after WD40 (I prefer CRC) breaks up the crud lubricate the bearnings with 
a good silicone lube like Triflo.  remember WD40 is NOT a lubricant it is 
a solvent

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.
