Old, noisy Hotpoint refrigerator

Hi all,

I've got an old Hotpoint refrigerator that is making noise. The Fridge is a freezer on top, fridge on bottom type, model # CTFP14CKC. The noise is coming from the condenser fan or condensor fan motor. It makes noise when the fan comes on, but the noise is not constant and varies in intensity. It's sounds for all the world like the fan is scraping against something, but takeing the back panel off and inspecting it shows the blades are not hitting anything. Can this be easily fixed (e.g. via cleaning, lubrication, etc) or should I just replace the condener motor? Thanks.

If the motor itself is making unusual noises
it would have to be replaced.
