Take the front of the kirby off (the part that has the brush roller in it) and look in the big hole where the fan impeller is. Most likely this plastic part is cracked and needs to be replaced. Just turn the metal rod sticking out of the hole and the outer ring with the fan blades on it will be cracked off of the inner piece. It is a cheap part (usually $12-$15) but getting to it is not for the mechanically disadvantaged.

Its probably clogged change the bag, you can also remove the cloth bag unit by holding on the bottom of it and pulling the large end away from the machine to see if theres any thing stuck in the bag tube and the hole that it sits on also check the brush area as well

Kirby G3 vacuum shampooer is not picking up water.


Belt may be slipping or wore out. Are you running the brush too low to the carpet. That will prevent it to work.also you have to take the cap off the container when sucking the water up.

My Kirby is blowing out not sucking in how do I change this?


Either there is a blower option on the vacuum cleaner that needs to be set back to where it belongs, or somebody changed the brushes on the motor and got the brush or field wire connections reversed (one or the other, but not both).

My Kirby G3 paint attachment isn't spraying the paint. I have everything hooked up according to the manual, and it sprays a continuous stream of air, but isn't sucking up the paint to spray. Sometimes I...


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like it"s cogged with paint, the paint is not being sucked up into the Spray gun itself, the air flows thru thr spray gun thru the trigger assembly. Follow the makers cleaning of the spray section of the spray gun. Try running paint thinner thru the spray system. Hpope this helps.

Spray gun for cleaning--Do you just hook it up to the regular hose? How do you avoid it sucking?

Kirby blowing out aire


Unplug the vacuum and clean out the hose that goes from the beater to the intake. The hose is either plugged with debis or has become disconnected or BOTH. You may have to use a screw driver to remove the plate over the beater brush.

Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment


You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.
