I can think of three things that could hum.
The motor can hum, it usually would be the windings coming loose. Not
as bad as it might sound, but it will get worse and you should replace the
motor now, not next year.
Some speed controls can hum. Is the speed switch part of the fan or at
a wall switch?
Something mechanical loose. This should sound different.
