Answers :

You will have to take most of the vacuum apart to replace your fan.
\015\012First; remove the handle assembly by pressing the button on the front of it near the base. Remove the bag unit by twisting the rear of the emptor away from the body, and remove the front nozzle assembly by rotating the belt removal part to the "off" position and flipping the latch at the top of the nozzle.
\015\012
\015\012There's a screw on the very back above the self propel select, and one on the top of the plastic where the cord attaches, removal of these will let you remove the rear plastic piece. Then there will be two more screws above the main power switch, and two on the front of the housing under the headlight. Remove the power cord, and then you can lift the rear housing from the main body.
\015\012Now you can remove the screws from the front of the fan housing; I believe there are five. Make sure you keep track which screws came from which position, because they are all different sizes.
\015\012To remove the front of the fan housing, put a flat-head screwdriver in the gap at the top to the side of the headlight assembly and pry it apart.
\015\012To get the motor pulley off you'll want to grip the pulley with a pair of vice grips, and use a wrench to hold on to the motor shaft in the rear of the machine. Look at the shaft that runs to the rear from the armature, and you should be able to locate a flat section which will allow you to grip it with a wrench... I do not recall the exact size, but there is a standard one that fits it perfectly. The pulley can then be removed. Note that it is reverse-threaded. Keep in mind that you will need to replace all the little plastic washers and rubber gaskets and things that are on the shaft with the fan. They are usually included with the Kirby fan kit, but if not make sure you find some before attempting the repair.
\015\012Before reassembly, you'll want to apply a thin layer of adhesive around the edge of the fan housing, making sure you don't glue the safety switch on the front into place.
\015\012
\015\012Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck.

I purchased the Shark Steam Mop less than a year ago and I have used it about 8 times and now it is not working. It will not steam.

It is still under warranty.
