Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

How to change the fan blade that is used for the suction on the vacuum cleaner?

Answers :

You will need to get a genuine fan kit form a service center, then elevate the vac and remove the carpet head. From the back of the housing there will be a series of screws facing forward into the front housing, several are counter sunk. Removing them will replace the front face of the housing. You should not have to pry.Look for partly hidden screws
The belt shaft is threaded, once removed pay attention to washer and spacer location in front and back of fan.
Grip the old fan by hand and the shaft with a set of vice grips or slid a long nail through the fan shaft hole to unscrew the shaft.
Installation is reverse order with the shaft and screws hand tight... Post back to say how you make out

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

Poor suction I have a hoover hush s5627 vacuum purchased about 4 years ago from Costco. It's suction power isn't so good anymore. I've checked all the lines & hoses and they're clear and I've changed the bag. I even disconnected the pipe from the vacuum unit and held my hand over the intake. While the machine roars like a jet engine the suction power just ain't like it used to be. What could possibly be the problem?

This vaccuum has a Fan Blade inside connected to the motor that spins to create the suction you feel. After a few years of use (and misuse) the blades on this (plastic) fan will be broken off, thus damaging the unit. These Fans are replaceable if yo ... Vacuums

I have a power drive baggless vacuum cleaner...it runs well, but suddenly it seems to have lost most of the suction coming through the hose and floor area. When I remove the dirt container, the suction below it seems strong. I have had it to repair twice--they have tuned it up and replaced all filters and belt. It still does not pick up well when I vacuum or use the hose. Can you help ?

There is something stopping it up,you will have to dissasemble the unit to find the blockage,this is the most likely problem. ... Hoover U6660-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

Bosch Vacuum Cleaner: I changed bag. Cleaned out all suction hose and hepa filters, however, my 1450 w 12 amp upright vacuum cleaner will die after five minute run - overheating. Please advise.

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced

There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum

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. My brush is spinning and belt is not broken (I opened it up and checked), but I have no suction when I turn it on to vacuum my living room carpet. I also have a burning smell to go with it after about 30 seconds. I've never had a problem with this vacuum cleaner before.

Ours started smelling too, and it seems that the plastic end on the roller brush was melting. In process of finding rollerbrush for it now ... Eureka 2971AV EZ Kleen Bagless Upright Vacuum

My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now. But suddenly, it has hardly any suction power and also, hot air seems to be coming out thru the vents on top and also thru the space that's normally used for blowing air OUT....the outlet with the retractable cover located close to the part where the power cable comes out of and retracts into. I've checked the filter and the hose and they are not clogged...I have also put in a new bag. Not keen to buy another vacuum cleaner u

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

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

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction. Fluff gets stuck in the hose and has to be manually removed. Suction power is very poor. I have washed the filter to remove the dust with no difference. Who do I contact in Brisbane to service or assess the problem further.

I have a Kenmore central vacuum cleaner model number c107 34601. We have emptied the bucket and shaken the filter out to clean it. There is a filter that is filthy so we shook it out into a bag but the cleaner still seems to not have great suction. I notice there is a similar cap to the outlets I plug the central vac hose into on the unit itself that doesn't power the nozzle when used. 1 - what is this for? 2 - Should I somehow remove the entire filter and if so - can you tell me step by step ho

My new Kenmoore Powermate 116 canister has poor suction. I have no pets and light dust. Its not picking up small particles on the wood floor with the floor attachment. When I put my hand to the suction it feels weak. Cleared hose and changed bag. Using again, same issues. This should not be happening with a new vacuum. Is it a bad design in the elbow joint of the hose? I want to return this!!!!
