Question about Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
>I have a Classic omega but the closest model that you list to it is probably the Kirby Heritage model
>how do i replace the fan blade hub on the Omega Classic 1-CB?
>I'm able to get to both ends of the fan shaft but can't figure out how to keep it from turning while I try to unscrew the long retaining bolt that also drives the belt.
>The part that I can't figure out is how to grasp the armature side without damaging it.
>Is there a special tool or do I just stick the blade of a screw driver into the gaps that run along the armature?
>thanks ,email email@example.com
I resolved the problem .I found a way to hold the armature shaft still while I unscrewed the pulley drive nut ,which must be removed in order to remove the vacuum fan.
> There probably is a special tool somewhere that would fit over the armature ( the metal part that spins on the shaft of the motor inside the stature) to hold it still ,but since it was suspiciously omitted from the rest of the fan blade parts ,I had to fabricate one myself.
>I happen to have three ,steel blade ,broad paint scrappers which were about 2 to 3 inches wide and thin enough so there blades fitted nicely into the groves that run the length of the armature without damaging it, as would be the case with a narrower screw driver blade .
>Bracing the handles of the 3 scrapper blades in a slot that was in the side of the case ,which was probaby its' intented purpose, held the armature shaft still while I unscrewed the fan nut which happened to have a reverse thread.( turns clockwise to loosen) .
>It unscrewed with ease. Problem solved!
