What causes buzzing noise out of my hydronic gas radiator boiler?

My hydronic gas radiator boiler is making a noise when the heating kicks in. I first thought it might be the pump but on a closer listen, I realized it's coming from the grill that burns gas. It is not too bad but it is consistent and can be heard far away. It's been like that for awhile and the boiler functions fine. I would just like less noise. The brand is Raypack.

make a video of it with sound and post on U Tube. the gas burners can hum or resonate but that is not normal or good. usually it is getting too much air for the gas and not burning properly when that happens. should get it checked by a Pro to make sure the gas pressure is good etc.
