Question about Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum
First six pictures HERE will let you know how to remove shell to see the motor. I would not recommend starting it before you get the screw out (you will need to remove 5 more screws from the front f the unit to get the fan case off). The fan case is glued so you may need to use screw driver and pray the fan case of the unit. If fan is damaged - remove it from Kirby as damaged fan is out of balance and Kirby will vibrate like crazy. Shaft has opposite thread so you have to turn it CLOCKWISE.
If the fan does not come off easily you may have to remove this part and access the rear of the motor where you can use a wrench to hold the armature (you will see where you can hold it right behind the commutator. Removing slide bracket assembly memorize where the wires are plugged in and how it is engaged with the transmission.
