Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
In order to replace the fan you will buy a 2 or three piece lexan fan kit containing the fan a spacer and shaft.
You must remove the carpet head and then looking from the back of the machine you will find a series of philips screws on the outer edge of the fan housing facing towards the front, several of which may be partly covered by the motor housing. You will remove the forward facing screws to allow the housing to separate and reveal the fan.
If you are lucky there will be a sideways hole through the impeller shaft allowing you to slip a nail through to help twist the saft to unscrew it while holding the fan .
The shaft will turn off revealing a threaded motor shaft with spacers which the broken fan will slide off revealing a second spacer at the back . Be sure to replace these spacers in the same order when re-assembling the unit. Secure the shaft hand tight. Post back to advise if you need further help
