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.
