SOunds to me like you have a bad wiring connection in the fan unit, have someone check out all the connections, both between the fan and ceiling and the fan and light unit.

SOURCE: We have several 11 year
Several things besides lack of lubrication can cause the problem.
One or more of the fan blade irons may be loose. As well as the wooden blade itself. In both cases a Phillips screw driver will solve the problem.
The pull chains are clicking against the the fan. I've see this happen many times. Simply putting some tape around the chain, where it touches the fan, will generally silence it.
And last, but not least ... The fans may be out of balance. But, this may be due to loose screws in the fan blade irons.
As far as lubrication is concerned. Older unit (10 to 15 years) have sealed motors that were to be permanently lubricated. Even some of today's brands and models are too. At best, if none of the above silenced the ticking, is to use a little WD40 with a straw nozzle up into the fan housing. Be careful doing this as the WD40 may drip. Be sure the wall switch for each fan is OFF, before attempting this.
Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
