Tips - Wired Doorbell Button Replacement

Tools Needed:

  1. Screwdriver
  2. Wire stripper
  3. Pliers
  4. Your new doorbell button.

First: find the electrical breaker that powers the doorbell system and switch it off.

Next, remove the screws from the old doorbell cover and gently pull it away from the wall.

Remove the two wires coming out from the wall from the two screws on the back of the old button. Check to see if the exposed parts of the wires are clean and not brittle. If not, simply reattach the wires to the two screws on your new doorbell button. If the wires look dirty, rusted or brittle, cut the exposed part off and strip approximately ½ inch of each wire and then attach to the screws. It doesn’t matter which wire goes on which screw.

Lastly, screw the new doorbell cover to the wall.
