Kitchenaid oven KEBC177KBL0 - faint humming noise

Read somewhere that it might be the transformer. Parts list http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kitchenaid-Parts/Wall-oven-Parts/Model-KEBC177KBL0/0593/0125300/W0110016/00005?​blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=KEBC177KBL0 has 2 transformers listed - #5 - part #PART NUMBER: 6610122 ($80) and #10 part #PART NUMBER: 8300642 ($23)

what is the difference between these two parts? How can I find out if one or both are good/bad? Could this be the source of the faint hum? How do I find out? I can hear it - very faint. Know it is coming from oven cause louder when door is open (oven off) and noise goes away when breaker to oven turned off. Hum is not always present and seems to have no relation to when oven has been on or off recently.

What do these do?

What happens if they stop working?
