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!!!!

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.
Stick to your lawn watering schedule until it really starts to pour. After the storm you have only the same number of rest days you always had and then you need to start watering again.
