In order to replace the fan you will buy a 2 or three piece lexan fan kit containing the fan a spacer and shaft.
You must remove the carpet head and then looking from the back of the machine you will find a series of philips screws on the outer edge of the fan housing facing towards the front, several of which may be partly covered by the motor housing. You will remove the forward facing screws to allow the housing to separate and reveal the fan.
If you are lucky there will be a sideways hole through the impeller shaft allowing you to slip a nail through to help twist the saft to unscrew it while holding the fan .
The shaft will turn off revealing a threaded motor shaft with spacers which the broken fan will slide off revealing a second spacer at the back . Be sure to replace these spacers in the same order when re-assembling the unit. Secure the shaft hand tight. Post back to advise if you need further help

Our Gen3 Kirby still works but is extremely loud not - I am currently only using with the wood floor attachment (no brush) - thoughts?


this could be the impeller fan next to the motor shaft under your attachment hose connection.

to determine this, remove the hose from the unit, and turn the fan shaft with your hand looking down inside the unit. You should see blades on the impeller fan, and they should all look squared off and curved. If any of them are broken or worn, it will make the unit louder than normal.

Also, the hose attchment has an increased noise more than using the brush attchment anyway because it increases the suction for the hose more than on the carpet. IE the motor runs faster giving you more suction.

An Impeller fan for the G3 Kirby will run about 18-39$ for the fan. More for labour.

Good luck,
Mark

Kirby Legend II
Posted by smokey 1 on July 22, 2008
Hello, Help please, Using my vacuum, turned it off briefly, then went to turn it back on and it would not .I checked plugs which were both fine. Motor is strong, impeller is fine. The light comes on near the button to turn it on however it's not doing anything. Switch maybe? Just a guess. Thanks for your help! Alice
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It can be only one of 2 things, either it could be the safety switch or the foot switch and they would have to be replaced. 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.
