The humming sound is likely a convection fan motor trying to run.

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information? The model tag is under the left rear burner on the side panel.

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 months ago

There are two fans, one inside the oven on the back wall, the convection fan. The other a cooling fan. Can you tell if both are running or not running?
