    Am trying to install a new doorbell. There is power, I just don't know how to wire it. I have three red wires and three white wires. I have them labeled transformer, front and back. I know where the red wires go, but where do I put the white wires? Do I just nut them together? There is nowhere on the bock to screw them in... Help please

    Look in the manual for the door bell. I would expect terminals for front, back and power to be labelled.

    They are labeled, but I have 6 wires, do I connect two wires to each terminal or do I attached one wire to each terminal and nut the other three together? I have three red wires and three white wires.

    You need to know where those wires go.

    Connect the white wire from the "transformer" pair to the common terminal, wirenut the red wires together, connect the white wires the respective "front' and "rear" terminals.
