Your best bet is to UNPLUG the fan, remove the protected cage and the cover that protects the motor and take a can of compressed air and blow out any dust that you happen to see that has built up in the fan. Then look for a bushing that is towards the front of the shaft and the rear of the shaft and place a drop of 3 in 1 oil where the bushings are located. I would place a couple drops on the front and rear shaft, spin the shaft by hand, move it back and forth, then then put it back together again and try it.
This should extend the life of your fan as long as the motor isn't burnt up, and the fan hasn't been left on for a long period of time when the blades where not moving.
Hope this helps.
Keep in mind.. a little maintenance goes a long way.

Lubricate/spin the shaft (by hand) on both ends -- it may be gunked up.
If that doesn't solve the problem, it's the start capacitor inside the motor housing. Probably needs replacing.
More info, let me know.
