Hardwired Ring Doorbell constantly ringing

I have had this doorbell installed for almost a year. The other night it began to constantly ring until I unhooked the wiring to the hallway chime. It is as if the doorbell is completing the circuit internally. All my wiring is good, no shorts. Switched locations with another doorbell and it caused the same issue at that location. Does this Ring doorbell just need to be replaced after only a year?

Although you’ve had this Doorbell installed for some time, I recommend checking the compatibility of the chime kit being used, just to ensure it is intended to work with your Video Doorbell. Try also checking wiring for any corrosion, debris, or any other issues that might cause this.

In your Ring app you can also choose the chime type via the Video Doorbell Device Settings > General Settings. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:
