Sounds like the contact for the key chime in the steering column is shorted to ground. The only way to get the contact is to buy the clockspring. If you can live with it leave it alone. The clockspring is labor intense. You have to remove the airbag,steering wheel, and trim around column. If you ar mechanically inclined you could just disconnect it by cutting the wire going to the chime. It is under the key tumbler. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Wireless doorbell rings by itself

Doorbell button is sticking or slightly pressed in. Check to see if cover is installed correctly. It may be on on one side.

SOURCE: wireless door bell rings when no one there

most likely on the same frequency! They have a pretty good range on them, I'd go but a different brand!

Rind doorbell doesn't stop ringing


it is possible that the doorbell button is sticking down and keeping contact - so the doorbell keeps chiming.

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).

When door bell is pushed the chime unit playes through all of the songs instead of just one.


The unit is receiving electricity so low-voltage transformer and button are working correctly.
Only suspect left is door chime itself.
Check that voltage of transformer matches voltage of chime.
Use cheap multimeter from home center and check voltage at chime, or check transformer.
Doorbell transformers are usually located in basement or garage or attic, and most are hardwired into octagon box.
There are no replacement parts for door chimes.
Buy new one, or contact seller for refund if this is new chime.

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

How to change ring tone? Model #RC8233R Carlton wireless door chime


Mary, there is a small button on the face of the face of the pusher. With the unit plugged in, push that little button and it will play the next available ring tone. When you find one that you want to use, simply stop and that one will be what you hear when someone comes to the door.

I have a byron SX85R plug in wireless door bell, i need to change the frequency/ or code, keep false alarming, cant find the instructions , also with the alarm, is a batterie alarm no. SX81R, which came...


From User Guide: Interference from a similar unit operating nearby: a) simply remove the batteries from the push button and door chime units and rest for 10 seconds, this will erase memory b) Insert the batteries into the push button and door chime units, the door chime unit will give 2-beeps to indicate that it is ready for the new registration code. Press the Push Button once, it will generate a new operation code randomly and send a wireless ignal to the door chime unit and it will sound to indicate that new operation code is registered and memorised.
(Note with this unit SX85R the door chime is mains powered, not battery powered, but above instructions are the same)
