Auxiliary fan problem

I'm pretty sure I have a problem with the auxiliary fan; last summer whenever the car was either idling or going really slow (drive thru) I would hear a fan start and then it would make noise, like it's hitting something. It turned out that my t-stat wasn't working properly so it was changed. After that the noise would occur only once every few weeks. Same thing now, during winter, every so often I hear the fan start, noise, and then it stops in 10-12 seconds.

I checked and there's nothing hitting the fan, but is there a way to turn it on manually? Whenever I went to my mechanic it wouldn't want to make the noise (what a surprise).

I assume the whole fan would need to be replaced, maybe this is bearings issue..?
