Can you wire two of these off a 16volt transformer?
Have a two story home, with two NuTone chimes that are now running off a 26 volt transformer. Works fine except try to find replacement bulbs for the outside button that are compatible with a 26 volt system.
Thank you for your question on the model LA11BG wired door chime. You can run two of the LA11BG chimes together on one transformer as long as it is a 16 volt AC transformer rated at 30 voltamps (watts).

Hello...what would the outcome be if I used an existing 12v transformer with this chime?
Thank you for your question on the model LA11BG wired door chime. The LA11BG requires the use of a 16 volt transformer rated for at least 10 VA (watts). If you use a 12 volt transformer, your chime will either not work at all or have a very low tone.

Can the plastic cover be painted?
I have this exact door chime. Can I paint the plastic cover to match my walls? If so, is there a recommended method? Can I use standard matte wall paint?
Thank you for your question on the model LA11BG wired door chime. You should be able to paint the cover as long as you prime it properly. We would suggest that you take the cover to a larger paint store and get their recommendation on primer and paint.

is this chime mechanical
is this chime mechanical ?
Thank you for your question on the model LA11BG wired door chime. The LA11BG is a mechanical chime. It operates on 16 volts AC and a hammer will strike tone bars.
