Having problems with your Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Bobbing up and down?

\015 Hello! My stepmother's G5 bobs up and down when pushed certain directions on the carpet. She has tried to adjust the height when this happens, but it's as though the highest height keeps this from happening. Any suggestions?\015\012\015\012Thank you!\015

Answers :

Its more than likely the pile of the carpet is a little tighter in some areas of the carpet than it is in others. and, then you have to concider the grain of the carpet.

I replaced the powerhead drive belt. Now (2 times) while vacuuming the powerhead motor appears to run backwards. Because the metal pully which has left hand threads on it will backout / unscrew it self. Prior to this belt rerplacement it functioned properly. Thank You Bob

Bosch canister vac BSG81313. Took cover off to remove lots of hair, dirt etc from running without bag in place. Everything went back together OK, but cord reel spring went zip when cover was removed. How do I rewind the spring so there is tension when the cord is pulled out ? Wound cord back onto reel, but reel just clicks ever revolution etc...no tension when cord is pulled out of vac. Bob


The spring inside the hub of the cord wheel has escaped from the locking tab. You must completely dismantle the vacuum to access the cord wheel - take it out, reattach the spring and reassemble the unit. All you need is a phillips screwdriver, a pai ... Vacuums
