Year and engine details?

As per the 2 sticky requests at the top of the page, and the further prompt that was written under the subject header when you composed your message asking for these details to be included.

Are you sure the humming noise is not the heater/ventilation fan. I suspect the ignition switch is fault and you need to establish that when in the start position there is a 12 volt feed to the starter motor solenoid. Regards Peter

i found the noise was comming from the pre heat unit

so i went a bought a new one and changed it

The starter motor turned and the engine started -- i was well chuffed

The next day starter would not turn and the buzz from the pre-heat unit was back

i am totally confused

check all the earth wires from battery to engine., Take off and clean all connections. Could be a bad earth.

Don't overlook the possibility of a faulty battery or a bad battery terminal connexion. Are either of the terminals fizzing under load or getting hot?
