First put the gasket on the spacer, thin end to to out, push it down all the way on the motor shaft, then put the nylon washer on, then the fan, metal washer and then the pulley, just snug it, (don't tighten too much just beyond hand tightening). Put the casing, top and handle back on.

Hello,

We have actually recorded a very informative do it your self video on how to replace the fan on a Kirby Generation upright.

The video is a two part video, but this explains step by step how to remove the old fan, and put the new one on.

If you need to purchase a new fan assembly, here's a link to the Fan assembly for your Kirby G4. Unfortunately you may only purchase them as a complete assembly:

The fan broke it is falling apart can that be replace at home or does it need to go to dealer


You can do it at home. You will most likely need a t20 torx bit screwdriver. There are four screws that hold the top on and five that hold the front plate on. There is a small hole on the shaft that sticks out and is easy to stick something in there to help you spin that off. Then pull the washer off, the fan, and there is a gasket and washer behind it. They all come with the fan kit. Good luck.

How to change the fan blade that is used for the suction on the vacuum cleaner?


You will need to get a genuine fan kit form a service center, then elevate the vac and remove the carpet head. From the back of the housing there will be a series of screws facing forward into the front housing, several are counter sunk. Removing them will replace the front face of the housing. You should not have to pry.Look for partly hidden screws
The belt shaft is threaded, once removed pay attention to washer and spacer location in front and back of fan.
Grip the old fan by hand and the shaft with a set of vice grips or slid a long nail through the fan shaft hole to unscrew the shaft.
Installation is reverse order with the shaft and screws hand tight... Post back to say how you make out

Replace Kirby legend II fan (impeller blade)


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

Broken Lexan fan needs to be replaced


It is similar to the G4 but without the tech drive so is easier.

Can you help me find a agent where I can buy parts for my Kirby, I live in Melbourne.

If the customer lives in the United States the customer can purchase the Genuine Kirby Parts from any Genuine Kirby Dealer including the fan, bags, belts brushroll, etc., or if you need help call a Kirby dealer in the yellow pages under vacuums or call 1-800-328-9430 to have them shipped to your location. Even if it is Melbourne, Australia – they can ship the items to you using a credit card to your location.
