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.

Hello can you help me please? I have a Kirby G4 vacuum cleaner, It did work ok until it started to give off burning smell and lots of sparks from the brushes. I have changed these brushes, the motor still...


Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor.

My Kirby vacuum cleaner will only run for a few


could be caused by bad bearings in the motor or bad carbon brushes and a worn commotator on the armature. check the cord where it connects to the top of the handle on the swivelling strain relief. usually the cord fails there .

Kirby Heritage II Vacuum Carbon Brush Placement


yes the carbon brushes float on the commutator and are spring loaded. the spring washer goes in the housing first then the other washer. let me know if you have any other questions

Sparks from the Kirby Motor


1. Do you think this may be the problem?
YES

2. How come it continues to rotate?
Motor armature consists of multiple coils and just some of them burned so even though it keeps spinning it does not function properly.

3. Do I need to replace the armature?
We have switch replacement instructions HERE and they will take you as far as accessing the motor. We do not have motor assembly instructions yet but if you get that far - motor is not that hard to reassemble. You may have to spend some time getting tolerance ring back in and make sure you install finger spring properly.

Good Luck

Replacing the fan hub on a kirby classic omega 1CB


I resolved the problem .I found a way to hold the armature shaft still while I unscrewed the pulley drive nut ,which must be removed in order to remove the vacuum fan.

> There probably is a special tool somewhere that would fit over the armature ( the metal part that spins on the shaft of the motor inside the stature) to hold it still ,but since it was suspiciously omitted from the rest of the fan blade parts ,I had to fabricate one myself.

>I happen to have three ,steel blade ,broad paint scrappers which were about 2 to 3 inches wide and thin enough so there blades fitted nicely into the groves that run the length of the armature without damaging it, as would be the case with a narrower screw driver blade .

>Bracing the handles of the 3 scrapper blades in a slot that was in the side of the case ,which was probaby its' intented purpose, held the armature shaft still while I unscrewed the fan nut which happened to have a reverse thread.( turns clockwise to loosen) .

>It unscrewed with ease. Problem solved!

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Kirby making clicking noise
Posted by jenad on Jun 12, 2008
In the middle of vacuuming my car out, my Kirby Sentria began making a loud clicking noise, sounds like it's coming from the motor. It's never done this before. I checked for debris in the fan and removed the bag and checked there too. The vacuum still works, just not sure if I should continue to use it.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The clicking noise sound s to me that it is coming from the motor like you said and I am not sure how new the Kirby vacuum is, but if it is still under a factory warranty it is a good idea to have Kirby take a look @ the vacuum because it could be the fan, carbon brushes or something could be hitting the armature making a clicking sound and if it is the armature then I would get it check ASAP. Feel free to contact your local factory authorized Kirby dealer in your area and also I will give you the website and the customer service phone # to Kirby for further assistance. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

110-220V


You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them.
