How do I **** the air out of a storage bag?

\015 I have storage bags that need to be put away, but I do not remember how to set my Kirby G-six to **** the air out of the bag.\015

Answers :

Facing the front of the machine,turn the belt lifter knob counterclockwise till it stops.Lift the headlight hood and unlatch the brushead from the machine.Place the large end of hose to machine,and lock it down.You are now ready to remove the air from the bags.
\015\012Note:Anytime you have to remove or replace the brushead,make the belt lifter knb the first thing you turn when removing,and the last thing you turn when reinstalling.It will save you alot of confusion in the process.

How do I configure my G4 Kirby to use the hose to **** air out of vaccuum storage bags?


You will need to use the extension tube, not the hose adapter. the adapter has an outside diameter that is too large. I'm assuming the bags that are used for storage are designed to store clothing,blankets and other linens. ... Vacuums

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. Thanks.

I have just replaced the bag in my miele and the indicator is showing that the bag is full. The air coming from the exhaust is hot and the machine is making a higher pitched sound as it does when the bag is full. When the hose is detached, the indicator registers as empty and there doesn't seem to be a blockage.

I have a Z345 Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner, from the 1970s probably, but not used much. I have lost the guide. I forgot to change the bag before it was full. Smoke started to come out - smelling of burnt paper, not rubber. So switched off. It did not blow the fuse, and may be OK. I wish to inspect it. How do I open it up? Alos I have an air filter and a motor filter for it. I have often changed the air filter on the top. How do I get at the motor filter, if there is one? Than

I have a new bag in, checked the hoses for clogs have the motor cover off showing motor runs. Problem is vacuum has no suction in hose area, cover off where bag is and the air blows out of filter. hoses are clean no blockage.


Have you checked the filter? Many vacuums have a filter under or behind the bag to keep dust and dirt out of the motor. If this gets clogged the motor can't get any suction. Also look for holes in the hose or in the small segment between hose and bag ... Vacuums

Oreck XL21 just will not work at all any more. Beater is clean - belt is fine. Fresh bag - inflates. Took the thing apart - checked for blockages at intake, bag entry, and the tube. It just doesn't vacuum anything. No suction at all for anything stronger than air. I'd say it doesn't ****, but that would be ironic. Are these known for just "quitting" after a while? We take it in for maintenance as recommended to replace filters, etc. Is there some miracle trick to make it work or sho


Did you make sure the brush turns freely? Even though it is clean, if it does not turn freely with the belt, it will not beat the carpet and pull debris up into the unit.\015\012\015\012Another (drastic?) thing to try would be to take the unit ... Vacuums

Eureka 4467AV overheats and shuts down after about 3 or 4 minutes of operation. I pulled all the filters to assure no blocked air flow. I assume the motor is not getting enough cooling air but i can't figure out why. checked bag for blockages as well as hoses. could the thermal protection have gone bad?

The hose works great, but the head of the vaccuum does not pick up anything !!! I checked every opening that may have been clogged, but nothing came up. When I hold my hand under the brush/roller, it seems to be putting out more air than intaking air. Particles "dance" on the carpet, but don't get "sucked up" into the vaccuum ? I have had the vaccuum only 1 year, so the brushes should not be a problem. I changed the bag, and checked the belt. The belt and brushes seem to be OK. ?

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated
