Check the blade to see if it's making contact with the fan shroud,

Sure it's fan clutch? Check the idler pulley, is so equipped. The bearing on it does tend to go out and will make a noise. Remove the belt from the pulley and try to rock the pulley back and forth and side to side. If there is play, replace. Not expensive at all.
