    Unhappy Doorbell only chimes when hall light switch is ON

    I thought we had a problem with our doorbell button or the chime, but when i turned the hall light switch to "ON" to see, I had a thought that maybe I should try the button. Eureka, the doorbell chimed, but only when the hall light switch is "ON". What should I do so the doorbell rings regardless of the light switch position?

    The transformer that supplys power to the chime is wired into the switched power line instead of constant power. It would require locating the transformer on that line and have it rewired for a constant power connection.
