Curious if you'd have any thoughts. Set up the doorbell and everything was working fine. Noticed some noise from the chime itself, looks like one of the metal rods is slightly being pulled out every few seconds. Also the doorbell itself only worked for about an hour before getting a device tampered with notification. Wondering if it could be a power issue. Saw one video suggesting adding a resistor to the chime?
How do you reverse the process? I had everything set up and working. Then went in and changed it to none and now it won't let me open that setting up again to go back to mechanical.
Need a little help. I have everything wired correctly and the door bell with alro.
When I first pushed the button my original chime for the home sounded. But when set up was completed the bell stopped working. However the lights on the other buttons are on but no chime.
Could I simply remove the chime completely and connect the trans and front wires with a nut, shove it all back inside the wall, spackle and paint so its like the chime was never there?
thanks that help me to make mine work. power mode was in the X and set up on my phone to say mechanical and it got it to ding dong correctly.. to get my doorbell to pair to my base station i had to set the power mode to x and then it found it.
