Could also be the altenator, water pump or one of the other pulleys

Just spray it on with engine running. If the noise doesn't disappear then it's one of the pulley bearings, waterpump, alternator or A/C compressor bearings.

There is only 1 belt, it has nothing to do with the fan, people just call it that. It is call a serpentine belt or drive belt. You should spray the belt as well.
