Can not see how the spring tensioner has come off, some thing must have broken, get it fixed other wise it will wrap it self round and could cost you a lot of money , the easy way to replace new parts is to take the fan off, not expensive to have done if you can not do it your self about 1/2 hour job,hope this helps
