Sorry to hear of your problem but I definetly would not even start the motor let alone fly with a missing blade. The fan is now severly out of balance, if you try you will probably end up destroying the rest of the fan, motor and model. These fans spin at very high speed, a slight imbalance can be enough to end your day quick. Get yourself a new fan....

What fan is it. Electric or glo?

Parts are available for some of the fans for glo, like the Dynamax, but I don't know about electric.

If it's electric, have you checked if the OEM sells just the fan portion?

Do you have the broken piece? Can you post a picture?
