Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

I have the ultimate G The belt is on, new bag, vacuum runs but no roller rotation and minimal if any suction????


Answers :

Check that the pipe between the floor pick-up and the bag is not blocked. This occurs frequently on up-right vacuums - look from both the bag side and the machine underside.

\012See if you can turn the brush by hand and look to see if the belt is moving with the brush - it may be slipping on the drive spindle, especially if the brush is hard to turn. It might have picked up the same fluff that has also blocked the pipe.
On the right side of your vacuum head, there is a green belt indicator light. If when the unit is powered on and this light is not lighting up, you have a broken belt, or you didnt properly latch the belt in place.

a) Broken belt- you can use the belt from your shampoo'er if you have one, otherwise your nearest Kirby distributor has them for a couple bucks

b) As for the suction, the Kirby has 2 motors. 1 motor is for the cleaning of the floor, the other motor (where you see the vent on the left side) is for keeping the unit cool to expand the life, which btw average life of a kirby is 20yrs and they all come with a lifetime refurbishing plan. If your not getting any suction check the boot of the bag where it hooks onto the unit for any clogging
