I am an electrical contractor, and I really hate this product line.
I bought a replacement door bell for a customer, but it was not compatible with the existing transformer. So, I went to Home Depot to buy the required transformer, a 16 volt - 15 watt unit. Quess what, they dont sell it, Home Depot (Rancho Cordova & Roseville CA) only stock the 16 volt - 10 watt transformer.
Next I bought the 'contractor pack'. A complete system with a 16 volt - 15 watt transformer, a button, and the door bell. The instructions say that a diode is included, but the diode was not included.
I'm tired of driving back and fourth - time is money, and the cost of gas is crazy.
Tomorrow moring I am going to return this, and buy from a different supplier.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bluejay Do not buy if replacing electro-magnetic doorbell!
I learned the hard way. Apparently this is not compatible, if replacing an electro-magnetic doorbell. Don't recall seeing on the box this was mentioned. Subtract two stars.
Diode is installed on doorbell, which just makes it more complicated. Subtract one more star.
Ended up buying another kit that has an electro-magnetic chime and was super easy to install compared to this one.

You have to press and hold the button for the unit to ring.
Also the unit continuously clicks. The upgraded styling unit (the satin nickel Westminster chime, Model DW-2840) makes the same annoying background clicking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldGuy Sounds good
I got one, and it had a problem. I got another one and it works great. The instructions were NOT identical. The second one was more understandable. Make sure the diode is oriented correctly!!! Look carefully when wiring it to the power and unit.

If the DIODE were built into the unit vs. the button, I believe installation would be simpler for the novice handyman. Overall, works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoRo Great doorbell kit and works really great
The installation was easy and straight forward as long as you follow the direction. If something does not work or/and sound right. All I had to do was check my installation and the troubleshooting guide and it's as easy as 1-2-3 and everything just works like a charm...

I could not get the doorbell chime to work properly. I tried switching the diode around as instructed in the directions, but it still would not work. I don't understand if you need to used the diode, why it isn't pre-installed. Anyway, I returned for a refund.
