Remove the cover of the chime box and disconnect the electrical wires. You can then go to the front door and remove the doorbell button as well. Leave the wires exposed but only remove the button housing. This is where you need to pay closer attention to how the outdoor button and. chime are related to each other. With your AM radio tuned between stations, turn the MAIN circuit breaker back on. After the interference returns, turn the circuit breakers off one at a time until the noise stops. Now turn on all the breakers except the one that stopped the noise.
An electrically wired doorbell requires a transformer to step down the 120-volt house circuit to the correct voltage and wattage required by your doorbell. A doorbell transformer is a small brass or silver colored box about 2 to 3 inches square with two to three terminal screws on the face.
Using a screwdriver, unscrew the two screws holding the doorbell push button to the wall. If the screws holding the button in place aren't exposed, you'll have to remove the plate covering them first. It can often be pried off with a utility knife or flathead screwdriver. Step 2: Pull the doorbell push button gently from the wall. Subscribe to our channel and like our video!
