The doorbell on my house now makes a buzzing sound rather than the normal ding-dong/chime sound.  Also, the push-button began sticking in the on position, so it just buzzes continuously until you pry it out.  I'm fairly handy, but I have no experience with doorbells.  Should I do it myself or hire someome?

I'm not sure how I would know my doorbell stopped working.  Do the Jehovah's Witnesses text you or something?

Try Senior Ding-Dong. He'll fix you right up!






Why do birds suddenly appear? Over there? Over here?




Stinking Chevys.

The button needs to be replaced, and the transformer needs replaced.
If you know what the transformer looks like, you can probably handle the screw driver and wiring.

My doorbell chime housing started to melt and smoke, and almost caught fire from the button being stuck on. Fix it. soon.

Some people want the strangest things in life. I figure if they get past the gate and the dogs, I shouldn't need a bell.

Even though we live in town, we only get one or two knocks on our door per month.

Probably.  Take apart the original door bell button and hold the 2 wires.  Then press those 2 wires together and see if the bell rings as normal.  If so, probably just need a new button and a no soliciting sign.

Thanks.

I think my personal best was "So this Asian lady was giving me a brow job...".  The thread was about whether I should give an extra tip to the lady at Supercuts for trimming my eyebrows, even though they didn't really need it.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a wireless doorbell vs a wired one?
Link Posted: 6/29/2015 6:23:45 PM EDT
I fixed mine (button dry rotted and would get stuck when pressed) and went with an all metal button so that this wouldn't happen again.  Cost about $25 for a nice button.

We just moved into a house with a door bell that doesn't work. As soon as I figure out how to get the old crusty box off the wall, I'll be replacing the unit. Almost everything else in the house was updated, but they left to oldest POS door bell. Don't get it at all.

Japan is full of weirdos and has retarded gun laws.  At least Jimmy Johnson is from California.  Oh, wait...
