Not needed imo... id give em a call or email. Ask them for a replacement blade. You never know. I haven't seen parts listed but if ya take the old one maybe you can have a friend 3D print one or maybe there are already specs on that out there? Maybe aftermarket... just gonna be the shift diameter and the outside diameter and you have a complete unit again.

The broken fan blade will cause a wobble due to uneven weight, which will cause hell for the bearings of the fan after time and will eventually wear them out too. I'd contact the mfg for a replacement fan blade piece if possible, could get it working correct again for maybe less money than a new one. Or like Aquaman said, match the shaft and external diameter, and buy aftermarket.
