Having problems with your Kirby Heritage II Vacuum ?

How do I get the case apart on my Kirby Heritage II (2HD) to replace the fan impeller? I can only find 3 screws holding it and there seems to be more.


Answers :

From the rear, there are 3 screws on right and one on the lower left. There is 1 more on the front at the top just under the lamp.
You will also need to remove the safety switch - the plastic thing down and just right of the front screw. Take out the 2 screws. Pull the switch gently away from the case and try to get a look at how it's put together.
There is a bent rod inside with a plastic 'bar' holding it in. The flat end of the rod is on top - the round end at the bottom goes into a loop on a metal strip that is sticking out from the motor housing. By lifting up and wiggling, the rod will come out of the loop. Often, the plastic bar will come out and rod will just fall out. Just put the rod and the plastic bar back together (this is why you looked at it before). I tape the bar in place with Scotch tape or any thin tape and leave it that way.
The fan housing is sealed with caulking (or whatever the last person to service it used). A few raps on the side of the case with rubber mallet and/or sticking a thin putty knife in the joint should do.
You will need to scrape the joint clean and reseal it when you're done or it will blow dust like mad. Any caulking or gasket sealer will do. Just don't use high strength adhesive if you ever want to take it apart again without dynamite.
Btw, the fan pulley is a left-hand thread.

Hoover Wind Tunnel U6458-900 Self Propel doesn't work - via other expert advice here for other models of Hoover - I'm thinking it is the actuator that needs to be replaced as I can see the cable does not connect to anything on the bottom.

Bisell Healthy home vacuum stopped working. The troubleshooting guide said there could be a problem in the connection at the handle. None of the phillips screwdrivers we have seem to work in removing the screw that holds the handle to the vacuum. What size phillips screw driver should we be using? If the screw is stripped, how can we get it out to replace it since it is not easily accessible in the handle?


You should use a p2 size phillips. there is only one screw right in the center that holds the handle assy on. frequently that screw backs out and allows the handle to slide back and loose connection. make sure the handle is tightly pressed in and the ... Vacuums

I have a Kirby Heritage II Turbo and I need a user's manual, but can't find one anywhere. I have to replace the fill tube in the bag and can see the cable tie on top that holds it in place, but don't know how it's attached to the mini-emtor. If I can't replace the fill tube, will tape fix it? If I just taped it; will it hold? Thanks.


Taping usually just causes a mess. The mini-emptor has coarse threads on it that the fill tube screws on to. Occasionally there is a cable tie on the bottom which is not really necessary. If you cut the tube near the bottom, you can get hold of it's ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-


Hi Hugh. The 2100 has a rocker switch under neath the button. it is probably broken, or the button has a worn detent spring. If you would like, I could send you a switch kit with the rocker, button, and detent spring enclosed for around 20 dollars ... Vacuums

My Dyson DC25 got stuck and wouldn't return to the upright position, I figured out that one side had jumped the track and gotten stuck in the square hole below the track. I did not want to break the plastic to force it back, so I removed the screw on the right side that was holding the kick stand on and removed the kick stand, also a spring thing came out.
