Electric Fireplace help?

Recently our Vermont Castings started making some noise. After taking it apart, I narrowed it down to the heater/fan assembly as it rolls around. It's not a super loud noise, but annoying none the less.

The fireplace model is the Vermont Castings VCEF33.

Does anyone have any experience with these? At this point, I'm hoping to not replace the heater/fan assembly, it still does its job nicely. Just noisy. Is it safe to lube it somehow? Thanks for any and all suggestions!

lubing just puts off the problem for a short period then you'll have to tear it all apart again to replace.
