Hi james

Its likely you have grease and debris baked on to the spindle which is causing it to be stuck on.

Best to start with using some penertrating oil such as WD40, and give the fan a it tug and a tap to free it.

If that doesnt work next you can use a blow lamp to head it up in hope it may expand and pop off.

However as the blades are sharp its just a case of using force combined with care not to damage your hands or the shape of the fan.

Please let me know if you still require a call, happy to call but dont think I can add much more than the baove.

Btw, I used a cooking blow lamp and two pair of pliers on the fan blades. ��
