The fan blades do not move freely when you push them

If the blades won’t turn, then something is probably mechanically impeding the fan blades from moving like a loose screw. So the best way to solve this problem is to take it apart and look for the thing stopping the fan from spinning freely. Turn the fan off at the breaker before taking it apart of course.
