I can't say exactly how to do this, but when you can't find the screws to take something apart, they are usually hidden by something else. You did good looking under the bottom cover, but what you're looking for is elsewhere. If there is a seam or line around the middle where it looks like two halves fit together and you can't find anymore screws, use a flat blade screwdriver and GENTLY start to pry them apart to see if they start to separate. If it doesn't give easily, don't force it. Many times a cover will snap into place and then is held secure by screws.

    Take it apart again and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. Also, you may need to remove the wires going to the motor and squeeze the terminals with pliers so that they are tight again when you put them back in place

    Open the door to remove the bag. Pull the side bumpers forward when the door is open. The profile of the edge of the top and the bottom of the vacum body is a "L" shape. The cross section of the bumper is a "I" and that holds the body together. Carefully lift up the top just a little to free the plastic end cap that conceals the cord spool. There are two plastic pins on the top and bottom that hold this piece on and they frequently get broken. (If that happens repair shops drill and hole and insert a screw.)There is a plastic protector plate that lifts up on either end and then is slid about 1/8th inch clockwise and then up.
    Copy the wiring pattern on the four male connectors on the motor and the wire spool.

Remove hoover vacuum fan


I don't know what model you have but on most vacuums you need to remove the nozzle housing from the vacuum, remove the cover over the motor to gain access to the motor. Remove any screws holding the motor in. Remove the motor and take the screws out to allow access to the fan. Remove the fan, replace and put back together exactly as it was before.

Accessing the motor on a riccar radiance


On a Radiance you will need to remove the screws going through the bottom of the vacuum nozzle housing which hold the cover on. Remove the cover and remove the screws holding the cover that goes from the brush roll to the lower motor. When you remove this cover tpyou will be able to see into the fan of the lower direct air motor to remove the obstruction. If it is in too far. You may have to pull the motorand open up the fan. This is not a hard thing to do but. If you have never done it, it can be a confusing job that may be best left to your Riccar dealer.

I need to remove the top of the motor unit on a Kirby Generation 3 to access the motor area of the vacuum


First remove the back, then remove the handle assembly. Then pop off the plastic switch cover and it has one screw on the back you will need to take out, then there are two screws in the front of the body housing and two on the back that you will need to take out and then you are ready to take the top cover off and get into the motor area.

Need to replace motor on a Simplicity upright vacuum and need help with the wiring the new motor. New motor is different from old one.


You might not have the right motor. Take the old one with you because it should go right back in as easy it was to remove.

Motor problem


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.

God Luck

Replacing and connecting


From the bottom, remove the the fan cover and fan. Then remove the top cover, it is held on by 2 springs that you remove from the bottom, and then the screw in the HT. adjustment knob. Take out the four screws holding the motor, then the motor will come out. Part # for a motor is 54352-11, or you can rebuilt your old one. Go to a repair shop and they can order what you need.
