Our doorbell (a Nutone LA-128WH) needs replacing. We want to replace
it with a different model. It seems to be mounted with two screws 6.5
inches apart vertically. To make it easier on me, are there other
models (not necessarily Nutone) that mount the same way?
Yes. I'll be surprised if anyone in this newsgroup can tell you which ones
have the same screw arrangement, unless by some stroke of luck equivalent to
winning Powerball, someone just happens to have such a doorbell.
Go to Nutone's web site and download some of their installation guides.

I looked at their website but I haven't gotten into the details of the
mounting arrangement. This model isn't made anymore, but I found some
new ones on eBay, cheap. But my wife doesn't want another one like
You don't need info on YOUR model. You said you wanted a NEW one with the
same screw spacing. Every product I've checked at the Nutone web site has
installation instructions available for download on the SAME PAGE as each
model. Same for their fans.

Sorry, I think there was a misunderstanding. What I was saying is
that I would be happy with a direct replacement, which I can get on
eBay. That would be the easiest for me to replace and also pretty
cheap. My wife doesn't want to do that, though. She wants a different
model, which may not even be a Nutone. When I first posted the
question I didn't know that she definitely did not want the same kind.
That is the most common by far, and NuTone standard for many decades.
But I have seen anywhere from 12 to 24 volts. Odds are you are fine, but
that is one of those simple-to-check things you feel awful stupid about
if it doesn't match.
Don't sweat the mounting. Buy the one that you want and a box of

[Red Head E-Z anchors]
I drive the screw first. if it hits a stud, fine-- if not, I drive an
E-Z anchor. [they break if you hit a stud]
Buy the big box- you'll be glad you have some for next time.
