I had same problem with 2 year old fan in Living room, after much work, took fan down tightened everything checked everything, I replaced fan with higher quality fan. That was 5 years ago, no problems since replacing. I've had a cheaper fan for the last 8 years and when this happened I took the fan down, cleaned it, oiled it and put it back up. Fans attract dust and dirt and should be cleaned every 3 - 4 months.
