I have this fan, i don't know exactly what model it is, but i know it is a wizard husky 12 inch oscillating fan. when i get home I can tell you the model if it is important, but I am having this issue with it:
when I first turn it on it works great. runs smoothly and quietly and oscillates perfectly, but once it has been on for a while (an hour or so) and gets warmed up it makes a really annoying high pitches squealing it only does it when oscillating and it only does it when it is moving one way. when it is moving the other way or oscillating is off it is just fine. I have taken it apart and  cleaned/oiled the bearings and everything seems fine.

Can you post a photo? it sounds like the oscillating mechanism needs grease

i can post a photo when I get home. what exactly do you need a photo of? the gears are plastic so i don't think they could be making the noise but i could be completely wrong about that. grease in the gears is probably a good idea anyway. if it helps i will post a photo from the internet of a similar one but until i get home that is all i can do.

thats what i thought it would be, the rear oscillator arm is exposed? does that need a touch of grease?

I don't think so. it sounds too high speed to be that. I do however believe i figured it out. there is a metal gear on the end of the motor shaft where it goes into the oscillator box. i think it is rubbing up against the fan housing by where the shaft goes through. what could i do to eliminate this. also i would like to grease the gearbox because the old grease although not bad is not great either. what kind of grease should i use and where do i find it?

IF YOU LOOSEN THE SCREWS HOLDING THE MOTOR "BULLET ON YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO TURN IT JUST ENOUGH NOT TO TOUCH THE ROD GOING TO THE OSCILLATOR
