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.

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