Question about Home
Many times, the fan blades themselves are the cause of lowered air flow. Think of the blades edges as though they were the cutting edges of a knife. You know a sharp knife cuts its products better than a dull knife....transfer that concept to airflow. A clean blade is sharper and slices through the air much better than a thick edged dirty and dull fan blade. I've seen extreme cases where the edges were 1/8" thick and the area between the blades nearly filled with lint, dust, dog hair and the like.
Service the blower blade first and while removed inspect the inside of the stove in front of the fan with a flashlight and small mirror. That will tell you if additional cleaning is required. If your motor is a cheap little 'shaded pole' motor, it could just be dragging and operating at a lower rpm than designed, delivering less airflow. If so, it may have to be replaced. There are no oil ports on most of these small motors.
