Why is my door bell ringing by itself?

We have had a couple of cold days. Yesterday, however, the doorbell rings by itself. It carried on for 5 minutes until I took out the speaker from the outlet.

Update

Cleaned the door bell parts and replaced the speaker. Seems to be fine now.

Have you checked the door bell switch that was last pushed? Check for stuck or dirty contacts.

If it is wireless you may also have RF interference from a Microwave, wireless router, etc...or dying battery. I've noticed on TV remotes when the batteries start to die, and the weather gets cold, they can get whacky.

Do you have any ideas on why my doorbell would ring at the exact same time, 4:57 PM, every day, except one day, that I know of, since 1/20/18? It started ringing at different times (8 AM, 9 PM), also, about a week or two before that date, but it became consistent at 4:57 PM on that date. Then today, 1/29/18, at 12:34 PM, my doorbell rang. (I have 4:57 PM today yet to come.) WHY??!! (As you can tell, this is getting to me!!)
