Ring one. Great product. No buzzing. I was in New Zealand recently and my phone gave off the Ring warning to indicate that some action was going on. I got up, looked at the time and it was 4:00 am. I checked the video feed and saw my landscaper cutting my lawn. WHAT? 4:30AM. Whoops, I forgot the time difference between The Villages and New Zealand.

Mine works fine. They do make a transformer that is required for some door bells. I am sure if you call, they can diagnose the issue.

I had to take out the resistor to make the buzzing stop

A known problem. The Ring doorbell is drawing a small amount of current to keep its microprocessor running, thus slightly triggering your chime. Go to their web site & read the FAQ's. Many people are having the same problem. Their customer support people know the different things to try & will send you any extra parts needed -- free.

It's likely a short in the wires leading to the doorbell causing it to be constantly on. Since the power is on, the doorbell can't retract as it should. Recheck your wiring for a direct short.

Ring supplies a resistor that is necessary to be hooked into your existing chime wiring. If you did that, chances are as several have noted, your chime may not be compatible. My original one was not so I bought the cheapest chime at Lowe’s that was on Rings compatibly list. Good luck. The Ring products do work well.

Did you install the included transformer on your door chime? Mine required it, so the is a likely solution.

You most likely have a digital doorbell chime and need the diode

Newer doorbell chimes are digital and need a diode installed. The diode is included with the Ring doorbell and is very easy to install. I would try this first as it is a ten-minute fix if that is the issue. Good luck.

My son had an issue like this and he changed the polarity of the connections. That seemed to work

I have had some small problems with my ring camera and solar cell and Ring is very good in responding to any problems with any of their products. I did have to install a Chime pro in the house because my bell didn't work perfectly with the Ring.
