Hi marilynh57....
Try removing the fan blades and putting them into different positions.
This will sometimes solve your wobbling problem as some fan blades are heavier than others and this causes the wobble you experiance.

Replace fan

Replacing a broken fan in a Kirby is not an easy job. You have to take off the handle, the top cover, the front piece covering the fan and then stick a wrench down onto the motor shaft to hold the shaft tight while you stick an awl or small screwdriver into the hole on the spindle sticking out the front of the vacuum. Turn the spindle to remove it so you can remove the fan. Install the new fan and reassemble the vacuum.

How to assemble the hawaiian breeze oscillating floor fan

I cannot find exact instructions but I did find a general guide to assembly. they are usually very easy to assemble.

A standing fan is a portable fan that has a set of three oscillating blades on a long neck. The neck, also called the pole or the leg, is mounted on the floor. Standing fans have evolved from their origins as noisy accessories that blew away papers in their vicinity to silent fans whose direction can be controlled remotely. When placed at a convenient location, a standing fan can distribute air evenly to the entire room. Its speed can be controlled, and many standing fans can be programmed to stop at a set time.

  1. Installation Requirements
    • The only requirement for installing a standing fan is making sure it is near a power source. The entire unit can be assembled manually with only a screwdriver. A single standing fan, either an oscillating or pedestal fan, is very simple to assemble for basic home use.
    Pole and Base
    • The first step is to lay the parts on a floor. Then assemble the pole on the base of the stand. This is very simple, because the grooves for the screws are already drilled, so the screws just need to be inserted and screwed in. Screwing the pole into the base of the fan is required on some models; on others, the pole and the base are molded together and no screws are needed.
    Motor and Fan Installation
    • One some fans, you have to install the motor and oscillating arm to the pole. This again is done by screwing screws into predrilled holes. Grooves for long screws are at the top end of the pole, where they attach to the motor of the fan. Once the motor is placed on the top of the pole, insert the screws in the predrilled holes and tighten the screws. The next step is to wire the three blades. This is done by taking the wires from the motor and joining them to the sockets in the pole. This finishes the assembly procedure.
      To turn the fan on, ensure that the wires fit securely together. A loose connection cannot not only hamper the performance of the fan, it can also lead to problems such as electrical shocks or burning wires.

I hope this helps

good luck

Burshes will not spin, filter is clean

Drive belt missing or not properly installed on motor or brush/beater? Perhaps foreign matter caught in ends of beater brush that are holding the brush tightly in place. Clean the debris away and hit with a little WD40, but not much. Make sure it turns freely by hand prior to putting it back into place. If the belt is loose, make sure it is replaced with the proper belt and installed correctly.

No manual with my fan, trying to put the fan up, please advise

Kind of hard to help you with this little information you have provided, but this is what I would do. FIRST and most importantly, you MUST use an approved box hanger to hold the (I am assuming a ceiling fan) fan to the electrical box for connection. BE SURE THE POWER SOURCE TO BE USED IS TURNED OFF!!!!!! Determine the power wires for the fan unit (most likely a black, white and green wire) and, observing the proper polarity, connect to the house wiring. Make sure you are using an equipment ground to the fan. This is usually a bare or green wire. If these instructions are not clear to you, you may want to have a professional install the unit. You should also check with your local municipality about the need for a permit to do this installation.

The little fan disc came off the top spleened motor shaft. Does it make a difference which side is facing down when I put it back on?

As long as the blades of the fan are flat (not curved) it doesn't matter. I'd be more concerned that the fan will probably come off again. Unless it's one that's held on by a screw it's just a push-fit and, having come loose once, it will never be a tight fit again. Good luck anyway!

Changing belt on u5063-930

ok its fairly simple the belt you need is 38528-040. Start by first removing the little slide button from the height adjustment switch. just pull strait up and it will pop off. it will need to be out of the way. turn over the vacuum and there will be 2 spring clips that release the bottom cover and give you access to the brushroll. now you must remove the top cover. there are 4 clips, 2 on each side. Use a flat head screw driver to pry one clip at a time, it should pop fairly easy. now that you have all the clips free release the handle assy and the hood will lift off. inspect brushroll for wear and free rotation. if its bad replace it. now install the belt on the brushroll first, install brushroll and pass belt through belt channel. Stretch belt with your hands until you successfully get it on the motor shaft. (Its supposed to be pretty tight i guarantee its the propper belt) rotate brushroll to properly align belt then snap top cover, and bottom brushroll cover back in place and dont forget to put the small button back on top of the hood.

How do I properly remove the fan from an Oreck XL9200s upright vacuum? It looks all chewed and beat up.

You will need to grip the motor shaft with a vise grip or similar with a pad underneath so as not to score the shaft , which in tun would damage the belt.
A piece of tire tube or leather will help. The fan is threaded and will rotate off opposite its normal rotation. A damaged or chewed fan will throw the vac out of balance. In a tight spot you could carefully file any frayed leading edges as if to true the fan, but a worn fan will reduce suction as well. good work spotting this . Tighten the new fan hand tight, snug
