DeAnn, it depends on what else was

In reply to LJ in TX-doorbell and outlets by DeAnn on March 26th, 2003 10:41 AM [Go to top of thread]

wired to that breaker and circuit. to tell if you have a separate problem with the doorbell, locate the doorbell transformer in the attic and with a volt meter verify that the transformer input side has 110volts AC be careful and dont shock yourshelf and dont step your foot thru the ceiling drywall. if you have 110volts AC on the input side of the transformer then test the output or secondary side of the transformer and verify that it has 16 to 24 volts AC . if the input voltage on the transformer is zero then you have lost power from the circuit breaker or other source for your transformer, trace down the wher that power line runs to and correct the open cir circuit. IF the out voltage is zero you have faulty transformer, replace it. IF the voltages on both sides of the transformer check good,. then check the voltage at the input to your door bell. if good..then you have a bad door bell, change it out. NOW for the outside outlets that do not work...try and locate a tripped GFCI outlet in your kitchen, bathrooms, utility room or garage that may be the cause and reset the GFCI outlet. Good luck LJ
