Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

KIRBY ISSUES! :(

\015 Hi, we're troubleshooting. our kirby vacuum is "smoking" and smells like something is burning whenever we turn it on. we've replaced the belt but that didn't work because it does this even when the belt is turned off! what could this be? is it common? we want our kirby back! ;)thank you!!!by the way, i didn't see the option at the bottom...we have a kirby sentria-peggie\015

Answers :

Sounds about right you should change that type of belt every six months to a year regardless if its broken or not. one other thing you should do is make sure the brush roll itself isn't bound up it should spin freely if not you can pull the plastic ends off the roller to clean any hair or thread out .
I have the Kirby Sentria and have just had problem shampooing carpet. The water comes out but isnt coverting the shampoo concentration in the water into 'foam'. I just get a line of water. Not good ..... help!. Love my Kirby .... need it working pronto!!!!!! Any suggestions?

My Kirby G 2001 upright vacuum wont turn on. I tried another outlet and still nothing. I don't see a breaker switch anywhere. If you know of any common problems I would love to hear them. I am very mechanically inclined, I just was wondering if there are any common issues with the motors or power switches etc. so I don't waste a lot of time troubleshooting. Thanks


This might sound a bit silly but check to see if the cord is plugged into the machine correctly if it is check to see if the safety interlocks are all engaged. ... Vacuums

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci


Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Manual issues Have reciently purchased a kirby from ebay (gotta love ebay) but has no manual. I believe the model is a heritage (cant see a II though) Do they all have roughly the same manuals??? I have all the attactments - spray painter, hair trimmer, turbo brush etc but really want to get the most from the machine. Where do I get manuals for machines that are 20yo???!!!

I have what I thought to be a Kirby Classic Omega that is in excellent running condition and looks great. I love it and have been using it for years, but it is recently going through an identity crises! I looked on the identification plate under the motor while cleaning it and discovered that the ID sticker says it's a Kirby Classic III. How can this be when every part of my dear kirby is Omega brown? There is not a hint of Red or Rosewood! Is there another way to determine the actual model b

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

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

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

I have a Kirby Generation 3. The handle spring assembly is broke, so I took it apart to get a part number. Can you tell me if there is a cross reference or something on these parts. I am unable to find a part with the same number that is located on the part I took off. The number on this spring assembly shows Kirby HA-670289B K-1. Any help finding this part is appreciated.
