Hi All,

Wondering if anyone knows how to remove the cover for this doorbell chime (pls see pic)? I need to uncover it to check inside, as it's not working & generating a constant buzzing sound. Previous owner painted it over & I don't see any screws. I'm guessing just use a knife/flat head screw driver to try to pry it open at the seam where that middle opening is located? But, figure I'll ask for additional info, as I'm not the most handy typeAny & all advice would be highly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

If it was painted over very heavy, you will probably need to cut around the edge of the cover with a box cutter or Xacto knife to break the paint sealing together the cover and base.

Usually these type just slide or pop off with a good tug.

It would appear that shoe mold has been installed around the cover. Then painted- which would make removing the cover near impossible. If the shoe mold is removed, the cover will probably come off the mounting plate rather easily.

If it's making a continuous buzz sound even when a button is not being pressed look for a stuck button, the problem is not in the chime box

It may be the transformer, which with older doorbells is often mounted elsewhere. Possibly in your basement or in a closet.

Thanks kevink1955! I loosened the screws on the button a bit & now the buzzing sound is gone (doorbell is working again). Oh man...wish I'd posted on this forum sooner! I'd already pry apart (destroyed) a good chunk of the chime cover Gonna need to get some paint from Home Depot.

Anyway, thanks to you & everyone who posted. I learned some good stuffs for future references

Repairing your doorbell circuit require you to check the wires usually, and the first thing would be taking off the doorbell chime cover. Or, if you buy a new wired smart doorbell, for example, the Ring Doorbell Pro, you may need to remove your existing doorbell chime cover to install the power kit.

If you have a Nutone doorbell cover but don’t know how to remove the cover case, here are some tips that I wanna share with you guys.

How to Remove Nutone Doorbell Cover

First things first, always turn off the power by shutting off the circuit breaker for safety.

Most Nutone doorbell cover is not fixed by screws. So, if the doorbell chime is not painted, you can hold the doorbell chime case with your hands and pull it from the bottom out, and the upper part will simply pop out, you can easily take the chime cover right off in a few seconds.

However, in some of the cases, the case won’t come off easily as they’ve been sticking on the wall for too long and some covers have snaps.

You probably need a flathead thin screwdriver to score the edges of the chime and go around the base. Then insert a screwdriver between the chime cover and the wall to lift the tabs off or loosen the snaps of the cover. Pry it off gently and the cover should pop off from the wall, and remove it with your hands. (Don’t wedge it too hard, otherwise you may break the cover or damage the wall)

What if the doorbell cover is holding by paint?

If the doorbell chime cover is painted on, it is going to be hard to take it off with only a small driver. The first thing we need to do is get through the paint.

And different paint materials will determine how challenging the process is going to be. If the chime is covered by thick hard wall paint, then a larger flathead screwdriver and a hammer for scoring the edges will be the best option. But it will cause damage to the wall more or less, and you need to repair the tiny wall holes later.

If the wall paint is not that difficult to get through, a sharp razor blade will do the trick.

TURN OFF THE ELECTRICITY

Turn off power at the circuit breaker panel box. Use a screwdriver to remove the mounting screws that secure the doorbell cover. If they are not visible, you may have to unsnap the cover to reach them. Carefully pull the button housing away from the wall.

Just so, do you have to turn off the power to replace a doorbell?

To test whether the button is the problem, disconnect one of the wires. You don't have to turn the power off for this because, unlike most systems in your home, the power is stepped down by the doorbell to a safe 16 or even 12 volts (V) with very few amps.

Furthermore, how can I find my doorbell transformer? Doorbell transformers are usually located outside the home along the siding or on a wall in the garage. They may also be fixed to a wall in the basement or closet near the front door or entryway. If you don't see it in any of these places, check the walls in the attic. It may be tucked behind the insulation.

People also ask, does the doorbell have a breaker?

Turn off the breaker that supplies the power to the doorbell. In most cases, the breaker will supply other receptacles or switches for lights or other appliances. Remove the doorbell chime cover and unscrew the wires that supply the unit with power. Wrap the ends with electrical tape and replace the cover.

What do you do with old doorbell wires?

Unscrew the terminal screws and disconnect the wires from the doorbell. If you're replacing the doorbell, tape the wires to the outside of the wall so that they don't fall into it. If you're removing the doorbell, wrap electrical tape around the bare ends of the wires and tuck them into the wall.
