I have my mom's old Kirby Classic 1-CR its been in my garage. I just bought a new handle, brush roll, belt, bulb.
I want to polish it. I've seen the sites of how to do it.
However want some advice. I hear a 4 bristle brush is better than the original.
Also it runs but howls a little. The front fan is able to be moved by hand so I assume it needs new bearings. Is there anywhere that describes how to do that.
Additionally the original metal fan has a couple of broken teeth. Is the lexan fan as good or the non-original plastic or are there metal fans available.
I have been inspired by what I have seen here. I know the Classic 1-CR is kind of dowdy, with the brown trim and all, but I am really looking forward to getting her running right and looking good!
No Pic yet, i have all the exterior stuff taken off.
