Can you give us more detail? I have no idea what your problem actually is.

There is intermittent buzz that comes from amp itself. Most of the time no problem but once in a while it will buzz for 5 or so seconds. the buzz does not come from the speakers I don't think and it is not loud. Thanks for replying.

That will be coming from the power transformer. If it is not loud enough to be distracting you can ignore it.

is there anything that can be done? Just Curious
The only simple thing you can do, is to open it up and check the mounting bolts and any bolts securing the laminations are good and tight. Otherwise the repair is complex and expensive and generally requires replacement of the power transformer. This is not an uncommon problem with power amps, especially procamps. Generally these are in locations where this type of noise is not an issue. So one option is to locate it in a more remote location.
