Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
Vacum will not pick up
\015 I have a new carpet and my kirby will not pick up,it spits out the fuzz balls from the rug. It was working fine until the new carpet. 2 belts have broke because of this.\015
Due to the way carpets are made - new carpets sometimes have a lot of loose fiber. This is NORMAL and it may take 3-5 times to vacuum the carpet till it goes back to normal. Spitting out fuzz balls is a bit weird. Make sure you have the belt installed right - see video on www.goodvac.com. but the fact that belts keep breaking I am assuming that you have them installed right. Give it a few more belts and if the problem presists - let me know.

My bissel vacume was not picking up the dirt on the carpet. So I found that the hose was clogged. I unclogged it but the vacume still is not picking up the dirt. I also changed the filters.
I found out that if you remove the front filter holder, tip vacuum back and look down inside. Sometimes there is hair caught back in there and you won't get suction. I had to use something long, knife, very long type tweezers, to pull all the hair ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

I bout this vacume in mid December 07 and about February-March it started not picking up the dust on the floor.

OK. I'm not familiar with this particular vacuum, but I think you've said enough for me to give you some clues. Suction is one thing - air flow is another.

I had my Fantom in for repairs (filter, light, belt, and cleaning) less than 7 months ago. Now its not picking up again and the brushes are not rotating. Does this mean another belt? At $69+ every 6 months, I'm thinking of getting another vacum. Any suggestions? Thanks, Judy

My Vacuum DC-17 has just quit sucking. It has been making quite a racket since I had the belt changed at a repair shop several months ago. I was told that the belt was a new design and figured that was why it was making so much noise. it seemed to work fine, was picking up dirt and all, but today, when I started vacumming, I noticed it was not sucking air either with the belt engaged or not. My vacuum is approx. 5 years old.
