SOURCE: bad fan
There might be latex sealant around the perimeter of the fan casing. This was the case with my G3. The latex sealant prevents dust from blowing out of the fan "chamber" while it's running and under positive pressure. And as reddevil16 said, the spindle is a left-hand thread. When you reinstall, it doesn't have to be super tight, just snug. It will tighten right up as soon as you turn it on.

Take the bag asm. and handle off. Then remove the plastic strip covering the switch, remove the screw there, remove the 3 screws on the housing, turn it over and loosen the screw near the back, the housing should come off. Then remove the screws on the back of the fan casing. You shouild be able to get to the fan, hold the fan and turn the spindle to the right to take off. If it would turn off, then you may have to lock the armature so it can't turn to move it. Then re-asemble in reverse.

you need to make sure the belt is on the roller correcty, make sure is at the red position when putting the part back on with the belt on the hook, push the pedal to highest (off the ground) position to ensure you put it on correctly, then turn the fixing clip thing to secure it, then once its on turn the panel around to green position, belt will be back on, once you get used to it you'll be ok,

The only source other than E-Bay that I am aware of is Kirby.
This is from their FAQ's:
Q. How can I obtain a replacement copy of an owner's manual?
A. For a copy of a manual, call 1-800-437-7170 or visit your nearest authorized Kirby distributorship.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
