Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

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. Problem is that I don't know whether the belt should be on or off when using the big silver front with the Kirby insignia on it. I know that the green light should come on when it is working properly and it does not, so I am doing something wrong. I can attach the attachments no problem but I want to use


Answers :

If the green light is off, then its time to replace the band. This video shows you how.
The belt should be on (green arrow to green arrow on the knob and powerhead)
\015\012
\015\012I would suggest taking the powerhead off (big silver front with the kirby insignia) and looking to make sure the hook inside the powerhead is picking up the belt. The hook stretches the belt so that it is pulled up over the driveshaft when the powerhead is placed on the front of the kirby. When the hook is stretching the belt for placement the arrows will be red to red (again, this is found on the knob on the front of the kirby)
\015\012
\015\012When the belt is off (red to red) that means the belt is on the hook and off of the driveshaft. When the belt is on that means the belt is on the driveshaft (finger looking thing that sticks out of the kirby when the powerhead is removed) and that will make the brushs spin.

I have owned my kirby sentria for 2.5 years and have had no problems until now. The vacuum still works but I cannot lower it all the way down or the light will turn off and it will start to smell like something is burning inside. I use it on the 2nd or 3rd setting with no problem. I have changed the belt and cleaned all the hair and strings that were on the roller but it still has this problem.

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank


You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have an animal dyson. The front nose dives into the carpet when moving the dyson in the forward motion, fine when pulling back. A huge amount of effort is required to move it forward. Took it to a technician and he said he could find nothing wrong. He had only short nap carpet for test. Works fine on short nap, if the carpet nap has any lenght to it like shag, the dyson severly nose dives. It's like the nose is sucked into the carpet.

Saeco Odea Giro pumps the water but the internal spline or gear is not turning moving the ground coffee grinds to the point where the water can pump to the front exit lines so the water is pumped into the over flow resevoir.

It is a common problem if it is what I think it is. However your description is a little confusing. So the coffee does get ground up, but then has a hard time getting to the next stage of the process? Please clarify... And no water gets pumped th ... Vacuums

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

My walkie talkies won't turn on. We've only used them a few times, and not recently. I charged the batteries, but it doesn't seem to want to switch on. I've pushed that grey side button.

The problem is that the cleaner is heavy to use and does not pull itself forward as it should. It has been back to the supplier 3 times but they have not fixed the problem. The LED's on the front flicker and I think it may be a problem with the sensor.

Dyson vacuum I have a DC07 vaccuum. The problem I am having is that the front does not want to stay down as I vaccuum and I continuously have to keep stepping on the front to make it go back down to the floor. It seems as though there is either not enough weight in the front or possibly the unit just has to be broken in so that there is not so much resistance between the handle and the front of the vaccuum. Could there be something I did not remove or is this typical on these vaccuums?

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
