SOURCE: Doorbell frequencies.

in the transmitter and receiver, You will see a small box or circle with a flathead screw inside. Turn this one 1 whole turn clockwise or counter clockwise. Fine tune the transmitter or receiver so it will have max range. (higher frequency travels further, which is good info if you want to increase range.

My utilitech wireless doorbell rings by itself how do I stop this

It is most likely caused by localised interference/signals from another device close by.
If the unit has an option to change the frequency, use it.
if not unlees you find the source of the interference a hardwired doorbell is the best option.

Phantom bell rings on Siemens wirreless door bell chime jsjs-204, I do not have instructions

You may need to change the frequency of the chime. In this model, you need to remove the batteries from the receiver unit and wait for a while. Then replace the batteries. The doorbell unit should automatically set itself to a different frequency once you press the button, which will(hopefully) solve the problem.

It seems impossible to find the instruction manual for the doorbell. But see who had a similar problem with a different Siemens model, which works on the same principles. (I can't seem to be able to remove the battery from the door bell unit on the jsjs204, but it reset itself after changing the batteries in the receiver).

Everytime somebody rings my neighbors doorbell, our doorbell goes off as well. can i change something to make that not happeb anymore?

It appears that you and your neighbor's wireless door bell are on the same radio frequency. You or your neighbor will need to change their base station (were the sound come out of) unit. If you or your neighbor still have their Owner's Manual you can find out how to do it in the Trouble Shooting Section. If that's not available, remove the cover, if necessary and you will find a small panel board with a series of movable slid switches (they are very small) . Moving those to a different position will change the frequency. The inside of the back cover should have instructions on how to reprogram it. DESA International bankrupted over a year ago, but some manuals in a pdf format are still available on line. Try as there may be an Owners Manual that's still available. Different divisions of DESA International were sold off to other companies during the bankruptcy, so you may be led to another site. Good luck.

The doorbell buttons and your receiver must be on the same channel. If you will get out the directions that came with your unit, they will describe the process to go through to reset the specific "codes" for your buttons and receiver.

when did this work last?
is the new unit on the first floor designed to work with the 2nd floor unit?transmission,

you may have to tune the 2 units to the same transmission frequency before they will work to gether,some wireless units only have a short range of transmiting distance too
have you checked the power supply to the receiver upstairs and the bell push battery on 1st floor?

they seem to be the most common solutions for this type of device
if its the age of the unit then its time to replace it

Doorbell frequencies.

Check the reciever (ringer) as well, it will have to be set to match what you do to the transmitter (the doorbell button)
