    Quoted from presqueisle:

    adjusting the distance travel didn't work

    Where would you adjust the travel distance on a chime unit?

    Could try swapping one chime plunger with another (e.g. the 10s for the 100s) and see if the problem follows the plunger or stays with the chime.

    Is the plunger getting stuck on the foam underneath, and inhibiting its pull through the solenoid?

    Quoted from presqueisle:

    I was adjusting the solenoid position for more/less travel.

    Interesting. There's no adjustment on those that I've seen. The sleeve pokes up through the top of the chime unit bracket, and then the 'L' bracket holds it in underneath.

    But even so, the plunger will travel the same distance regardless of the position of the solenoid; it's limited by the hitting either the top (chime) or bottom (foam). The strength of the pull could have an effect though.
