I bought a battery operated chordless door bell and threw away the instructions. Now I have the problem of the doorbell going off at random times and no one is at the door. It is a GE 1601S. I have tried experimenting with four small switches on the back but still get the false alarms. Do any of you have ideas ? Thank you

I don't have one, but I heard someone reading the instructions once. I think you are able to adjust it to different frequencies. Your neighbors might have one set to the same frequency. Try changing yours.

And make sure the battery connections are tight and the batteries fresh.
