Ways to Upcycle a Cheap Desk Fan?

Q: A couple of months ago we purchased a cheap white desk fan to try to cool down the room my two little boys sleep in. (I’m located in Melbourne, Australia and temperatures were reaching 30 degrees Celsius some days in there!) Well, the fan has since just stopped working. I have tried cleaning it and that helped a little, but after a few hours it died again. So I was wondering if there is any way I can recycle/upcycle it instead of just throwing it out?

Editor: Hmmm… we don’t have any upcycled ideas right now! The best thing we can think of is just to try and repair the fan, if at all possible. Any readers have upcycle suggestions or repair tutorials they can share?
