Those bells have a very simple mechanism that would not lend itself to ringing on it's own.
The best piece of advice I can give you is not to assume anything in this situation. I would take pains to verify that the sound you are hearing is being caused by that bell and not something else.
I would get a webcam on that bell, if you can. Failing that, try moving it or disabling it for a period of time and see if you still hear the ringing. The webcam would be better, especially if you record audio at the same time. That will most liekly show for sure what is happening.
Can you describe your home conditions more completely? Do you live alone? Do you have any pets, such as a curious cat that might be pawing the button and then running when they hear you beating feet towards them? Are you out in the country or in a city apartment?
I hope this helps, Canis

It should not be a creepy thing because it's just their way of saying "hello". More than likely it's your guide.

I was living at home at the time helping to care for her. I was about 22 at the time. Right after she was buried we had a terrible blizzard. We were literally snowed in. My father and I were just moping around the house. Both of us were reading. I heard the bell start ringing. I automatically jumped up to go see what Mom needed. Then it hit me, she had died.
My Dad looked at me and I looked at him. We said nothing. For about a week we continued to hear the bell. We would actually go upstairs and look. Of course there was nothing....outside of my mom's spirit
She would slap us on the shoulder, make the kitchen light swing back and forth and move things around for a few months. Then she decided to leave. She was only 60 when she died, and my father was beside himself. They had been married for 37 years.
So perhaps you have a spirit that could be attached to the bell or just a friendly spirit that likes to go by and tap it.
Sounds logical to me!

We got rid of the bell because it rang constantly and drove us crazy. I recently put a new bell out, and it has been quiet.

Thanks for all the replies. Yes it is the kind of bell that you just tap the button on top. We live in the country, our home was built in 1828 the old part anyway. we have dogs but no cats in the house. Both dogs were in the living room when I hear it. my husband doesn't seem to hear it.
