Why is my Byron doorbell not working?

When we’re troubleshooting a doorbell we need to check its components and we’re going to start with the easiest one. 

  1. We’re going to check to see if the button itself is broken.
  2. Next, we’re going to check the transformer.
  3. Atlast, we are going to fix the chime.

You can simply check the transformer is working by taking 120 volts power supply. 

That’s it the transformer basically sends power to the ring button. Whenever you close press the button it sends it back and closes the circuit. which moves the pin back and creates the ding dong sound.

Replacing the Button

In case you found, your ring bell button is not working? Then you can change it with a new button. Just open the doorbell from the side and replace the button.

 First of all, it is best if you have a separate replacement doorbell. So, in case you are not able to fix your Byron ring doorbell then still you have another one to use. we’re going to remove the plate first and then check the button. There are just two screws here but sometimes if you have a fresh paint job the plate will have paint that will seal it. check to see if the button is actually damaged. 

Use a small blade to cut around here so you can remove the plate. When you’re done and take a look at the button.You will require some tools to start this project. Just in case you guys need them, here is the link. Check daily need home tools.

It is best if you have the same size button and of the same company.

Replacing the Transformer

Replacing the transformer totally depends on you because by changing it your doorbell will become new. The cost of changing the transformer is the same or close to the cost of a ring bell.

You can easily find the transformer in the market or you can also order it from the Amazon website.

Replacing the Chime

You can check the chime only if your transformer is working and has 120 volts of power supply. 

Now we’re going to check if the chime is actually broken so what you’re going to do is to connect one of the connections to the transformer and the other connection that’s going to the chime to connect it to the other side.

Next, we have to connect the doorbell and check by pressing the button. If you ring the doorbell and the chime doesn’t chime, it means that the chime is bad which means you need to replace the chime.
