Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
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! ;)
by the way, i didn't see the option at the bottom...we have a kirby sentria
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 .

Power off the vacuum.
Unplug the power cord from the wall.
Remove the head or hose attachment.
Look at the fan and make sure all the fins on the fan are there.
If part of one or more is missing it will cause the fan to wobble and shake.
