Hello Usually a light oil.Wd 40. Most of these motors are sealed bearings,meaning they do not get oiled.When they start making noise it means the motor bearings are getting worn and the motor will need to be replaced soon.
I have got 5 to 6 months out of noisy motors using a light household oil or WD 40.
Don't know why u have that much problems to take out the tv pedistal stand off it.Just check make sure u take out all the screws around tv back of the pedistal,make sure u take it all out.Used one hand hold the tv bazel frame tight and the other hand and jusy wiggle and push it in the pedistal and put it out.The pedistal should came right out.
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.
All new blowers are sealed units you really can not oil them. By the time they start howling it is to late. Now some evap motros inside have two small plastic plugs on the motor. The outside one is easy to oil the inside one is blocked by the fan. Very hard to get to without pulling the fan. My suggestion calla service tech and ask for free estimate on motor service or replacement.Russ
You may need to oil the fan motor. Most fan motors have an oil port at the shaft. It will be a yellow plastic cap that you pull out. once this cap is removed you need to oil the motor with an oiler that has a extending spout such as the ZoomOiler brand purchased at your local hardware store
