If it's a mechanical sound, chances are it is a mechanical problem. It could be something as simple as a wire that has slipped into the path of some moving parts.
1. First, check if your fan wobbles. Balancing the fan may silence the noise. Theremight be some loose part hitting a metal housing piece.
2. Next, check the blades. Can you see anything coming into the path of the blades or any moving part. Remove the blades then, run the fan motor. If the nosie does not persist, something coming into contact with the blades.
3. You may also want to take a look on the motor.Open up the motor housing and rotate the motor slowly by hand. Observe where in it's path of rotation and at which point the noise occurs. Look also for any objects coming into contact with the rotor.
4. Observe also if the motor rotate smoothly. Dry bearings can also make a rubbing sound.
