Since posting, I have found the exact replacement!
Upon taking the fan out of the heatsink, I found it is an "ADDA"
brand, model number AP4505MX-G90
Googled that number, and got a hit for Mouser Electronics! $19.95 w/heatsink.
If you need another spare, here it is:
This must have been divine intervention, since I'm preparing to order
some other stuff from Mouser. The fan is now on the list.
Meanwhile, while the fan was out, I took the bearing cap off the
backside, and put a drop of 3-in-1 oil in there. It's quiet again,
but may not last long.
