I actually did try before taking them apart. I used synthetic motor oil since its much lighter than other oils but it still made the same noise.

hum... well, was worth a shot. usually some lube would clear up that type of noise, but i guess something in there is already worn out. bearing that small is hard to come by and not really worth tracking down new one's so i guess you just have spare parts now.

there is really only 3 parts that makes that type of noise. the bearing itself, the ring clip that holds the fan blade assembly onto the frame of the fan, and the spring that keeps the fan blade assembly in place. those are the contact points that can make those type of rubbing/grinding noise. usually some lube in those areas keeps the noise at bay...
