Nest Doorbell 2nd Gen Indoor Chime Not Working

Community Member

I'm unable to get the indoor chime to activate. The camera is functioning properly. I have a solid blue light. Things I've tried:

- I had an older mechanic style doorbell with a plunger. When I installed the Nest Doorbell and pressed the doorbell, the plunger would move but not strike the chime plate.

- indoor chime button is on. Quiet is off

- I've tried toggling between electronic chime Y/N setting. Didn't help.

- I replaced the doorbell transformer using Googles recommended voltage and VA. Didn't help.

- I replaced the doorbell. Didn't help.

- I then replaced the transformer with the suggested 16v, 30VA in the form posts. Didnt  resolve the issue.

- I tried having Googles chime puck hooked up and not, didn't help.

- I'm completely out of ideas after 4 hours of trouble shooting. 

In case people are wondering, the old doorbell (12 years old) was working fine before install. 






It seems you've performed all of the possible steps to resolve the problem. Is your "chime puck" wired as shown in the diagram on this Help topic?

Several customers in this forum have reported defective "chime pucks". It seems that at least some had to get the whole doorbell package replaced in order to get a new "chime puck". You could try contacting Support to see what they say:

Thanks for following up.  To the best of my knowledge, I have the puck installed correctly.  I have reached out to Google Support requesting assistance.

Fix - Installing a 30VA doorbell transformer. Oddly, this seemed to work the next day. I now have an indoor doorbell chime.
