Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Fan replacement gone bad!

\015 I tried to replace my fan, but I stripped out the spot where you put the wrench on the motor armature. Once I knew that was ruined, I put vice grips on it just to remove it, but it still wouldn't come off! I know I have to replace the motor armature now, but I still can't get the front shaft to unscrew. BTW, I'm turning it to the right.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

I take it the armature is not moving at all when you are turning the pulley(to the right, is right). You may have to pull the motor asm. out, remove the 4 scres and nuts off of the front bearing plate and pull it out along with the armature. I can't rmember if there is enough romm after pulling it out, from the inside to cut the shaft off with a hack saw. It is either that or replace the front bearing plate along with the armature.

Hi., If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, I have a Flair 3055 ventalation system in my house and over the last five years two fan motors have gone bad. it has been mickey moused together by a local repair man, and as of last week, it has died again. At 4-5 hundred a pop I would like to fix it myself, can anyone suggest a good replacement motor that will fit and work. My honey has breading problems and at this time of year, every penny is allocated, so time is of the essence. t


Hello George, Sorry about your predicament. Various fans are available for your unit but since you say the unit has been mickey moused together adjustments must have been made to the fan seating and system therefore if you order any particular fan th ... Vacuums

The bearing mounted gear/cutter assembly at the bottom of my 6 month old GE 169188 blender has gone bad; it's very loose and leaks fluid. The part is easily replaced. Only problem is that I can't find the part anywhere I've looked online. What is the deal? Why dont they make such a simple part available for a nearly new cheap appliance????

I was changing a light bulb with one of those metal extension rods that unscrew and screw back in the replacement bulbs. It evidently didn't seat correctly and pulled off the bulb and created a quick "poof" type electrical short. I have switched out that bad bulb with a new one and can't get either the fan or lights to work. There doesn't appear to be a reset switch. I also swirched out the wall switch to see if that would make a difference and it does not. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreci

I need to purchase new blades for our 52" Jericho IV ceiling fan, Model 166315. I went to home depot in Harrisville, UT and they said that we would have to contact you and they didn't have ANY replacement fan blades in stock. HOW COULD THAT BE WHEN THEY HAVE HAMPTON BAY FANS ALL OVER THEIR LIGHTING SECTION? What kind of a business are you running when one can't get replacement parts? Our fan is making noise and I want to replace the blades. How hard can that be? By-the- way; I hope you no

Kirby G3 made loud noise when running. Sprayed silicon in fan thinking it might be a bearing. Found a coin and nail in fan and removed. Tha vacuum would not turn on. Replaced switch and brushes. Still nothing. Did the silicon spray do something?


No - the silicon is an insulating material and would have no effect on the electrics of the vacuum. Most likely you have a bad connection - dismantle the vacuum again and check the wiring and the motor with an ohmmeter. Be very attentive with the bru ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have a 2 fluorescent light fixture in my bathroom. The right side light quit working. I took the starter out of the left side and put it in the right and it worked. Starter, right? I bought a package of 2 Leviton starters FS 2 15w. They didn't work. Thinking bad, I returned it for another package. Still not working. The original starter is a Sylvania FS 2. Is it possible to have FOUR bad "new" starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No


It is not likely that you had 4 bad starters.I assume you have more modern lights in it too(not 30 yrs old).Here is a link to Sylvania.It may be just that it requires certain something(who knows what)that only Sylvania has.It seems strange because th ... Vacuums

I have a Hampton Bay Midili fan which I just installed about a month ago and it was working fine. A few days ago when I flipped the switch on the light flickered on and off consistently until I turned the switch off. The remote also stopped working to control the fan and light. Since this model only can be controlled by the remote I am worried I will have to replace the remote already after only 1 month!
