Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

How do you get to the fan on the generation 3 kirby


Answers :

First remove the handle, next remove the screws attaching the cord, and switch trim plate. The small screw and knob on the handle pivot must be removed to remove the switch trim piece - insert a flat screwdriver into the small slot in the plastic and pop the trim off to expose the rear motor shell screws. Remove the four screws holding the upper motor shell in place to expose the fan housing screws. Remove the five screws holding the fan housing in place, noting their positions. Pry the fan housing off to expose the fan. Hold the fan in place while turning the belt pulley CLOCKWISE to remove it. If the armature turns, it must be held in place with an open end wrench (about 9mm). There are flat spots on the armature just in front of the commutator bars. Pull or pry the fan and associated washer off the armature shaft. After replacing the fan and pulley, put a bead of silicon sealant on the fan housing and replace all parts in reverse order of removing.

I have a Kirby Generation 3. The handle spring assembly is broke, so I took it apart to get a part number. Can you tell me if there is a cross reference or something on these parts. I am unable to find a part with the same number that is located on the part I took off. The number on this spring assembly shows Kirby HA-670289B K-1. Any help finding this part is appreciated.
