Dust smell when running g4 kirby

\015 Been trying to figure out whay every time i run the vacuum it smells like a lot of the dust is escaping into the room, even with a new bag. i can't find a break anywhere. any ideas? thanks\015

Answers :

If you see mo dirt inside the cloth bag so it looks like the fill tube is in tact and yet it still stinks - Sometimes over the time outer cloth bag absorbs the smell and you have to wash it (or get the new one but washing it obviously is a lot cheaper alternative).
HERE you will find how to do it.
The dusty smell coming from my G4 finally drove me to search out the problem. As it turned out, the fill tube had cracked near the top of the mini emptor (the boot) and dust and crumbs were escaping from the tube and into the cloth bag. I tried to repair the split with duct tape and electrical tape, but to no avail. I finally gave up and ordered a new fill tube online for about $8. This took care of the problem, and the machine works like new with no more dusty smell.

I was vacuming with the hose only with my kirby generation 3 vacum and it suddenly made a different sound and smelled strong of burning. I immediately shut it off and unplugged it. It IS about 30 yrs old. Do you think it is worth taking in to pay someone to look at it or it just bit the dust?

It might be the belt and if it is it will be a sipmle fix. If it isn't I think It's time to bite the dust and buy new. You won't believe what you old vacuum was not sucking up and for what it would cost to repair vs buying new it would be about the s ... Vacuums

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.

It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

My Discovery 4210 Roomba will run normally for about 20 minutes on a smooth, wooden floor. It then begins the following sequence: run forward a few inches, turn in a tight counter-clockwise circle a few revolutions, stop, power off a few seconds, power up, repeat cycle from forward run. The sequence can be repeated seemingly endlessly if I don't turn off the power manually. I've replaced the motor, and led revolution sensor system on the left drive wheel.

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci
