    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weak Sound and Push button is hard to Operate We moved into our new home in 2013 Jan that had BK115LWH-1 16 VAC Nutone Builder Chimes Kit installed by the builder with a Lighted Pushbutton by the front door. It's a duplex home so there were two kits installed - one per floor. But since late 2016 the the push button has become very hard to operate and the bells started ringing just once DING_DONG (both upstairs and down stairs). The push button has to be pressed more than once in every direction for the bell to operate and the sound/volume has weakened over the years. The issue was not very evident until recently after we started getting numerous complaints from the visitors that there is no response to the doorbell.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Twice failed I moved into a brand new house in November of 2016 and only months after living there noticed the doorbell wasn't working. To their credit, Nutone sent me a replacement with very little hassle. I easily installed the new one - same model - only to have it fail in the exact same way a few months later. I'm not terribly familiar with doorbells but I am good at figuring things out and problem solving. In both cases I've taken off the cover to reveal that the spring is gone from one of the rods and the plastic pin at the bottom is resting on and melted to the chime. This one is beyond me. I can't figure out how or why this would happen... much less happen twice.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't hear chimes on doorbell BK115LWH!! Just moved into a new duplex that was just finished in Sept. 2017. Complex was designed for low income 62 & over elderly. Apparently builder got a special on these door bells but no one can hear them and we can not turn them up louder. Worst doorbell ever made.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken chime After one year in our house (built in 2010), we noticed the doorbell is not working I opened it and saw that it was broken. I have attached three photos showing you that the right side rod that strikes the chime is broken. When we push the outside button, nothing happens. I would like to simply repair if it able to do that, but it would require replacement parts

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Quiet This doorbell is way too quiet. Just like the other reviews on here, I miss packages and people at my door all the time. Unless you are in the same room as the doorbell, you will never hear it. I would not recommend.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs volume increased. I bought my home in 2014, at least once a month, I'm told, I stopped by, nobody was home. That's not including my packages, are delayed till tomorrow because they used the doorbell instead of knocking today. 4 people at home and I have to wait another day for 2nd delivery attempt over a QUIET DOORBELL !!! I'm going to place a sign on the door to knock and i'm adding a wireless doorbell. I have never in my life hated a doorbell more. Add more fuel to the fire... every commercial on tv seems to have a doorbell ringing louder than mine that gets my attention. Missing this delivery, had me climbing on a chair plucking off the cover and at this site. No More Missing Visitors or Packages over a QUIET DOORBELL !!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after 2 years Bought a new build home, and this doorbell stopped lighting up in less than two years. I have never had to replace any doorbell/light in an older home (30 year old home). This is definitely a cheap, builder-grade product, as some of the other reviewers have stated as well. I did not anticipate having to replace something like this!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doorbell no working I moved into a new house just short of four years. I called homebuilder to send someone to repair doorbell since still under builder warranty after about 16 months. Bell repaired; however I was not made aware know of problem. Bell is not working again. Tried new Doorbell button. Still not working. Checked voltage. Nothing. Don't know where transformer located since many issues written about bad transformers.

    how can i muffle the door chime???

    the volume on this door chime was factory set. there is no volume key. HOW CAN I MUFFLE THE DOOR CHIME???? too loud...
    Asked by: sandra
    Thank you for your question. There is not volume control on any of our 2-Note Mechanical Chimes. You may want to check to make sure you are using a 16V 10VAC transformer. Too much voltage could cause your chime to operate inappropriately.

    Asked by: hatch
    Thank you for your inquiry. All NuTone door chimes are designed to operate on a 16 VAC transformer. They will not function on a 6 to 8 volt power supply.

    Am I able to change the chime on model BK115LWH-1?

    I would like to have a distinct chime, and not simply the standard "out-of-the-box" chime.
    Asked by: Mike
    Thank you for your question on the model BK115LWH door chime. The BK115 is only available with the two note (ding dong) type of chime. If you need something different, you would need to completely remove the BK115 and install another model chime.
