Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

My Sentria always runs in the drive mode and it is so fast it seems out of control. If I push the neutral pedal it stays in drive. I can push it the regular way when it is turned off, whether the pedal is in the drive position or neutral.


Answers :

I sold vacuums for almost 20 yrs and the Kirby gets lots of complaints. The transmission that it has in it breaks as your has and they are costly.The best thing to do would be to take the maching to the local vacuum store(eg. sewing and vacuum are often in the same store).Bring it to a used vac store and they all repair kirby and thay can give you the best advice. I dont recommend going to kirby as thay will spend four hours at your house trying to sell you a newer model and they have not changed enough to get another one in hopes it will be betrter. Good luck

G5 Kirby. Works in Neutral fine. When Drive is engaged and I push forward, the wheels do not rotate forwards, however on the pullback stroke the wheels rotate backwards. What causes this? Something is clearly in the wrong position, so a diagram showing the correct position of the part that is affected would be useful.

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?


As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a sta rite (pentair) cristal high rate sand filter model T-200-BP-1....its leaking water thru the top of the valve, where the valve cover screws on the valve body assembly. it leaks water out where they go together around the screws.

When I turn on the unit and push on the level that draws the "arm" back, it immediately shuts off. I return it to the upright position and turn it on again and repeat the process. Same thing happens. Took it to an Oreck repair shop (mistake #1) and they couldn't figure out what was wrong. Any ideas?

I have an Easy-Flo central vac unit. The handle on the electric hose has a switch on the handle. With the switch on ''O'' in the center, it's off. On the left, is the ''I'' position. The vacuum runs but the power brush doesn't. On the right is the ''II'' position. The switch won't flip that way. It feels stuck. It feels as if there is something underneath of it that won't let it push that direction. I have the switch out of the handle, but I can't seem to get the actual black casing around the


Switches are not usually designed to be dissembled.I would strongly suggest that you dont take the switch apart. you are better off getting a new one. then if you feel like it you can take the old switch apart and if it dosnt work you still hav ... Vacuums

Wont re-assemble I took the bottom plate off to clean out the rotary bush and can not get the plate back on! I think it is the position of the roller but no matter which way I place it when i turn it , it flicks back into the place that means i cant put the plate back on!


Assuming you did not remove the brush roller to clean it and consequently did not reseat it, I am guessing that the bottom plate is not reinstalling as it should. On some uprights, the bottom plate hooks in at the front and is latched in place with c ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My G6 kirby stopped working. i have checked the wire for fraying and continuity and found no problems.

The vacuum comes on but the standup vacuum assessory won't turn on. I"ve pushed the reset button; unhooked everything, including reattaching the canister but it still wont' come on. Any other ideas?

Check the roller brush to see if anything is wrapped around it. If not, there may be a loose connection or wire between the canister and the power nozzle. I assume that's the accessory you're referring to. I could also be a defective switch, but loo ... Vacuums

I have a 5260D Baby Lock Serger, which I had tuned up a year ago. I haven't used it very much since. When I took it in, and again now, it sews fine for awhile, then starts slowing down until it is barely sewing, even with the foot all the way down. The hand wheel seems very tight. - it doesn't turn freely, but takes a some push, like it is resisting a bit. Any idea what could cause this slow down and the tight hand wheel? I appreciate any ideas. Thank you. Maura

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.

Placing the handle of my Dyson DC07 into its upright and locked position causes the beater bar to stop turning. It will not start turning until the handle is first lowered to the working position and the Carpet/Bare knob is moved to the Bare Floor position and then back to the Carpet position. Then the beater bar turns until the handle is placed into the upright position. What might be the problem?

Floor Attachment I took off my floor attachment, but now the belt seems to be off and I can't seem to get it back on right. I can't use the attachment and I don't know why it's so hard to figure this out. They say, just turn it to belt off, but when i turn it it lift's it up and can't line up with the belt off label. Then, when I turn it the other way, it's off. So I've been trying to pull it off so when it lines up with belt off, it's off. But the I turn it the other way and it's still off a
