Kirby Heritage II Vacuum\015 I have a Kirby Heritage II that has stopped working (does not run at all). After disassembly I think one of the carbon brushes has worn down. While I have it disassembled, I would also like to replace the bearings; but, I can't figure out how to get the armature off. I have it torn down so that the armature is on one side of the motor casting and the fan is connected on the other side of the motor casting but I can't see how to get them apart.\015

ANSWER : The armature that holds the fan on is reverse threaded. It turns to the right to remove it.

Carbon Brushes wearing out quickly on Kirby Heritage II
ANSWER : 4 possible reasons.
1 – one or both bearings are worn so armature (rotating part) wobbles as it is spinning and cause motor brushes to wear fast. Solution – change bearings too.
2 – Whoever replaced brushes – did not use some brush seating sticks to make cmutator smother and contour brushes to the shape of the comutator (not likely). Solution – appropriately install new set of brushes.
3 – Comutator is so warped that seating sticks do not help anymore – solution – new armature or turn the old armature.
4 – The fact that ONLY ONE brush was worn may mean that there is something wrong with the brush or housing. Maybe it could not move freely within the housing? I think this may be most likely cause it it may be a combination of all 4.Is it worth to fix? Hmm depends how much will it be. If this is 100+ – I’d say get newer Kirby for 300 ad enjoy the tech drive (Heritage does not have tech drive so it is much harder to vacuum with than the newer models)
