2000 Minn Kota power drive makes a humming noise when turned on at low power and speed

I have a 2000 minn kota poverdrive 50lb that I have completely rebuilt the lower end of it.( new lower housing, brushes,seals, bearings,ect). I have also ditched the foot pedal and converted it to hand control by wiring a 40amp

10-50 volt pwm DC motor speed control in the head and wiring directly to the head eliminating the electric steering and battery gauge. It works great but at low power and speed it makes a humming noise until I turn the dail up. Any ideas?
