I had a similar fan which
quit. I could sometimes get it to start
spinning by banging on it. Finally took
it apart. Lots of small screws, all
small phillips. As I suspected, the
"thrust bearing," which supports the rotating components, had become
"stiff." I thought that it would be a non-friction (ball bearing),
but it is only a bushing, with washers supporting the shaft. With the motor opened up, I greased the
bearing with petroleum jelly, and reassembled everything. It is spinning very quietly now. Final comment - this is probably more work
than the average fix-it person would want to take on, but it is doable. It took about two hours, start to finish. I could do it in less than one hour now that
I know how to do it.

The bearings on the motor are dry and need oil. It's really not made to be oiled, but you may be able to take it apart and get some oil to the bearings if you want to mess with it.

In case an electrical appliance does not do anything anymore, I always first check the fuse(s). There can be a fuse in the electrical plug (in case of UK-type of plug for example) and possibly also somewhere within the fan's housing. In case you do not know how to measure a fuse, just simply replace all the fuses in one go with a new fuse of the same (!) rating. I hope this will solve your problem.
