Unfortunately the Hoover F5905-900 is a little outdated, and Hoover doesn't have that model on their site. They do however have the Hoover F5906-900 instruction manual which I linked below. This model is identical to yours, and will explain all that you need to know.

Well sort of. For the G4, the bottom boot is sold with the internal fill tube that inside of the outer bag, where the paper bag connects. These two parts are sold complete as an assembly already put together. You'll just need to take off the strap at the bottom of the boot that holds the outer bag onto the boot. This strap is sometimes difficult, and sometimes it's easier to just purchase a new strap and install it.

Thanks for the clarification. I have never seen this problem previously in a Kirby. I wonder if the belt keeps sliding off because it's been stretched out? After about 1-2 years, the belts on the Kirby will stretch out to a point where there can possibly slide off the motor shaft. Have you tried just replacing the belt on the unit first?
If you're sure that it's not the belt that may be stretched out, and you'd like to replace the motor shaft, you certainly may do this. The only problem with this is the motor shaft is not sold by itself as a separate part. The only way to purchase this motor shaft is to purchase the entire fan assembly, which includes a new fan, and the hardware necessary on the fan assembly.
In terms of installing it, we've actually recorded a video repair on how to replace the fan assembly, which involves removing the motor shaft in order to get the fan off. Since you have to purchase the fan assembly anyways in order get the motor shaft, you may want to go ahead and replace your fan assembly at this time also. Even though your fan may not be broken, on Kirby's the fans can become coated with dirt and fine dust, which can sometimes lead to the Kirby exhausting a bad smell. If you'd rather not replace the fan, you may remove the motor shaft without disassembling the entire machine, you'll just need to secure the fan somehow so that the fan doesn't spin while you're using a nail to turn the motor shaft off.
Anyways, here's the video repair that we recorded. I hope that this helps you.

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Unfortunately that normally means the motor has shot its bearings and/or its carbon brushes. I think it is time to purchase a new one. On the bright side there are some rreally great vacuums out there! If you want any help choosing a new machine send me a message. Happy Vacuuming :)
I understand that this model has been highly rated online for a while, however another model which has a 2 year warranty and is black in color is the F5912-900. These are a great steam cleaner at a fair price. The Dual V is a step up but will have better extraction and easier to connect the hose and tools. and you will not need to pre-mix the solution. I have the F5900-900 model and it works just fine for me, it is just getting the correct steam cleaner to fit your needs and requirements.
To answer your question, most of these can be purchased at your local department stores or major retailers. a complete listing can be found at the hoover web site.
