grinder for Coffee blade hard to turn

I have a Braun Coffee grinder. It has worked well for years and now the blades are stuff and hard to turn. The motor just hums when we turn it on. I took it apart and oiled the shafts on both sides of the motor but the motor still turns very slow and hard. Did I do the right thing? What is the best way to fix the motor so it turns easily?

Thank you,

That is a good start but if the bearings or bushings are worn out there might not be anything easy you can do. Can you feel the motor dragging or scraping when you turn the blades?
