Nest 2nd Gen - 2 chimes each connected to the transformer

Hans007

The provided wiring diagrams all identify one chime for the chime puck to be installed or if two chimes (the second chime connects to the first in a wiring chain) then you install the puck in the first chime box directly connected to the transformer. There is little to no information for my set up which is two chime boxes, both directly connected to the transformer… I’ve seen another post with the same issue as myself and no matter which chime box you attach the puck to, the other box will act up…

Seems like the obvious solution is to get a second puck and install it in the second chime box… problem is Google doesn’t send out chime pucks… only full doorbells for replacement… so unless anyone has any ideas I see my options as:

1 - disconnect one chime box and install as normal (not going with that option because there is a reason we have two chime boxes)

2 - rewire my entire doorbell system (not an option)

3 - return and go with another doorbell camera company that works

if anyone knows how to get a second puck (again, Google doesn’t sell these apart from buying a second doorbell) or how to get around this problem that would be most appreciated…

Have you tried just connecting the "chime puck" to one of your chimes?

"The chime connector allows the chime's wires to deliver constant power to the Nest Doorbell (wired, 2nd gen) and Nest Doorbell (wired) and protects your chime from damage." (https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/9247132?)

Depending on exactly how your chimes are wired (compared to the other customer, who couldn't get it to work), perhaps connecting the "chime puck" to one of your chimes will provide that continuous power.

Google Nest says: "The chime connector allows the chime’s wires to deliver constant power to the Nest Doorbell (wired) and protects your chime from damage." (https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/9247132)

Depending on exactly how YOUR chimes are wired (as compared to the other customer whom you referenced), perhaps it will provide your doorbell with the constant power it needs.

Hi… I have the same issue as the customer I referenced unfortunately, both chimes are independently wired to the transformer

You could try contacting Support to see if they'll provide you with a second "chime puck", starting with this link:
