This type? http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=whirly...1t:429,r:1,s:0

You can try lubrication, but probably you need a new vent. The good ones have ball bearings the cheep ones do not. In some cases these type of vents can draw to much air.

There is no fixing it, just replace it or better yet get rid of it. fix the hole in the roof and install a ridge vent.
Then 100% of the roof will get vented not just a circle around the vent, and will not have that ugly thing sticking out of the roof.
