Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Kirby G3 Why is my Kirby G3 Blowing air and not sucking?


Answers :

Take the front of the kirby off (the part that has the brush roller in it) and look in the big hole where the fan impeller is. Most likely this plastic part is cracked and needs to be replaced. Just turn the metal rod sticking out of the hole and the outer ring with the fan blades on it will be cracked off of the inner piece. It is a cheap part (usually $12-$15) but getting to it is not for the mechanically disadvantaged.
Its probably clogged change the bag, you can also remove the cloth bag unit by holding on the bottom of it and pulling the large end away from the machine to see if theres any thing stuck in the bag tube and the hole that it sits on also check the brush area as well
