When I installed the center radiator a couple of years ago and while everything was apart I did a thorough cleaning of the radiators and condensers. I also had very small pebbles keeping the fans from freely spinning. The pebbles on my car were not in the motors but in the small space between the tip of the fan blades and the fan shroud. The fan blades are tied together with a plastic ring. I removed the inner fender liner and used a combination of a water hose and compressed air to get them all out. I concluded that they came in from the vents in the wheel liner and kicked up by the tires.
I think that occasionally running the the AC is a good idea but it’s an easy to remove the wheel liners for a cleaning if the fans get jammed.
