Having problems with your Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Back wheels not turning.

\015 Self-propel is not working at all. Makes the vacuum very hard to move. It has never worked perfect. The salesman showed how it would basically move by itself in the drive position. It has never done that; however, it has always been easy to push until now.\015

Answers :

See if the pedal is set on D

Check if there is some resistance to move pedal from N to D and back - maybe pedal is broken...

See if handle slides back and forth a bit (maybe slide is rusted)

if everything is fine - Inspect primary drive belt. That will require to get inside the vacuum... See instructions HERE

If everything above is ok - you may need to replace a tech drive.

Good Luck

My Jacuzzi Tracker 4x just "stopped"..there is a nice strong flow of water going into it, but the wheels just aren't turning. I've tried the following to no avail: 1. blocked suction for a few seconds underwater with my hand (this has worked in past) 2. try to move front wheels back and forth (but they won't budge...back wheels do move on track though) Should I start taking it apart?

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

I have a Eureka Boss Power Plus and the beater bar is rolling, the belt is turning, but after vacuuming up around the litter box (not a lot of litter), when I turn the vacuum off, the litter, or even household dirt, falls out. When I hold the vacuum back to turn it off so that it doesn't fall on the floor, it's sitting in the cubby where the wheels are. The bag is empty, the hose is not plugged, the hose is securely fitted on both ends of the unit. This vacuum was purchased in July and is being

It worked OK for a time and then got hot.I was able to partially remove the motor for inspection.I found that the cooling impeller was not secured to the shaft,I tightened the set screws and reinstalled the motor.

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio

I have the same problem as discussed above. My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stops working while using it. The bottom feels hot when this happens. When it first occurred, I emptied the canister and even tried a different plug. It did not turn back on for over an hour. When it did turn back on, it would die again after about 3-5 minutes of use. I don't know what else to try. I have washed the secondary filters, let them air dry and replaced them and this did not help the problem. My friend,

My Bissell ProHeat 2x is pouring water out of the bottom anytime it's turned on. I had it in the shop for no water, took it back again for the same problem, took it back again because it had no suction, finally took it apart and found the problem with the suction and fixed it myself. Worked fine for a day and now it is constantly leaking water, if it's turned on, and is useless for anything except for making a mess.

Took the unit apart and discovered my heater had small pinholes in the metal and they had put in silicone, instead of a gasket, which didn't seal. So much for the place I took it to "saving" my heater for me. I repaired it myself by getting a few o ... Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum

Our dustbuster (dont' have model number with me-sorry) won't turn off when I pull back on the switch handle. I disassembled the unit and realize that the tab on the switch handle that pulls back on the internal switch handle to turn it off is not strong enough for its simple task. Does B&D have a proper replacement part?

If you can provide a model number, I can check availability of the switch and can either order it for you, or supply the B&D part number and you can order it from most local vacuum shops in your area or from Black & Decker direct online: ... Black & Decker 15.6 Volt DustBuster Vacuum

I sucked up a sock into the carpet attachment of my electrolux 3500 series and the carpet attachment cut off.

I want to open a Hoover S3825 Elite Cyclonic Vacuum to see if I can repair or replace the cord reel assembly. Currently the reel slowly draws the cord back into the canister once it is pulled out. I found the mounting screws under the rear wheels once I removed the hub but I do not know how to remove the rear wheels, everything is plastic. The front screws are under the front caster wheels and I think I need to take a screwdriver and pry off the little cylinder wheel to get to them by rotating
