If the fan uses brushes, then there are sparks and those make ozone.
I imagine there are several ways to design an AC fan/motor but I
thought DC motors used brushes, sometimes. I've noticed a kind of
wax on the fan when it runs for a while- maybe that's the source of
the smell.

I haven't seen any fungus recently- false alarm?
This is what I'm trying to germinate:
    U. menziesii Albany, W.A.
    U. gibba N.S.W.
    U. tridentata El Pinar, Uruguay

Sometimes, you can peek through a vent in your 120VAC drill gun and
see several tiny sparks.
