    Did you have a question? Replace the thing. – Ecnerwal Aug 9 '15 at 12:41
  • You could try taking the fan down and cleaning it. Clean the motor with electric parts cleaner. Make sure it spins freely. Maybe oil /grease the shaft / bearings or whatever it has. But, like others have said, the motor seems to be dying. I doubt you'll see much improvement and you could make it worse. – maplemale Aug 10 '15 at 15:38

Sounds like the fan motor is dying. Sadly, nothing lasts forever. The more expensive units can be repaired, but it sounds like you have a cheaper model that isn't made to be repairable.

Luckily, cheap ceiling fans are pretty affordable. Mine cost under $40.

Time to replace it.
