A Sadotech doorbell allows you to know whoever is at your door no matter where you are. However, just like any device, these doorbells can malfunction. In recent times, many people have been complaining about the bell ringing on its own.
While this issue can be irritating, the good news is that you can fix it. Here is a step by step guide for fixing a Sadotech doorbell that is ringing on its own.
1: Open up the cover of the doorbell
The first step is to remove the cover on both the chime and the wireless doorbell button device. It is advisable to be gentle to avoid destroying the cover. Use a small screwdriver to avoid prying off the cover. Remember that Sadotech doorbells come in different sizes so a screwdriver that works for one might not work for the other. Check your Sadotech doorbell instructions for information on the right type of screwdriver.
2: Replace the batteries
If your doorbell was operating normally before, the ringing problem could be an issue with your batteries. Removing the old batteries from the device can solve the problem. If the batteries keep drying, then consider switching to a different brand.
3: Check frequency indicator
Confirm the stability of the frequency indicator on both the button and the chime. The frequency should be the same at both levels. The frequency depends on jumpers which are close to the battery. If you notice a change frequency between the two devices, move the jumpers on each side so that they appear identical.
Needle nose pliers are efficient when changing the jumper’s settings. Place the covers back on both the doorbell and chime and test whether your Sadotech doorbell is working. If it does not resume to its normal mode of operation, proceed to the next step.
4: Change the position of the wireless doorbell
Change the wireless doorbell chime from the wall and set it in a position that is close to the doorbell button. If the doorbell operates in a normal way then the case might be metal studs. Metal studs are well known for their effects on transmission of signals. Installing wood shims between the chimes and the metal studs can rectify the issue.

5: Install the doorbell chime high on the wall.
Ensure that the doorbell is in a strategic position high on the wall. If the doorbell is close to the floor the transmission signals will weaken. This prevents the doorbell from working in a proper manner. Fix the chime at different places on the wall to determine the best. Good height and position should ensure quality signal transmission every time you press the doorbell.
The methods above can help you to fix a Sadotech doorbell not working. However, if none of these issues have solved your problem, consider contacting Sadotech technicians who will fix the issue or provide a replacement unit.
