Question about Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
From the rear, there are 3 screws on right and one on the lower left. There is 1 more on the front at the top just under the lamp.
You will also need to remove the safety switch - the plastic thing down and just right of the front screw. Take out the 2 screws. Pull the switch gently away from the case and try to get a look at how it's put together.
There is a bent rod inside with a plastic 'bar' holding it in. The flat end of the rod is on top - the round end at the bottom goes into a loop on a metal strip that is sticking out from the motor housing. By lifting up and wiggling, the rod will come out of the loop. Often, the plastic bar will come out and rod will just fall out. Just put the rod and the plastic bar back together (this is why you looked at it before). I tape the bar in place with Scotch tape or any thin tape and leave it that way.
The fan housing is sealed with caulking (or whatever the last person to service it used). A few raps on the side of the case with rubber mallet and/or sticking a thin putty knife in the joint should do.
You will need to scrape the joint clean and reseal it when you're done or it will blow dust like mad. Any caulking or gasket sealer will do. Just don't use high strength adhesive if you ever want to take it apart again without dynamite.
Btw, the fan pulley is a left-hand thread.
