My K-223 recently, is making this obnoxious sound. It sounds like grinding and buzzing (I can't even explain it)Here is a YouTube video on it making the sound. To my knowledge, medium makes it stop for a few minutes then it makes the annoying sound again. I checked and it wasn't the grilles or anything else.
Please help, this is now my sleep fan because my 3733 motor is messed up and cant use it anymore.
(Also this was posted on a random account not my main channel cause my viewers will not know the problem)

Did you try oiling the motor? And yes this fan does have oil ports on both the front and back of the motor, the front oil port you have to go through the hole in the center of the fan blade hub the rear oil port is the little protrusion that's at the top of the rear of the motor (its the same thing in the front).

It was oiled a month or two ago. I don’t that would cause the noise. Any other ideas why it would do that?
