electric door buzzer/latch

My buzzer doesn't work. Since I'm returning the house pretty close to original I'd like to get the door buzzer working again. I have power to the door, but the electric latch is busted. Has anyone found a replacement or attempted a repair?

Replacing the unit is surprisingly easy and inexpensive. I have installed two of them, but the last one was 13 years ago - I don't remember where I got it. It is a 'solenoid'. Call a local lock shop and ask them what the unit is really called.

OK I hope you have found your lock; if not I just bought one from Foster Bros. security in Sunnyvale on Murphy St. T

Bye Bye t.
