loose fan blade

The fan blade in my heater has a tendency to creep forward and hit the front grill. A quick and temporary fix is just to push it back.

The blade is attached to the motor shaft by friction. There is a spring on the fan blade to help with the friction, but apparently not enough.

I guess a permenant fix would be to put some adhesive on it, but I want to be able to remove the fan in case I need to repair other areas. Any suggestions?

I'd use a little blue LocTite on it.
