ALERT SYMBOL

The ‘Main door’ and ‘Back door’ icons are usually used for bell pushes. The other icon is intended for use with other compatible devices, such as PIR movement detectors and Telephone ring detector. Icons numbered 1 to 3 are also included. The Icons are self-adhesive, supplied in strips of 3. They can be changed, if required, by opening the sliding window of the chime and gently peeling off the strips. If desired, the strips can be cut into individual icons and attached to the chime ina different order.

Troubleshooting

A ‘beep’ sound is heard in learn mode…

  • The push you are programming has already been learned by the chime.
  • If you want to change the Icon associated with the push, use the un-learn
    procedure, then program the push again.

Two ‘beep’ sounds are heard after the normal chime sound… 

  • This indicates a low battery in the bell push that activated the chime. Fit a new battery, type CR2032.

When the bell push is operated, the amber confidence light does not turn on, or is only on for a short time…

  • In normal operation, the amber light will turn on for 1 second. When the battery is weak, the light will only turn on for a short time. Fit a new battery, type CR2032.

The chime does not work…

  • Check that the batteries are the correct type, LR6 ‘AA’ cells. Only use alkaline batteries.
  • Check that the batteries are fitted correctly, with correct polarity.
  • The chime could be out of range of the bell push. Try the chime in a different location.
  • The chime might not have learned the identity of the bell push. Follow the programming procedure.

The chime does not sound…

  • Check that the volume control is not at the minimum setting.

Range is reduced…

  • Metal structures, including uPVC door frames can reduce the range of the product. Avoid mounting the push or chime on or near metal structures.
  • Other equipment can cause radio interference that affects your chime.
  • Walls and ceilings will reduce the range.
  • Weak batteries will reduce range. Replace every 12–18 months. In cold conditions (below 41ºF [5ºC]), batteries may need to be replaced more often.

Amber light flashes…

  • When the chime battery is low, an amber light will flash every 5 seconds. Fit new batteries in the chime, type LR6 ‘AA’ cells. Only use alkaline batteries.
