Having problems with your Kirby Vacuums ?

My Kirby Ultimate G is not picking up anything and makes a rattle noise when turned on.

Answers :

Greetings from GoVacuum,
\015\012The Kirby vacuum is a very well engineered vacuum cleaner. There's usually not many things that go wrong with them.
\015\012You may just need to replace the belt on the machine, this should take\015\012care of the not picking up part. Even though the belt may not be\015\012broken, it may have stretched to a point where the roller brush is not\015\012spinning as fast as it should. This will effect the vacuum's\015\012performance, and make it not pick up as well.
\015\012Here's a video that we did showing how to replace a belt on Kirby\015\012vacuums. If this doesn't take care of the problem, let me know I'd be\015\012happy to try and help you determine what the problem is. One other\015\012thing you may want to look at, is the fan on the machine. When you\015\012take the front agitator housing off of the machine, look inside the\015\012vacuum at the fan, make sure that there are no cracks, and that the fan\015\012is not broken off.

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

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

The belt broke and after putting on new belt I dicscovered the cylinder with the brushes attached wasn't turning. After I finally got the cylinder to turn it makes a very very loud noise and also now it doesn't pick up the dirt. The vacuum is less than a year old.

Check the cylinder with brushes does not have hair or carpet fibers causing it to bind. With the belt removed the brush should turn freely and fairly easy. The original belt probably broke because of this. You may have to fully dis-assemble the head ... Dirt Devil Vacuums

My Ultimate G Kirby started making a strange noise and an unusual smell of burning.

If it is a smell of rubber, then you could have a bad belt and/or brush roll. If it is an electrical smell, then the carbon brushs for the motor may be arc-ing, you will have to check the motor for that. ... Vacuums
