My kiln contactors all eventually buzz. The transformer windings are constantly vibrating 60 time a second and will only be constrained from singing for so long. My kilns usually fire at night when I am at home, and some times I will fire them during the day and am sometimes shocked at how loud they can buzz. They still work fine, just sound like an angry bunch of hornets.
