If the model is equipped with a fan, and the noise occurs even when not oscillating it must be a fan/blower motor. If it is a squeak. A squeal could be an electical component going bad which is always bad. I would definitely take some bottom drawer tools , ie. screwdrivers and WD-40 and oil that squeaking motor. Being a fan it goes through alot of air pollutants. That tends to build up on the shaft and can work its way into the bearing seal. Good luck.

I just fixed this problem on one of my Hunter brand ceiling fans. My particular fan had a circle of screen wire mesh inside of the bottom of the motor housing (visible through the vents). Based on the sound, I thought this was what was being rubbed. I made sure the light switches were off and then disconnected the wires and took the fan down. I removed the four long screws on top that hold the two (top and bottom) pieces of the motor housing together. Pulled them apart and removed the screen wire mesh from the inside of the bottom piece. Put it all back together and no more scratching noise!
