Installed fan so that it turns freely.  Then installed blade after following and verifying directions.  Applied 36 ft.-lb. torque.  Blade does not turn.  Got yellow light on mower.  Can't find the problem.  Need suggestion.

Could you post a picture of the underside showing the arrangement of all the parts?  The fins on the fan should be facing the mower so make sure that's correct.
When you say blade does not turn. Do you mean by hand, or when trying to run the mower?

Phil, watch the YouTube video; the washer alignment may be the problem. https://youtu.be/IQlZLjcutRs
