Question Buzzing Doorbell Problem

My doorbell just began buzzing about two days ago. The sound is coming from the doorbell box on the wall. There is a wire that comes from inside the wall that is attached to the screw marked "transformer" on the doorbell...when I unattach that wire the buzzing stops. I don't actually know where the transformer is.

I replaced the doorbell with a new one but it is buzzing also. Could someone please give me advice?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like on of thewires went to ground or is leaking small ammounts of current between conductors. try removing the buttons and se if the contacts are corroded look for broken wires as well. thetransformers are usually hidden in a basement, attic or crawlspace. The problem hopefullywill be found at the button.
Let usknow what you find.

Hope this helped
