The problem is that the chime and DB1 are powered in series. When power is reapplied, current rushes through the chime to the DB1 as part of powering it up, and that can be enough current to cause the chime to strike. Likewise, if you watch the chime throughout the startup, you may even see the the chime piston moving in and out as the DB1 is speaking about connecting to wifi. This is because the current flowing through the chime to the DB1 varies as the DB1 is speaking.Has anyone else noticed problems with the DB1 ringing the bell during a power outage? ... Trying to figure out a way to solve it.
EDIT: I deleted the part about stretching the spring on the chime solenoid piston. That was a fix for a different issue.
