Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Kirby G5 pulls to the right and sutters when pushing forward
\015 Pulls to the right and sutters when pushing forward. Does anyone know what parts I need to replace?\015
First adjust the height of your brush. You will have to take the bottom plate off as you were changing a belt. There are 3 height adjustment settings located at the end caps marked 1,2, and 3. Take note of where it's at and try the other two to see what works best. If that does not work, go to your local Authorized Kirby dealer and have them install the softer brushed. Often this is required for berber carpet.
Adjust the height of your brush.

Lately, my Kirby Ultimate G has been acting funny. When I push it forward, it's fine, but when I pull it backward on the carpet, the light on the front flickers and the power flutters off an on. I thought it might be the rollers, so tonight I turned the machine over and pulled out the hair that was wrapped around the roller. However, that did not fix the problem. I should probably backtrack a little bit. In the past, I have had problems with the vacuum running over its own power cord.
The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be r ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Kirby Seems like you know alot about the Kirby. I know how to use my Sentria (unlike these other idiots) but I keep screwing up the shampoo tray assembly. The brush snaps into the tray just fine but the tray doesn't really stick to the head. It detaches when pushing and pulling the unit. And who knows where that cover goes? It say 'push here to open'

My Bissell Proheat 12 amp is hard to push forward(whether on or off). There is a loud clicking noise when pushing forward and it ''jumps'' up on every loud click. It's OK when pulling backwards, sprays and vacuums up water. Belt appears OK. Thanks

G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.
Sounds like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limi ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
Greetings - my Dyson DC41 animal vacuum seems to be having problems with the ball - the right side of the ball if you were to be standing behind the machine seems like it's tightening as it rolls forward, as it tightens its harder to push the machine forward. Any thoughts, any fix it ideas? Thank you.
Hello, I got a used Kirby Sentria. When I run the vaccum and push and pull on the handle, I can hearing a friction type noise. I got up close to the vaccum and it is not the wheels or roller. It is coming from the base of the handle. It's like it is pushing on something on the vaccum body and is creating the noise. Maybe transmission? Is this normal, or is it something I should be concerned about? Thanks for your help!

G5 Kirby. Works in Neutral fine. When Drive is engaged and I push forward, the wheels do not rotate forwards, however on the pullback stroke the wheels rotate backwards. What causes this? Something is clearly in the wrong position, so a diagram showing the correct position of the part that is affected would be useful.

When i am vacuuming my carpet....it sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet
This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.\015 ... Vacuums
