Having problems with your Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Kirby Sentria doesn't pick up visible dirt

\015 My Sentria obviously has suction - if I tilt the head up, the carpet comes with it. However, it doesn't pick up even small tufts of dog hair, small bits of yarn, bits of vegetation. The carpet underneath looks cleaner - but there's still stuff on it. Surely I shouldn't have to pick that up by hand?I am using it on a low-pile area rug with head in position 1 or 2.Also, how do you remove the bag? I know to rotate the bag at the top, but gentle or otherwise, the cardboard bends but the bag doesn't budge,\015

To double check if the brush is rotating, there is a green led light on the top right of the power head. If the light illuminates the brush is rotating, which also means the blower is working. As long as the bag is clean, there are no obstructions in air flow and the brush is rotating the vacuum should be working fine. If the brush is not rotating the belt is either broken or not engaged. It sounds like the brush is not rotating, which is a very easy fix.

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

For the first time, I tried using my Kirby Sentria shampoo attachment. I've lost the manual but found instructions online for making the swap from regular vac to shampoo-er and got it all assembled. The foam laid down just fine, however, when I run the vac back over the foam to pick it up, there is not a stitch of water showing up in the tray. First I thought maybe it was bc I hadn't put that much of the foam/water onto the carpet, but 12 hours later, the carpet is still wet in spots. Clearly

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.
