Your fan is completely missing the oscillator parts of the gearbox. It must have broken, and the owner cut it out and finished it to look nice. They also cut the end of the shaft of with the worm, so you will need a new shaft or rotor and gearbox if you want to fix it. Right now it will just move around from side to side freely unless tied down, it isn't actually oscillating. The red things are oilers and should be a brass. They unscrew like a regular thread. Remove them and clean them and add 3 in 1 electric motor oil in the blue can in them to prolong the fan's life, don't use regular 3 in 1 with the red/black bottle.
