Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

On the rear of the G5D Kirby there is 2 levers that mash with your foot , one is grey and marked with an "N" the other is green and marked "D", what is its purpose

Answers :


"D" is for Drive, "N" is for Neutral. You cannot use the vacuum or even roll it into another room until the D is depressed. I believe Neutral is for bag and filter changes, repairs, etc. My thought is that it is designed that way so you can vacuum stairs without having it roll off the step......

So, if you run into the problem sometime that it won't roll, be sure the D is pressed.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

I have White Speedylock Serger, model 1500 that will not work when I press the foot pedal. I thought it might be the pedal, so I ordered one on-line, but the new one does not make it work either. I have checked the needle and it is fine, not loose or broken. The presser foot is fine also.

Hi There I have got a Kirby 2 HG vaccum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from. I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

I need to change out the short hose on the underside of my older Dyson DC 07 Animal (Light Purple). It is the one less than a foot long on the underside which is attached on one end to the main body of the vacuum(I was able to remove this one) and the top of the upper soleplate. The latter one seems to be glued or otherwise permanently attached.Any assistance you could give me on this would be greatly appreciated....Thanks

Hello Cynthia,\015\012\015\012It's not glued, but it can be a little difficult to remove. You need to twist and pull at the same time and it should pull off. If it's being stubborn, squirt a little bit of WD40 / penetrating fluid where th ... Vacuums

Kirby Sentria I bought my kirby sentria just before we were to move house and although I have the instructions somewhere, they will be boxed up and I so want to clean the carpets before I move. Problem is that I don't know whether the belt should be on or off when using the big silver front with the Kirby insignia on it. I know that the green light should come on when it is working properly and it does not, so I am doing something wrong. I can attach the attachments no problem but I want to use

I have the IROBOT discovery that just got a new battery. IT ran great! As the battery was dying, I put it into the home base. The "brick" is green, the home base has two green lights and the on/off pulsates red. It never charges though. Eventually the red light stops pulsating. Customer service said to reset it, clean the metal, and nothing works! They told me to just buy another one. The problem is that I know it was working! Help!

The best thing that you can do is take the charger into somewhere that can test it for the proper output voltage. It should be somewhere very close to 22 volts with no fluctuation. The charger is the easiest thing to test in this case. ... iRobot Roomba 4210 Bagless Robotic Vacuum

Hi, this is our third Dyson DC-16.. the Trigger was shorting out on the first two.. Now we have the third one for about a year.. on charge when not using it.. don't use it every day, but for quick pickups only.. Just how long should the battery last?
