That's awesome I had the same clock as a kid so that thing must be like 20+ years old. The first thing I would do it check the specific wires that run from the button to the circuit board to make sure the soldering hasn't obviously cracked or come loose. The second thing would be to test with a voltmeter to see whether or not there is current. If the button's input wire is receiving current but when you push the button the output isn't sending it then the mechanical switch in the button is probably broken (they don't last forever and 20+ years isn't bad). If it's none of those things and it's legitimately an issue with the circuit board that is a way bigger problem and may be a huge pain to fix.
