Okay so, a bit more playing around.  The buzzing stops if I rotate the motor.  
And then after rotating the motor if I power on and off, it just makes a single 
click.  Every so many turns though it starts buzzing again.

So maybe we need to get back to the motor and why it's not doing anything?

Think I understand.. I didn't have a clothespeg.. I took some heavy cardboard 
paper and folded it and then stuffed into the space between the cylinder and 
the back of the magnet.  Still buzzes.

My eyes must be going.. I can't see any clothespin in that photo.  I see an 
arrow and a dark space between that cylinder and the back of the magnet..

If you put a clothes pin as this photo shows, does the buzzing go away?

If so, then you may need to adjust a screw somewhere.  You may have an 
"incomplete" ready mode (just a little chattering when current loop is closed).
