The problem is likely with the fan itself. This is a several years old unit. The fan may be turning slowly because the fan bearing lubrication has dried out. A couple of options. You could open up the system, locate the fan and apply a drop or two of oil to the bearing. Make sure the fan turns effortlessly. Or you can replace the entire fan assembly or have a service technician do it for you.

 

The Hardware Maintenance Manual for your specific model will provide a detailed procedure for locating and replacing the fan.
