The vacuum fan disintegrated. Unable to determine how to remove the fan from the motor shart.
Follow the steps below gradually:
Remove your vacuum's power head by first switching the carpet
height adjuster to its highest setting. Turn the belt lifter, making
sure that the two red arrows pictured on the lifter are pointed at each
other. Disconnect the head, and take it off.
Remove the bag and handle by first unsnapping the handle by pushing a
button on the back of the handle located near the base of the handle.
To take off the bag, place your hand on the plastic located at the
bottom of the bag, and pull it off.
Remove the metal body by simply unscrewing the four medium-size screws
that are now visible because of the power head removal. Once the screws
are removed, you can easily lift the metal body right off.
Remove the front fan cover plate using a screwdriver to
remove the screws located on the front of the plate. Once they are
removed, the fan plate should pull off. If it doesn't, gently pry it
off by wedging the screwdriver between the plate and the base.
To remove the fan, clamp a pair of vice grips on the pulley to keep
it from moving. Attach a 9 mm end wrench to the motor shaft; this will
ensure that the shaft won't spin. Turn the vice grip, which will
un-thread the pulley, and pull off the fan.
Integrate the fan, and put the vacuum back together. Plug it in, and test it to make sure it's working properly.
