Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
I HAVE A KIRBY AND IT KEEPS BREAKING AND BURNING BELTS.
Hello, Check this guide to be sure that your brushroll is in correctly. Follow it step-by-step and it should help of your brushroll spins freely. If it doesn't, there are new brushrolls available through the links in the guide as well.
Another cause of this is that the sealed bearings on the ends of the beater-roller are gummed up. This makes it so the beater doesn't spin freely and thus the belt tends to slip. If the beater brush spins freely, then I would guess that you might be setting the brush too low when you are vacuuming and thus making it work too hard. The only easy solution is to buy a new beater roller (about $20). If you are anal, you can search for replacment roller bearings but Kirby doesn't sell them

Why does the belt keep breaking on my kirby

I have a kirby sentria. vacuumed up my son's headphones and immediately shut if off. took brush off, unwound headphones, put it back together. when i turned it back on, the belt snapped. so i went to vacuum place, got new belt, but when i put it on, with the green arrows lined up, it doesn't have much suction. with the red arrows lined up, it just smells like its burning and i don't want to break another belt! HELP!!
Take the front off the vacuum and check inside both the front portion and the canister for additonal clogs. Sometimes something will get caught in the impellor, causing the motor to overheat. Since there's little suction and the smell, I'd guess th ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum

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?

I heard that a class action lawsuit against Oreck Vacuum is being started because of all the problems customers are having with their vacuums. Does anyone know about this? My Oreck is only a couple of years old and keeps burning up belts. I took it in after only one week of usage when I started to notice white smoke coming out of it and the smell of burning rubber. I feel like I got the old run-around, when the service tech told me he couldn't find anything wrong (but replaced the burned up belt

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther
