\015\012
\015\012Hello,
\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012This is kind of a general question and I will try to explain the best I can. Most Kirby’s have a vacuum head and sometimes a shampoo head, the vacuum head is removable on most Kirby’s and the vac head comes off the front for a brushroll and belt change. When you vacuum and you go to adjust the vacuum head, raise the height adjustment all the way u to the top with your foot, then listen to the tone change, @ first you will hear air pulling thru and the brush has not hit the carpet as of yet, that is the sound the you are listening for, once the brushroll hits the carpet – there is a definite tone change and that is when you have it adjusted correctly, try to vacuum with it set that way, if it is picking up well – you’re OK, if not adjust if down one more click. Also remember to do a belt change every 4 to 6 months for good cleaning, change the bag more often because it will pup better with a new belt and bag, or if you don’t have a paper bag, take and scrape the inside of the cloth bag with the scraper provided in the small zipper section. Please refer to the owner’s manual or trouble shooting guide or to your local vacuum cleaner dealer or in the yellow pages, also you can use the Kirby factory or website listed below:

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

I want to use Kirby vacuum cleaner to dry a wet carpet. How do I do that. Which parts are required to do the drying?


You would have to hook the hose up to the place where the bag hooks on to, and i don't think you can do that. Also dont use it to **** up the water ( unless your using the shampoo attachment ) because you can ruin the machine that way. ... Vacuums

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet - HELP!!!! We're read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.


First things first. It's only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected und ... Vacuums

Oreck Belts Why do they smell badly and almost always break when being used for an extended period? I see Mr. Oreck in print, television and internet ads -- and he certainly carries himself as a credible person; a man you want to believe....But reading his biblliography -- he started his career (in this area as I know it) as a "Vacuum Cleaner Salesperson" for Whirlpool. Many vacuums brands - particularly those that are noit sold directly by retailers (Oreck, Kirby and others) use the commission-

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head. The suction is strong at the end of the hose (where you attach the telescopic attachment with vacuum head) Any ideas? Thanks, Irene

Smell/suction I have a Eureka Altima Model 2991 Type AVZ. I have suction when I use the power paw and attachments. I have all hoses clear.

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu
