Yeah, get a new fan. There is no way you can fix it so that it is perfectly balanced. Even if you could super glue it back on, I am afraid it will still end up being out of balance enough to severly shorten the life of the motor, and risk other problems.
it used to be really easy to bust a fan on high rpm small fans by bumping it with a knuckle. they spin so fast there will be an extreme vibration with the missing blade. anyways a huge low rpm fan can have the blade super glued back on, but only by further lowering the fan speed to reduce vibration caused by the glue and misalignment
I was going to add an idea to fix it, but I realize the whole fin is broken. My idea was if the fin had a crack in it. Then you could just keep adding little strips of clear scotch tape until the weight equaled the lost amount of plastic. Then it would be balanced. But it sounds like a new fan is easiest at this point.
Edit: You could break off the fin on the opposite side . Just kidding.
Heh.. I pretty much love shopping online. Don't have ta walk, carry your stuff around or push a cart, then stand in line to pay.
I buy all PC parts online, and some other things.
Just about any online place also gives you the option to call them to place an order. That mighty puddy should be some good stuff to work with. I saw the commercial and it looks like it has allot of uses to fix things, but I haven't tried it. Although I was thinking about it.
Here's a quote from that site I linked:
It sticks on glass, tiles, metals, wood, ceramics and other materials. It%u2019s the only epoxy that you can sand, paint and drill on. It is perfect for doing minor home repairs such as sealing leaks on pipes and filling cracks on walls, floors and ceilings. You can use it to install new furnishings because it can hold up to 350 lbs of weight. You can also use it to fix broken tools and make them stronger than before.
Surely if it can hold up to 350bs of weight, I'd think another part of the blade would break before the blade ya fix.
