Musical doorbell

Hi - Our doorbells are capable of playing about 20 different songs. I have tried to find out how to change it from the ding dong to a song with no luck. Has anyone found out how to do it? TIA.


Tom

Mine is located behind the control panel above the passenger's seat. It has two big knobs on it.....I figured you could make some changes, but never tried.

Hi Don - Thanks but those seem to only adjust the volume, unless I missed something. I can get it to play songs but not via the doorbell button.

Musical doorbell

Songs are new to me, did you read that somewhere? That is where mine is on my 4369 behind the panel above the driver

Yes, I have some documentation that speaks to the various tunes it plays. As well, I have played all the songs directly at the box but can't get the button on the exterior wall to do anything except for the ding dong. I looked for dip switches but didn't find any. I'm hoping that someone has worked this out so I can benefit from their experience.

Could you please take some pictures of the documentation

Never seen this controller in ovhd. cabinet in our 17 LA. We are late sleepers on some days. Never fails we are awakened by our friends, but a nice cup of coffee and talk and all is forgotten. In our S&B home we have 7 entry doors and they all have a different ring.

Hi - I wanted to revive this post as I had a chance to figure out how to run the songs on the doorbell. If you look at the unit above the drivers chair behind the panel you will see a red wire that is next to an unused screw tap. Move the red wire over to the unused one and pick your song by turning the A to E and 1 to 5 dials. (The other dial is for volume). I've attached a list of the songs and corresponding settings. Enjoy.

Wow.....glad you figured that out. It could be fun if the thing was somewhere that you could easily access it. Our grandkids get a blast out of ringing it. I saved your list in case it's in a more readily accessible spot in the new coach.

Hi Don - It actually wouldn't be hard to move it to the open section of the cabinet where the compass is (open area above the panel).
