SOURCE: Kirby generation 3 fan

You have to take off the top cover, then the handle pivot. Look down at the back of the armature you will see that it has a flat spot, you use a small vise grips or pliers to hold it, turn the belt pulley to the right if I remember right and turn the pulley off. If it won't come free, use a couple of flat blade screwdrivers and pry up to pop the fan off. Then put it all back together.

How do I convert a kirby ultimate G from 110V to 220V


You can't. The Kirby draws too many amps for a step down transformer.

Ask Kirby direct if they can convert your head to 220V. click Support - Contact

The brush on my kirby won't turn


It may have something caught in the roller mechanism if not the belt that drives the roller may have broken or slipped off. If the problem is neither of these then the motor that drives the belt to drive the roller may have failed, Please take to an authorized service centre and have it repaired or replaced if it does not cost more than a new vacuum if it is going to cost more than a new vacuum then discard that machine and purchase a new one. I hope this helps.

The carbon brushes in your motor are worn out and "sparking" against the motor armature. DO NOT operate the vacuum in this condition or you may damage the armature so badly it will need replacement. Most vacuum dealers can replace the carbon brushes and resurface the armature. This should cost $40 to $50. If you need a new armature you are looking at $100 or more.

No power


This COULD be the cord. I had a cat chew my cord and so I had to take it in to a Kirby dealer and have it replaced and it worked fine after that. Another reason could be that the motor needs rehauling. I also had to have this done once and it cost me around $69.00 , I believe. But my Kirby of course was 10 times that so it was worth it.

Vibrating and noisy Kirby


Power off the vacuum.

Unplug the power cord from the wall.

Remove the head or hose attachment.

Look at the fan and make sure all the fins on the fan are there.

If part of one or more is missing it will cause the fan to wobble and shake.
