I would suggest taking it to a vacuum repair place to do this. There are just too many screws and seals that you have to break and reseal for someone who doesn't know what they're doing. However, if you still want to do this yourself, I have a fan kit and will be happy to send you one. You may call us at 1-866-509-1952. Thanks

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.

Im trying to replace a fan on a simplicity freedom f3300 vacum. HOW DOES THE OLD FAN COME OFF? It seems to be pressed on but I dont want to brake anything.


Assuming you have the motor out of the fan housings, check to see if you can move the fan around clockwise/counter-clockwise. If the fan is not moveable, the fan has probably melted to the motor housing. Replacing the motor is recommended as the plastic motor housing under the fan is probably damaged/melted. It could still be fixed but there is a possibility of damaging the housing. If after removing the fan following the directions below be sure to remove/trim any melted plastic away from housing before replacing fan. Not trimming the plastic could result in your new fan melting again to the housing when the machine is turned on. If you have an older model pay careful attention to the carbon brush area, if there are plastic posts holding the carbon brush springs, these are easy to break.

If the fan is movable, remove the nut and washers from fan. Use two large flat head screwdrivers and place them opposite of each other under the bottom lip of the fan between the fan and motor housing. (it might be a little easier if you have an extra pair of hands to hold the motor). With the flat heads in place, push the handles of the flatheads toward the side of the motor where the belt shaft is. If the fan does not pop off rotate the position of the screwdrivers and try again. Pay close attention that the fan washer is installed before replacing your new fan. after installing the new fan, rotate it several times making sure it isn't rubbing anywhere.

If you need any further help feel free to contact me.

Oreck xl 9100 how to replace the fan


Hi,
I just replaced the fan (plastic) on an XL9100. I assume you got the bottom plate off (5 screws).

Undo the single screw holding the suction housing in place.

Remove the two screws holding the motor in place and gently lift the assemble up, being careful not to stress the wires. The motor and fan assembly should now be exposed. If the nut holdling fan in place is removed, the whole fan should slide right off. If it does not, try a little WD-40 on the shaft and wiggle and move from side to side. (I slipped a small drill bit between the motor fan (motor cooling fan) to prevent the shaft from turning when you remove the nut.) Be sure you turn the nut counter-clockwise to remove it.

You should now have the fan off. Reverse the procedure to place the new fan - following the directions carefully as some assemblies need a washer and "feathered" washer on the top.

Assuming everything went well, it should work.

My 9100 sucked a magnetic bearing and trashed the metal fan to where suction was weak. The new fan works great.

Cheers

Fan and bearing replacement on a Kirby G6


if you run your vac to long after the fan is broke it will cause excessive vibration and the bearings can go out. in almost all cases i replace the fan only. most of the time if you have a bad bearing the vac will make a grinding noise. you can also tell a bad bearing by grabbing the belt pulley on the end of the fan and pull up and down if it moves alot then your bearing is also bad. you can get the bearings separate witout ordering the armature assy. when talking of replacing any of these parts besides the fan i would advise you to take your vac to your local repairman. working on motor parts of a kirby can get pretty involved. to replace the fan first take the housing off where your belt and brushroll are. you should then see 5 screws on the front of your kirby. remove all 5 screws. then remove the handle. at the very bottom of your handle you will see a piece that allows you to move the handle, on the back side of this you need to push in with your thumb and the handle should pull off. then you should see a plastic piece directly below that snaps into the top housing. remove the 2 screws from this. one where the cord boot is and one above your power drive neutral/drive lever. then under this plastic piece is 2 more screws on your top housing. when these are out your housing should pull off. if not then remove the bottom plastic housing of your outer bag. then go back and look at the front again and you will find since removing the top housing you have exposed 2 more screws in the front fan cover housing that also need to come out. after this pry this housing off and you should be looking directly at the fan. grab fan with pliers in one hand and with the other hand apply pliers to the silver belt pulley and turn this piece clockwise. it should unscrew and then you can pull your bad fan off and attach the new one. i hope this helps and remember its not as hard as i probably made it sound. good luck!!!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 different models of the boss by Eureka – there is a standard old style upright that the belt that the belt would unscrew from the bottom of the motor and you would have to remove the top of the vacuum cover to remove the main motor and gasket assm, and then the fan has a reverse thread on the plastic fan and you would unscrew the fan after removing the belt pulley. Then you would screw on the new fan, belt pulley, replace the gasket and re-install the motor. If you have a new style with a side mount motor you would remove the top cover, the motor would be in there sideways, un-screw the motor, remove the silver tape around the fan housing and un-screw the fan housing – same as above un-screw the fan from the motor, there is a nut on the end of the fan holding that on – (remember, the fan has a reverse thread) re-install the fan. Then the fan housing, replace the silver tape, and then screw down the motor and replace the top cover, then you can test. As always free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area in the yellow pages or contact your Eureka factory manufacturer listed below:

FAN


Take off the bottom plate, remove the screws for the motor and fan chamber, remove motor from fan housing, remove the nut for the fan. You may have to lock down the armature if the nut is too tight. Replace fan and reinstall motor into the fan housing and reinstall.
