Question Ceiling fan making a humming noise

When I turn on the lights of the ceiling fan using the dimmer, there is no buzzing and all is well...
But when I turn on the fan by pulling the chain the fan produces a humming noise??
It is not specific to this room and the fact that it is on a dimmer, because in another bedroom there is no dimmer and that ceiling fan also makes this humming noise?
What could it be???

Is the ceiling fan controlled by the dimmer as well as the lights? If so, not good. Not good for the motor or the dimmer.

No, only the lights are connected to the dimmer, the fan is only controlled by the pull chain.

Does it buzz when you turn the lights off with the dimmer?
