Well, that fuse must have been carrying current in order to blow. And yet
something happens without it in place?

I think you need to check the wiring very carefully. And check for shorts
or leakage to ground.

Are you sure it's the motor that's buzzing?

Pull out plug 4 from the back of the control unit (this is one of the 15 pin 
molex plugs, I think it is in the top row at the end nearest the mechanism)
Does the motor still buzz?

Can't you print out the sections you need?
