German term or phrase:streifende Lüfter, Lagergeräusche

Überprüfen Sie die laufende Anlage auf ungewöhnliche Geräusche (streifende Lüfter, Lagergeräusche, undichte Ventile etc.)
Can anyone help me understand what kind of noises are these?
Thanks a million!
Explanation: streifen is tough: 'leicht berühren', 'touch'
I interpret 'streifende Lüfter' as a ventilator, the rotor blades of which touch some part of the ventilator and thus produce a disturbing striking sound.
The best word for it would according to my Norstedt dictionary and my own experince be 'rattle'
