how do you make the door bell chime stop sticking and humming?

I have replaced the outside button twice and cleaned the chimes like other websites have suggested. The chime still sticks and get stucks making a humming sound until I open the box and push down the chime. Is there a way to repair this?

Hi firrefly,

 

I sounds like the problem is in the door bell itself and not the button.

 

You said you have to remove the cover and manually reset the chime, this sounds like the chime is defective and once actuated it stays in that mode.

 

Check the wiring, it may be crossed or shorted causing the chime to be activated all the time. If the wiring is OK,

 

replace the chime and you door bell problems will be solved.

 

Mike,
