Ask the seller for a spare screw, or just buy one.
Three guys go to a ski lodge, and there aren't enough rooms, so they have to share a bed. In the middle of the night, the guy on the right wakes up and says, "I had this wild, vivid dream of getting a hand job!" The guy on the left wakes up, and unbelievably, he's had the same dream, too. Then the guy in the middle wakes up and says, "That's funny, I dreamt I was skiing!"
This is modern day culture of blaming someone else, Pamela is to blame
in this instance.
It is normal procedure when asking family to help out that you
personally check the components list to ensure all parts are available.
In fact it is normal procedure to check any self assemply that all parts
have been supplied.
As you obviously havent then it is a 50/50 as to him or the manufacturer.
It probably wasn't missing - those kits are accurately weighed in
manufacture as a check against this. Sometimes you might find a
part has been erronously substituted so the total weight is the same.
I never fit the nameplate - why would I want to advertise the fan's
maker and have it block some (very small) portion of the airflow?

There's a little project here which involves measuring the airflow
(and also noise level) with and without that name plate disc. I
suspect it might perform some useful function.
I daren't suggest it to my nephew in case he gets inspired to try it
without the protective mesh guard fitted, leading to the inevitable
consequences which he is mysteriously unable to foresee.
There's no airflow at the centre, which is why they don't have fan
blades there - or vv.
The whole story is unbelievable. You got a 16 year old to assemble this
a) it works
b) there's only one tiny screw missing
c) he read the instructions, so he actually knows there's a screw
d) he finished the job before winter set in.
I don't believe a word of it.
in case he gets inspired to try it
