Answer: 
Sounds like you already know the answer. Yes, it needs oil applied to the shaft. You can either dis-assemble it or purchase 3-in-one multi-purpose oil with the telescoping marksman spout. When applying oil take it outside or place a towel under the fan to make sure any drips don't get on the floor. Also, check the base of the fan blade for hair build up, if someone in your house hold has long hair.

Answer: 
I do not believe that this fan requires maintenance, but check the instructions. What appears to be happening is that the bearings have worn out. These cheaper fans often get worn bearings after a lot of use. This has happened to me twice, while using this exact type of fan in a window.

I do not believe that this fan requires maintenance, but check the instructions. What appears to be happening is that the bearings have worn out. These cheaper fans often get worn bearings after a lot of use. This has happened to me twice, while using this exact type of fan in a window. Outside humidity and occasional rain are bad for an indoor fan. Also, do not store it in the garage during wet weather, unless your garage is very low humidity.
Over time, the squealing will get worse, and the fan will either freeze up or experience an electrical fault, at which point you can have the metal collector take it away. Read Less

Answer: 
These motors do not use oil. If it is a bearing you may add a littler 3 in 1 to the bearing but you will most likely need to replace the entire fan.

Answer: 
spin the blade...unplugged and see if it wobbles ...at a slow free spin.......the fin tip should be the same distance......watch the fan blade spin from the front side......if your spin is equal .. then you probably have a bad bearing..........if noisy during the manual spin....then that's a roger.......cold be the blade pitch is not equal.....my guess..............BAD BEARING.......

Answer: 
From what I can see the bearings are factory packed and can not be greased you can try some light three in one or light machine oil on the front shaft with motor shut off that is and see if this will help do not use W D - 40 or anything like that as it will dry the bearings out

Answer: 
Yes, this is normal. Especially because the metal is an excellent conductor of heat, this is one way your fan motor cools itself. If you smell any burning or melting odors, that would mean the motor got too hot.

Answer: 
I run my fan all most 27 hrs per day if the motor is working properly, it should be warm and not be uncomfortable to the touch, check for dirt and or dust for blockage as the rear of fan motor has openings to let air pass thru to keep it at a safe running temperature

I do. This pulls air OUT of the whole house through the room with the window (if other house windows are also open, AND room door also open). But, that one "venting" room may get warm! so choose your windows wisely.

point the fan to the outside to blow heat from the interior of the house......then reverse....cooling is achieved by drying your sweat glands...I use my fans over a water tray..loaded with ice.......now that's a simple swamp cooler

It depends on what you want to do. Are you trying to bring in more air in or trying to exhaust air out of the house? If you are trying to just get more air in, point it into the house. If you are trying to exhaust air out of the house, point it out. I hope this helps.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 246 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by it is a great deal and works better then expected this thing will clean youre garage .it has crazy power .people get madd because you cant clean the blades .hit it with a air hose .this fan is great buy it it has 3 speeds and all of them blow well .it keeps the flies of you while you are working August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Fan The only reason I rated the fan quality good and not excellent is that the switch seems like it's not made that solidly but for the price I still highly recommend this fan. I bought it for use in my 400 square foot 2-car garage which doubles as a workshop. Even though it is a floor fan, if you are handy at all it is a breeze to hang from your wall or ceiling. The fan circulates air very well in the space. It generates enough wind that from the other side of the garage it blows my shirt around. If your looking for a fan to cool you down or provide ventilation during welding, painting etc....this will do the job nicely. In fairness, I have only very recently purchased the fan so I cannot speak to the longevity of its lifespan but from the other reviews I've read, I expect it to last plenty long enough for its price. This is a third of the price of a high velocity fan from HF and if your only looking for home use application it is plenty strong enough. If your looking to blow air around a large space such as a warehouse, you'll have to look at more expensive drum style high velocity fans. August 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Afraid I will wake the neighborhood I am laughing, because I came home around 3 in the morning and opened my windows and doors and wanted to cool the house down as fast as possible, so I turned this on, and it brought my small house down by one degree in 10 or 20 minutes, when it was in the 50's outside and 73 inside. I am afraid the neighbors will call the police if I do this every night. I am still debating about bringing it back or keeping it for nights when it gets cool enough early enough, but I like my neighbors and they like me. It sounds like a speedboat or a vacuum cleaner rather than a fan. Much louder than an air conditioner. June 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No way to clean the blades There's no way to clean the blades. Fan cage screws are impossible to remove. Don't let any of the paid trolls tell you differently. A really stupid problem that could have been avoided by using hex head screws or any screw geared to be removable for maintenance. July 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This fan can save your life. Bought one for fathers day, plugged it in and immediately went and got another one. If your a/c goes out then you can move them inside and save your life. This non-brand fan moves twice the air for half the price. $45.96. Save yourself the trip and get 2! June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Huge Improvement on the Previous Model I had the previous model of this fan (generic, marketed as HDX brand) and it wasn't very nice at all. It was extremely loud and didn't move the amount of air I expected it to with the amount of noise it made. This new model however is just great. It moves a ton more air and is a bit quieter (not quiet by any means, it's an industrial fan, but quieter). The stand is a bit deeper which makes it much more stable on the floor then the last one and I haven't had it fall over once. I like how the stand is easily removable too, makes it easy to jam in a window if needed. A great purchase, would highly recommend. September 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This fan will blow your hat off! Super powerful! This fan had 3 settings and even on the lowest setting it is amazing. It is noisy but if you want some real air flow just deal with the noise. June 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst fan ever. I first bought this fan 8 weeks ago, brought it home, and it refused to turn on. I should have taken that as a clue that it was a piece of junk, but I exchanged it instead. The new one worked great for 7.5 weeks and then the motor burned out. At least I think that's what happened, as it just stopped and refused to start again. There was no hum either, like it was trying to turn on, there was nothing. I really expected a metal fan to last longer, but obviously I was wrong. May 17, 2016
