Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Don't know how to change belt on the 2001 G limited edition, having problem taking off the brush.


Answers :

Raise the height adjustment to it's highest setting.Turn the belt lifter knob on the brushead counterclockwise till it stops.Remove the brushead,then turn the belt lifter clockwise till it stops,releasing the belt.Turn the brushead around to the back.You will see 2 latches holding the brush plate assembly on.Unlatch those,and remove the brushroll assembly.Remove the brushroll from the plate by bending the tabs at one end to release the brush.Remove the old belt,and slide the new one over the brushroll.If you remove the entire brushroll,install it with the screw heads facing the floor.The ends of the brush roll have different size caps,one end is larger than the other,and one is black,one is white.This is so the brush will only go in one way.
\015\012Re-install brushroll assembly,latch it down.Look thru the opening in the back,and turn the belt lifter till you see the hook pick up the belt.Install the entire brushead on the front of the vacuum,and lock it down,then turn the belt lifter to drop the belt onto the shaft.Lower the height adjustment,and you are ready to go.

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems


Not sure what you mean when you refer to a "microchip" but maybe it is a sensor that works with the belt.\015\012Anyway, if you Google the make and model number of your vacuum you can probably get an exploded view or owners manual that might indicate ... Vacuums

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a


The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

The hose works great, but the head of the vaccuum does not pick up anything !!! I checked every opening that may have been clogged, but nothing came up. When I hold my hand under the brush/roller, it seems to be putting out more air than intaking air. Particles "dance" on the carpet, but don't get "sucked up" into the vaccuum ? I have had the vaccuum only 1 year, so the brushes should not be a problem. I changed the bag, and checked the belt. The belt and brushes seem to be OK. ?

Hoover Wind Tunnel 7500 Brush not Turning. I have replaced the Brush and the belt. The problem does not seem to be either to me. I believe might be a missing part. The place were the belt hooks on is a metal pole which never seems to grip the belt well. In fact it seems loose most of the time and slips on the brush, causing the belt to eventually burn up. Could there be a missing plastic or rubber piece meant to hold the belt taught  on the metal pole?

I have a VAX V12 vacuum cleaner which suddenly stopped. The smell indicated Carbon Brush Problems. I contacted a service agent who told me that it was not possible to change the Carbon Brushes brushes on this model and they would need to change the Motor Unit.. To me this sounds very unlikely. Two questions please. Is it possible to change the Carbon Brushes and how do I get the cabinet apart which looks very difficult. I am well qualified electrically to do this job. Regards James Beech
