We are having the same problem, our auger motor won't turn but our fan is running.

The buzzing is possibly your exhaust/combustion blower. This blower is the fan sound you hear as the stove starts up. If you ARE hearing a NORMAL fan sound, then the buzzing could be the auger motor. Do you have a Foxfire with an igniter? This tells me the series of model you have and what control system it uses.

Our Fox Fire Stove had the same symptoms. The buzzing sound was coming from the box that has the fuze in it (not the aunger or a fan). I was finally able to get it started after removing the clean out cover and cleaning out the tee elbow -- which didn't quite do the job. So I stuffed rags around a vacuum hose nozzle in the clean out and left the vacuum running while turning the stove on... and that did the trick (sort of kick starting the stove by providing the negative air pressure needed to keep the controls from buzzing and shutting the fan down before it had a chance to get moving and blow more of the ash that was gumming things up out of the system).

Testimonial: "Hmmmm ... how did you get the vacuum running ? should it be sucking air from the flow switch ?"
