Another interesting topic! So I was looking at vintage Kirby stuff on eBay and happen to see something that nobody including me had never seen before. A clear Kirby lexan fan! Donít know what model it goes to but itís one of the older models. I find this interesting and pretty much donít know what to say. What do yíall think? Hereís the link.

I believe that is actually a Sanitaire fan which the seller has mistaken to be a Kirby fan.

There are no clear Kirby fans. That's a Eureka fan.

I thought wtf only eureka/sanitairre fans are clear. He has part number for it and everything trying to be official.

OK. I took a closer look of the fan and I can definitely see a big difference. Feel like Iíve been fooled! Lol

I actually messaged this seller about the fan not being Kirby a month ago.

Just look at the size of the center hole, it is half the diameter of a Kirby fan.

It may fit a Kirby. I bought a Kirby power switch new still in Kirby bag. It's same as a eureka vacuum. I didn't believe it but it was.
So China generic replica it might fit but I'm not going to buy it and see I have my newer sanitairre I'll try clear fan on one of my 3 dissambly Kirby's.

Sanitairre doesn't fit on a Kirby vacuum.
The sanitairre fan is oem.
