Question Geometry or component & how to rotate it?

Hi new here. I work on PC and a Google release Sketchup. I am not a grand specialist. I designed a piece of wood furniture for kids that has an element of repetition (storage). Its MDFboard or plywood 1.5cm thickness. I designed all the repetition each one by one (for the practice) When all was done I found many mistakes of 1-2mm that only appeared when I made the curved topings. So I copied one of the elements line by line made it a geometry and component and corrected it 100% and now am trying to integrate it again into the main model. BUT now I hit a problem. I made it a component and a geometry and since then cant seem to rotate it all before or after moving into the final model. I need to rotate it 180% I cant seem to do it and I have a problem also to guide the idem exact into position along the XYZ ...direction. I have rotated many things before and cant find out why I can rotate this item. I saved it into another file alone but still it will not rotate. What am I doing wrong while creating geometry or component? What are the best tutorials you suggest to solve this problems. I cant seem to find a place here to upload the screen shot of the model there is a left and right to it that is why I need to rotate the insert to fit into the white space. Thanks for any help anyone and merry Santa Claus tomorrow.
