Buzzing noise from driver seat heater?

Anyone else experience a (noticeable) buzzing when the seat heater is turned on?
I can understand the vent/cooler, but the heater is kind of weird - like it's going to die on me.

There seems to be a supplemental motor driving a fan for these seats. When I first got the car i wondered why there was a rushing sound that would not go away... then I discovered one of the seat heaters was turned on. If found that surprising because my old car would just heat the seats silently, probably using wires stitched into the seat.

i don't know for sure, but if you hear a buzz... maybe some dirt or debris got into the fan somehow. Not sure how easy it is to get inside that and take a look

I believe there are serviceable seat filters. Maybe they need a change if car has higher miles.
