Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have taken apart my cleaner but I can not get to the inside of the housing where the fan is located. The metal will not pull apart from the black/grey plastic. Help please.
Here is a video

I'm assuming you've got the top off of the unit. (This will take a phillips screw driver) The spindle that you see actually comes off. It is more of a nut, if you will, holding the plastic fan in place. You'll need a 3/8 box wrench and a pair of vise grips. Put the wrench on the other end of the spindle just past the commutator. You'll see the spindle is not round at this point but has flat edges for the wrench. Then clamp the vise grips on the spindle next to the fan. Beware, it is reverse threaded. Mine came off rather easily. You can buy a new fan (with the spindle/nut thing and some sundry washers) from a local Kirby supplier. Mine wound up costing about $16.00.
