Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

The buzzing means that your cooktop lockout switch below the knob got wet. Unplug the cooktop or flip the circuit breaker on your house to the cooktop, and just turn leave the unit off for 24 hours to allow it to dry. Hopefully it dries out and works again like normal but if not then you need a new switch harness I'm sorry to say.
