Exclamation Hello all! Heat pump Cond. fan help please.

I have a Heil heat pump and the fan blade is loose on the spindle (The pole that comes out of the fan motor). I have tried tightening the set screw and it does nothing. The blade is still wobbling around instead of being fixed to the spindle.

I first started having issues in the ice storm here in Nashville last week. I assume icicles formed from the top of the condenser and got into the fan blades.

Can the condenser fan blade break free from it's mounting? It's as if the welds broke or something. Anyone else had this happen?

Yes, the blades can fail in this manner causing damage to the coil. I recommend replacing the fan blade (or having it replaced).
