Having problems with your Kirby Heritage II Vacuum ?

Using accessories on a Kirby Heritage 84

\015 I bought a Kirby Heritage 84 from craigslist. It works great when I use it as a vacuum, but when I attach the hose or any other accesory it won't turn on. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

My guess with your kirby is the safety switch on the right side of your vacuum is not being pressed down, are you sure you have the right model of hose? any Heritage 1 2 or Legend 2 can work with it since they all have the same switch. your carpet head is working from the sound of it so either it's just that the high speed switch (being pressed fully down) doesn't work or you are not using the right type of hose (or the piece that engages the switch could be broken off

It's been awhile since I have used my shampoo system on my Ultimate G series Kirby. Well, as instructed I took it apart and cleaned it. Now I can?t figure out where to put the ?screen cap? and ?sponge filter?. I have my manual in front of me and the only place it shows the filter and sponge (page 35 in the manual) is when it?s been taken apart to clean. It doesn?t show where to put it back. I don?t know what I would do without all the pictures in the Kirby manual. HELP! Thanx. Visual Kirby Vacuu
