So when we moved into our house our doorbell was one weak ding. When I mean one it was one ding no ding dong. So we missed the door until the dog starts barking lol. With good intentions of fixing it from the beginning we tried but never seemed to get to it. If I would of know how easy it was we would have done it so much soon
Replacing Our Door Bell
Turn Off Power
Please start by turning off the power to the doorbell we ended up flipping the breakers to find the right one. Testing the door bell for a ring before we proceeded.
Remove Door Bell From Wall
Take the cover off the bell from the wall. Take the wires that are connected to the bell off. Remove the screws and pull the bell off the wall. Now you will have the exposed wires hanging there.
Connect The Wires To The New Bell
There is a hole in the back of the bell we bought we had to put the wires through the hole turn the wires and pull through the front. This took me a min to get the wires to move to the side once put in the hole. Once the wires are through and to the front you can screw them down in the proper spots. By the way, we found our old one was hooked up wrong. We figure it was because it was broken and so they only had the ding not the dong going lol. The pictures below show the right way 🙂
Now you can screw the door bell onto the wall
Connecting The Door Bell Button
This part was the most simple you unscrew the doorbell button from the house. Unscrew the wires from the back of it. Next, take the new one screw the wires to the back of it. Now you can screw it back on the house.
Turn Power Back On
Now that everything is all screwed in and connected you can turn the power back on. Test your door bell to make sure it’s working. If it doesn’t you will want to troubleshoot check wires, connections etc. You may even have to find the transformer and change it out.Finding the transformer may not be an easy feat we were lucky and didn’t need it. If you can’t find it call a professional to change it out. Ours was a simple fix but some may not be.
