Humming/Buzzing recessed light

One halogen recessed light fixture in a bedroom hums when the lights are turned on. Any idea on cause and fix? It is part of a four light set all on one outlet. Only one fixture has the problem. Thanks

Does it start to hum immediately when turned on, or after a minute or so?

Some bulbs will hum when dimmed, even in the same brandwhile others will not.

Are these dimmed?

I was thinking of the thermal switch, too.

It hums as soon as it is turned on. No dimmer attached.
