What fan is that? If it's like a cheap OEM one, don't bother, or get a new one. If it's like a Noctua, RMA it and you will get a new one.

If the frame is cracked, it can affect noise.

If thats one that came with case, just get new one. Though RMA is also option. Crack in that place is bit problematic since fan can move. But if you place it so that cracked corner is to bottom part, I believe any effect on noise is minimal.

a fan cracking when you screw it in will probably be covered and it never hurts to ask most companies will work with you in some way to keep you as a customer.
