How to Repair Wired Door Bell that Doesn't Work Anymore

Fig.1 Door bell

Supplies and Tools:
AAA alkaline batteries - good quality
Battery door chime with button 

Vera Bright is a long time customer, who lives in Corona, California. She uses my handyman services to solve interesting home repair problems. She like most of my customers are on a budget and always looking for a new and fast way to solve her home repairs. Vera needed a door bell repaired but she did not want an electrician to spend hours figuring out what was wrong with the electrical wires on her door bell. She knew it was the bell transformer and did not want to pay for a new one. 

This post shows the two steps to install an electric bell on the front door.

Checking her problem I realized she needed a new transformer and her wiring needed to be replaced. Knowing that battery operated door bell was in her budget and required very little installation effort I suggested she needed this unit installed on her front door.

Step 1 Above fig.1 shows the lit LED door bell button that needed AAA alkaline batteries.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the transformer which was plugged into her living room outlet. The job took me about five minutes and cost Neva less than twenty dollars for the door bell assembly.  Problem solves and once again the Vera is happy with my work.
