Question about 2 family doorbell button


Okay so here's the thing, I have one of them 2 family doorbell buttons and the first floor button is worn out. I mean you push the button the bell might ring or might not. Sometimes when the front door closes the doorbell rings, ugh. So I was thinking about replacing it, any thoughts?

Should I just replace it with the same kind, or can I do something different?? When I removed the button plate outside of the house there is a hole where all the wires are. And I really can't find a replacement at any homedepot or lowes by me. It's like nobody makes them anymore.

Well I included a picture of what it kinda looks like but mine is black.

Thank you in advance!!!!

Question about 2 family doorbell button


Depends on what you can find that can be installed with a minimum of repainting and refinishing around it.

Two single doorbell buttons will probably cost a lot less than one double.

You might be able to dissect and repair the old button unit.
