    Duct Tape & a Few Screws Will Fix It

    I would like you to check out this fan blade that was Repaired by someone I know, more then I would like to say. Lets just leave it at that. Yes I did fix the situation with the factory original fan blade for this customer. PS, none of my employee's (Me or the old bold man) did the original duct tape/screws repair.

    Looks like something I would do at my own house, so my wife says. It does look like it is balanced.

    Hey worked until you got the replacement, right? Looks like he did a good temp. patch until the replacement could arrive. Maybe he got fired or quit or went missing right after he did that and the office didn't know that they had to order a new blade.

    I'd have to imagine a replacement blade would only be a few days out. If it was 100F outside, I'd buy a $150 window A/C unit for my bedroom and suck it up rather than risk having that blade destroy the motor bearings or come apart and take out the condenser coils. The quick fix could cost you over $1000 in repairs really fast. It's never a bad idea to have a small window unit for emergency back-up.

    Very creative. I assume the duct tape is for balancing purposes???

    Creative! You should sell it on ebay. It resembles something I've seen before. Just can't remember what right now!!

    I have seen that kind of mess before.

    One of our former employees used silver foil tape to attempt to tape a wing back on a blade.

    Tape didn't hold real well.
