how can i check and repair feature faults in a model?

I made a wind turbine as a part in solidworks and exported it for simulation in ansys fluent. Its meshing is failing there with indications that there may be holes, slivers, hard edges and sharp edges causing the failure.
How can I check and repair such faults in solidworks before exporting the model for simulation?
Help on any of attached would be appreciated.
Thank you.

The attached model has the suggestion I made previously, which was splitting the airfoil section into a top and bottom surface.

This helped the trailing edge weirdness that was going on but whether or not it solves your mesh issues, no guarantees.

Tools - Evaluate - Check
Is one place to start, but it really depends on what you are looking for.
This model does not have errors detected, but the cool wavy edge of the blade is a "knife edge" with essentially no thickness. Given the size of this model, I could imagine that edge being more like an inch thick in real life.

The model looks cool with those ridges.
