That is most likely the motor shaft bearings going dry - not a terrible fire threat given the usual design, but I would depower it to be on the safe side till it is fixed.

That type generally has to be pulled down out of the housing to lubricate it, IF it has lubrication points - most manufactuers these days beileve in the fallacy of lietime lubrication, which in fact means when the lubrication fails because they were too lazy to put in a couple of oiling holes, its lifetime is over ! Planned obsolesence, just like car manufacturers with the "sealed" driveline and wheel bearings that are ungreasable.

Anyway, a Handyman MIGHT be able to lubricate or change out the motor; but a Heating and A/C contractor (your Search the List category) is your primary vendor for this.
