Glad you got the rattle cured! I have a couple of Emersons that were a bit "chatty" but managed to cure them without sleeving in a new bearing.

On one fan, I used non-detergent 30w oil. The other, I put a small bit of heat shrink wrap on the tip of the oscillator rod (where it should fit into the slot in the hub). Seems that the oscillator rod wears out on the tip, or the slot in the hub it engages gets wallowed out... maybe both.

Both are ideas I got from posts here at the forum (I take no credit).
