shaded pole maybe

rescued a fan and applied a small amount of tlc
but it has slowstartupitis
once it gets going it is fine and is quiet and moves air
it has little to no torque and is not designed to have much but at start it seems to not have enough
maybe something is misaligned or some other problem
make your guesses
this is a cheap three speed fan but it looked new when i got it and it had a loose wire so naturally it was discarded

Try adding a drop of glycerin to the armature bushings.
