How would you construe an air conditioner hum as a breach of lease? All air conditioners make noise when running, so unless you'd rather have a place with no A/C, you learn to put up with it. When it's a truly constant noise, you'll eventually tune it out. And, if it isn't coming from YOUR building, even less one can do about it...that would be like complaining to your landlord about the traffic on the street outside your apartment...the landlord has no control over that. If you can't get used to it, move when your lease is up (better yet, pay attention to these things when looking at new places).That's really annoying!
You could try going to court …it's a common-law nuisance, and it's probably a breach of your lease also (if it's in your building).

If it's functioning properly, it's fine. If it was rattling and banging and pumping out hot air, then there's a problem. The worst are usually the window units...if the noise bothers you, turn it off.Yes, but some air conditioners make more noise than others. There has to be a limit.
