my ceiling fan would sometimes not start and making rumbling sounds (bearings) i did not want to replace or tear down so lifted plastic cover on top and liberally sprayed machine oil over exposed bearing & through slots underneath wd 40 this has cured problem perfectly just dry bearings would probably be better to use spray grease if you have --cheaper than new fan or bearings and only a few minutes work
