Fan makes a clicking noise

The laptop was fine for the first week. But now the fan makes a clicking noise when it's on, as if the fins are rubbing against something. It's definitely the fan, the harddrive can't make noise because it's an SSD, and when the fan is off, the noise stops. Using the 'dust cleaning' function doesn't solve the problem but when the fan is spinning at 100% there is no clicking noise. Is there a solution to this that doesn't involve sending the unit back for repair? I'm afraid if I do get the fan replaced it's still going to make the clicking sound.
