    I use heavy gun oil.
    Most of the fans I fix are not frozen, but loose and noisy.
    The heavy gun oil stays in the gap better than the thin stuff.
    For fans without the plastic plug, an insulin syringe filled with
    oil will inject right thru the label, often without removing the
    fan from the box.

    I will give a dab of molybdenum grease a go, as I have a tub of it, intended
    for military use. Although called grease it looks more like oil and migrates
    everywhere, including uphill , and is certainly high temperature
    formulation. No sign of wear or wobble
