Transformer Hum

I bought a 110V AC line isolation transformer to use with some old two-wire radios to see if I could reduce the AC hum in the audio. The audio is great, but now I’m bothered by the hum of the isolation transformer.

I read that it’s probably due to the transformer interacting with the metal enclosure. Should I remove the transformer from the metal enclosure and put it in a plastic one?
