If your wired door chime does not stop ringing or you can hear a loud buzzing sound when connected then please check the below:


For Electronic door chimes that play an electronic melody:

  • Check that you are not using a lighted bell push. Remove the light from the bell push or change the bell push to a non-lighted version. 
  • Check there is not a short circuit and the wire connections inside the chime unit or inside the bell push are not touching each other.
  • Check the wired bell push is not sticking when pressed, if it is then take it apart and clean using a dry cloth. Sometimes using a light spray oil to lubricate the button can help with this.


For Traditional door chimes that ring a bell or Ding Dong:  

  • Check there is not a short circuit and the wire connections inside the chime unit or inside the bell push are not touching each other.
  • Check the wired bell push is not sticking when pressed, if it is then take it apart and clean using a dry cloth. Sometimes using a light spray oil to lubricate the button can help with this.
