Arrow a/c fan blades not turning easily

Rheem a/c fan blades act as if they are stuck and won't easily turn unless I manually spin the fan blades as if to brake it loose. Then fan turns fine and spins freely for a few days only. Then problem again. It appears to me that this may require oiling the fan motor somewhere but where? I can't seem to find/or maybe overlooking where to add oil. Any ideas or suggestions appreciated.

Thumbs up Welcome to our forums deepinit!

The symptoms you describe would lead me to say you need to replace the motor.
The bearings are surely worn and oiling would only make it run for a very short period of time.
