First I suggest RMA if there is a warranty left.  Fan may not be covered.

Change the fans could be an option.  Remove the shroud and change the fans.  Attaching a standard fan to the shroud will be challenging, but it has been done.

A squirt of penetrating oil on the shaft will work if the bearing hasn't failed.

The look of the left fan suggests that it has a worn bearing.  How long has it been used?  Not a long use will point to something in between the shaft and bearing.  Clean with electrical contact cleaner, then lube.  A generous amount of lube should clean as well.  And lastly another option is to disassemble and clean.
