Squeaky noise from the motorafter running for
I would unplug the fan and clean off the motor shaft behind the fan and vaccum the motor housing and around the motor ends.
Once you've got as much dust and grime as possible removed, use some 3-in-1 oil and LIGHTLY oil each end of the motor shaft (behind the fan and next to the motor housing) and if possible, at the other end of the motor housing.
Make sure the fan is UNPLUGGED when you do this!!! Give the fan a slow spin by hand and hold upright to allow the oil to seep down the shaft into the bearings.
I usually do this once or twice a year on my portable fans and unless the bearing isn't completely worn out, it usually helps the fan spin more easily and keeps it running very well.
Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!
