Postby Zippy 500 » Fri May 01, 2020 7:51 pm


Can anyone advise if this doorbell is hard wired please. I am replacing it with a wireless one just want to remove the button on the front of the house (screws are rusted) There is a space for batteries i think it is a chime bell Friedland 6 could it have batteries and still be hardwired ? or can i just remove it and just tape the ends

Any help really appreciated thanks

Simply Build It

Hi zippy 500,
This type of doorbell must be hard wired whether it has batteries or a transformer. Remove the bell push and touch the wires together - if the bell rings you need to locate and disable the transformer, if not cut off the wires and fit your wireless one.
