If the fans are sleeve bearing, it may be possible to
re-lube the bearing. If the bearing is badly worn and
loose, then lube won't help it. You generally peel off a
label to reveal the bearing cover. You have to disassemble
the bearing to clean the gunk off the shaft, and put a lot
of oil on the cotton packing to the outside of the bearing.
If ball bearing, oil will quiet it for a few days, but you
really have to replace the ball bearing units for a
permanent fix. Boca Bearings has all sorts of tiny bearings
that fit fans, just measure them and order.
