Having problems with your Kirby Vacuums ?
My kriby micron magic vac is not picking up .
There are several reasons why your Kirby isn't performing at it's best.Check the fill tube inside the cloth bag for clogs or tears in the fill tube itself.If the cloth bag is full of dirt,you have a broken or loose filltube.Check to see if the belt needs to be replaced.The belt could be streched out or broken.Next,check to see if the bristles on the brusroll are wore down.You could need a new brushroll.If the brushroll is resonably new,it could need to be adjusted down more.To adjust the brushroll.remove it from the housing and turn the ends of the brushroll to the next side,and reinstall.The ends of the brushroll are equipped with offset end,and by turning the ends and dropping it back in,you've adjusted it to the next level.The bristles should extend 1/8-1/4 inch beyond rug plate.Also if theres dirt in the cloth bag,you may have to wash bag to clean out the pores in the cloth.

I have the yellow altima vac. for a while now I can not get the darn thing to pick up properly. Or should i say keep it up.. The vac does seem to be getting everything picked up but as soon as you turn it off, you have a mess under the vac.. I have checked for clogks and can't seem to find any.. I have removed the hose, Nothing there.. And yep have removed the yellow thing inside the trash cup.. Is there anything else you could suggest??
If it smells hot, then there's a strain on the motor no doubt about it. Check the suction channel behind the sole plate and remove all of the hoses to check for a clog. It could well be that there is a clog inside the machine after the dust channel f ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

My vac has lost suction. When I vacuum it picks up very little, but when I remove the wand hose it has good suction. We have cleaned both filters, checked for blockage in all hoses & cleaned the beater bar brush. All to no avail. Is it the motor? Or is there a blockage deep in the vac somewhere? We're debating repair versus buying a new one. Hope you can help. Thanks.

For the first time, I tried using my Kirby Sentria shampoo attachment. I've lost the manual but found instructions online for making the swap from regular vac to shampoo-er and got it all assembled. The foam laid down just fine, however, when I run the vac back over the foam to pick it up, there is not a stitch of water showing up in the tray. First I thought maybe it was bc I hadn't put that much of the foam/water onto the carpet, but 12 hours later, the carpet is still wet in spots. Clearly
