Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Attachment which one do i need to blower


Answers :

The hose actually attaches directly to the hole where the bag was. There is no other attachment that the hose needs to connect to. The thing that you put on the front is called the intake guard.

Not sure what these parts are officially called, but...
There is a sort of blank cap that replaces the floor attachments.  It has a plastic grill front to keep fingers etc out of the input while blowing.  Then, the bag unscrews, unlocks with a partial turn counterclockwise, and PULL.  Then there is an attachment that replaces the bag holder and the hose fits on this attachment.
That's it.  Now the input is shielded, and the output air comes out the hose.  If you want, you can also take the upright handle off and put the small handle on to hand hold the body of the machine while blowing. One safety issue - the holes in cap on the input side are certainly large enough for sand or small debris to pass through it.  This debris would then be ejected out the blower side at high speed.

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

I have an old Shop Vac model 3331.5. This is a 12 gallon 1.5 hight peak shop vac with a detachable blower. After many years I decided to use the blower feature, but have lost the lost the manual. Question; how do I attach the hoses to the blower? The motor has that cap on it the direct the flow of air in one direction and the wide hoses do not fit over it. I may be missing a part, but I would think the directional cap would have to come off anyway.


Remove the cap that directs the air and insert the hose in there. ... Vacuums

I want to brush the pile up on my carpet do I need a special attachment to do this??. I have shampood it and it still seems a bit flat. When I shampood no water/foam filled up in the front tray???I am sure I had attached everything correctly. The only thing I can think of is when I attach the brush and tray to the front of the machine, do I turn the handle back to the right way up, or do I leave it upside down, this is the one that picks up the belt.

I have a Kirby Heritage II Turbo and I need a user's manual, but can't find one anywhere. I have to replace the fill tube in the bag and can see the cable tie on top that holds it in place, but don't know how it's attached to the mini-emtor. If I can't replace the fill tube, will tape fix it? If I just taped it; will it hold? Thanks.

A friend who bought a multimaster less than a year ago has had his start a loud 'clattering', dry, noise, and the gearbox started to get hot. The output shaft now has about the same amount of slop as the total movement should be. It is one of the quick attach type. I bought one of the allen key attach type, and have found in the past with various 'name brand' tools, drills, angle grinders etc that they usually use a 'dry' type grease which soon throws off the necessary parts and they run dry u
