You might want to just buy the actual Kirby fan kit, which includes; a Kirby fan, a fan shaft and washers.

There are 2 different Kirby fans available and there seems to be a few part #'s out there. Both fans look the same so you need to pay attention.

Once size fan fits the newer Kirby vacuum cleaners, including the Ultimate G, Sentria, G6, G5, G4 and the G3.

The other size fan Kirby Tradition, Legend, and Heritage Fan 516, 517, 518, 519, 560, 561, 562, VII, D50, D80, 1CR, 1CB, 2CB, 3CB, 1HD Heritage, 2HD Heritage, Legend and Legend II.

How can you tell the difference. Every store we checked listed at least some of the vacuums that each fan fit. Being aware that there are 2 different fans that look very similar will prevent you from just assuming the fan in a picture at an online vacuum store is the right one.

Kirby Vacuum Cords

You should inspect your vacuum cord whenever you are wrapping it back up as you are putting your vacuum away. It is important that the cord does not have any bare wire exposed. This could occur if you run the cord over while you are operating your vacuum. If you run over the cord and notice any exposed wire, unplug the vacuum cleaner and stop using it immediately.

Kirby vacuum cords are extremely easy to replace. They plug into the bottom area of your Kirby vacuum. The vacuum does not need to come apart. Most vacuum cleaner shops will not even repair a vacuum that has a damaged cord unless the owner agrees to replace the cord. It is unsafe and very easy to remedy. This is not a repair that requires a vacuum professional.

Below is a list of Kirby vacuum cleaner models and the Kirby part # of the cord that is designed to fit that specific Kirby vacuum cleaner:

505 and D50 - 192062
D80 - 192067

Kirby Vacuum Bags

Some Kirby vacuum bags will fit more than one particular Kirby Vacuum Cleaner. Kirby Style 1, Style 2, and Kirby Style F bags are all designed to only fit specific Kirby vacuums. Kirby Style 3, G3, G4, G5, G6, Diamond Edition, Ultimate G and Sentria bags for Kirby vacuums made before 2009 are all the same size. The difference is Kirby has improved the filtration abilities of the replacement bags over time. If you have a Kirby vacuum that uses a Kirby G3 bag for example you could use a Kirby G6 bag which has better hepa filtration.
