The fan is more than likely damaged by overheating.
Before giving up completely on it take the motor
to a motor repair shop.
It could possibly be repaired depending on the skills of the shop.'
These kind of shops have become harder to find.
If you want to try to repair it yourself open the casing and look for anything
that may have melted and is blocking the motor from turning.
If you can get the motor to turn freely by hand it may work.
Add oil before testing.
