Might be lucky enough, to when you clean in there as David suggested; you can remove one fiber spacer. It should have a 1/32"-1/16" in and out movement.I do not believe GE ever made a 6" Oscillator (may be wrong though), so if you can remove the cage, blade set screw, pull off the blades, and open the motor case; you should be able to clean and check the fiber spacing alignment.
On a non-oscillating fan, I usually remove one fiber spacer from the front of the rotor, since the air force provides the push back on the rotor.
