    Please can you help?

    I have 2 lighting circuits installed in the ceiling in the kitchen
    - newly installed.
    Both on separate circuits with independent switches

    It is 8 recessed LED fittings For each

    One set is silent when on
    The other set has a pronounced buzzing sound when turned on. This I guess comes from a “transformer”?
    How to solve the noise please? (Not by me but what do I ask an electrician about?)
    Thanks

    Are you saying that the lighting is supplied from 1 Fuse /OCPD/Circuit Breaker?

    Hello and Welcome.
    Sorry to hear about the buzzing. Can you say a bit more about it? Do the lights work normally otherwise? Have they always buzzed? Are they on a dimmer switch?

    can you trace where the sound comes from. it's more likely to be dimmer than lights. maybe borrow a stethoscope from you friendly neighbourhood sawbones.

    The buzz comes from one of the recessed light fittings only

    in that case. I'd get the sparks who fitted them back to replace it. it will be the driver in that particular fitting.
