Make sure you don't get a "Light" dimmer or allow anyone to talk you into using one for a motor speed control, they are not designed to handle the current and voltage requirements of a motor and will usually last a while and make lots of noise and then "let the magic smoke out". Good luck.

If you are using a dimmer switch to operate the fan instead of a fan speed controller, that is the cause of the humming. If you turn down the speed to the lowest setting and the hum gets louder, then your controller needs to be replaced.

Hunter Douglas fan humming noise


Which make/model do you have. If you bought a store brand ( Home Depot or Lowes ) it's a low-end Hunter. All you can do is take it back & get a new one and hope it's better. You can also try a fan control and see if that helps. Remember, you get what you pay for!

Refrigerator not cooling...makes hissing noise


From your problem description I would say it sounds like maybe the condenser fan is not running. If that fan does not run, the compressor will overheat, and get very unhappy, LOUDLY. There is a fiberboard cover on the back of the unit, unplug the unit, remove the cover and inspect the fan, it should turn freely if you nudge it with your finger. If it does not turn freely, you will need to make it so by lube, removing foreign object (dead mouse once for me) dust dragons etc... or replace the fan if necessary.
