Having problems with your Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Just picked up the vacuum - any idea the dates of production on a G4 Anniversary Edition?

Answers :

The 10 digit serial number on ALL G series Kirbys (G3, G4, G5, G6, Ultimate G, Diamond Edition and Sentria) is engraved into the aluminum on the side of the Kirby, right above where the cloth bag attaches to the machine. This serial number contains the EXACT manufacture date of the machine.
\015\012The first number in the serial number will be a 1, 2, 3 or 4 and pertains to the quarter of the year in which the machine was manufactured. The second and third number is the year of manufacture.
\015\012FOR EXAMPLE.... in the serial number 1071104984, the machine was manufactured in the first quarter of the year 2007.
\015\012The G4 models were manufactured from 1993-96.
\015\012My G4 80th Anniversary edition doesn't seem to fit this, however. It's 8941106700. I suspect it's got a replacement handle.
Ignore the first number. The second two indicate the year, the next two are the month, and the third two are the day. The last three are the order the machine finished assembly.

I just bought this vacuum at a second hand store. My girlfriend told me to grab it as it such a quailty product. How ever I can't find a model number or anything else. I need a manual please. Does it take bags? Do I need to replace the filter or just wash the one I have? It is black and silver, cannister. It also says big gary's vacuum system warehouse in surry British Columbia, Canada. It also says to use filter pow-r-nozzle 96. I have no idea of the year.

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush rotating. It does not happen hen I shut the roller brush off. The belt is fine. I cannot figure out what is wrong as there are no clogs, debris, or foreign objects stuck in the brush or in the belt. The noise seems to be the only issue. The vacuum picks up fine. It just doesn't sound right a

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air. It was like it was blowing dust around instead of picking it up. I checked the tubing and found that it was clogged with some paper and hair ***** etc.... So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I
