Check the bearings first. Give them a little squirt with WD40 and give the fan a couple of spins to see if the frees up the shaft before you tear the motor apart.

I turned it on, while in my driveway - and it makes a really loud noise, while spinning. Then the fuse blows. I realized the fan is not spinning freely - I took the assembly out, and it feels like the bearings or something is kind of messed up inside that motor assembly. I can't see how to take the motor apart or if you even can take it apart.
