Kirby heritage II is oil required on the shaft bearing.

I would not worry if it happened once and it was removed soon. Most likely it will cause very little damage to the bearing if any.

How to remove a Kirby Heritage II Armature


The armature that holds the fan on is reverse threaded. It turns to the right to remove it. You can put a nail or nail punch in the hole on the armature and tap it gently to the right. this should loosen it enough to unscrew. There's a washer, then the fan, and a spacer that fit over the shaft.

Have a Kirby Heritage II vacuum. Need to replace a split fill tube. How do I remove the outer cloth bag from the mini-emptor, and then how do I take off the old/attach a new fill tube?


There is no need to remove the outer bag. The fill tube can be removed by cutting it off near the bottom and pulling on the support wire to unwind it from the neck on the mini-emptor. I usually hose down the bag and slosh it around in my laundry sink to clean it. After it dries, the new fill tube can be screwed onto the mini-emptor. You can wet the bottom of the tube with plain water to make it go on more easily. If you screw it on firmly, there is no need for cable ties at the bottom. Re-attach the top adaptor ( bag holder ), and secure it with cable ties.

I just washed my rug, how do I get extra water up?


I would recommend using a shop/ wet vac to do that. It's made for sucking up a lot of water from carpet.

I need a manual for my kirby vaccum , its making a high pitch noise


A manual won't help you on this one. You have a bad bearing behind the impeller. Ther squeal at first and scream as they get worse. DO NOT OIL IT. That will only attract more grit into it.

I might buy a used Kirby Heritage II , my question is does it have drive tech


Kirby Heritage is not a self propelled vac...but the newer
G series 3-4-5 etc are. This is a rugged fan first vac, expensive to maintain if you are rough on it and bulky to use but it grooms the carpet nicely.
It is also a fan first vac, meaning everything hits the fan before being blown into the bag. Nothing larger than your fingernail should be picked up EVER or you will blow the fan. Maintain it and it should run a long time in wide open areas...

It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing needs to be replaced.

As long as it is Kirby belt - you should be fine. Make sure that the shaft is clean and that you do not vacuum something greasy or wet (grease or oil will lubricate the belt and shaft will loose the grip -heat up and burn). Make sure that brush roll spins freely.
I am assuming you know how to put the nozzle on properly (if you not sure - go here)

Good Luck

Well with a Kirby shampoo system there is no actual suction to clean up the water, they use a foam to clean if you are using the genuine Kirby shampoo, what the brush does is scrub and collect excess foam, I've used them before and really I'm quite pleased with the Kirby shampoo set it doesn't take as long as my parents Bissell did to dry
