does magnetism stop the 4S vibrate from working?

I use the ifixit magnetlic project mat when taking apart phones and during that when I take the 4S vibrator out I also put it on the mat. When I reassemble the phone it no longer works yet I remember being very careful when removing it. This has happened twice, am I not being careful enough or does the magnetism from the project mat cause it to stop working?
