Do any of you know if there is a way to repair or install a new light in a
door bell button without having to replace with a new button? It appears
that the light only lasts for a couple years then burns out.
Thanks for your help.
Anything can be done...Depending on how anal you are about getting it done.
I've seen some of the little round white "snap in" illuminated doorbell
pushbttons that allow you to pull out the button and remove and replace a
"grain of wheat" incandescent bulb which has it's leads plugged into a couple
of tiny socket contacts in the switch assembly. Finding a place to buy the
right size/voltage bulb might be a challenge these days though.
They've been making LED illuminated door bell buttons for at least 20 years
now. I'd suggest you do whatever it takes to replace the push button part of
yours with an LED one. I've got a pair of red LED pushbuttons which came with
my Sears garage door openers 19 years ago and they're still going strong. By
now I'm sure they have "white" ones available too.
Just ask or Google around...
