Strange asymetric capture on permanent magnets

I have a 3D model with permanent magnet (in shape of a cube) which captures magnetic particles on to it. However, the particles seem to get attracted to a random point on one of the edges of the magnet . Is there any reason why symmetry is lost?
I tried varying the spatial and time discretization and parameter values but found that eventually the particles got accumulated in an asymmetrical manner.
Any help will be appreciated.
