wiring 2 chimes to one doorbell
Hi, we have a sprawling older house with 2 chimes attached to the front door buzzer, which hasn't worked for a while. At the site of bell #1 I have a red and green wire from the buzzer, then a red wire runs from bell #1 site to a transformer, then red wire from transformer to TRANS on bell #2. A green wire runs from bell #1 site to FRONT on bell #2. If I simply close the wires at the bell #1 site (green-green, red-red), it closes the circuit and bell #2 works fine. But any way I attach the 2 sets of wires to bell #1, it either doesn't sound, or constantly chimes without pressing the front door buzzer.
How can I connect up the two sets of wires running at bell #1 site to make both work? Pls see attached diagram.
PS, I found a thread on this from 2009 (http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/wiring/msg0616221028659.html), but I'm not sure if the transformer being between bell #1 and 2 changes it. Thank you for any help. JM
