The wheels fell off.


The wheels are held to the axles with small c-clips. Perhaps these have come loose. If the wheel is still attached to part of the axle. The axle has broken and will need replacement.

My rear wheels keep poppping off. I've hammered and glued, but they won't stay on. Do I need new wheels or a new axle assembly?


Greetings,

You may need to just purchase the the little c-clips that hold the wheels onto the axle. Kirby Vacuums actually have a hub cap on their rear wheels that can be removed to access the axle end with the c-clip. If you take a flat head screwdriver, and pry off the plastic part of the wheel off of the rubber part, you should be able to see the end of the axle. There should be a little tiny c-clip at the end of the axle that holds the rear wheel in place. Is that clip there on both sides?

If yes, then you may need to replace the entire axle assembly. If they are missing these clips are available for purchase through many online websites including our own, govacuum.com.

If this repair didn't fix your Kirby, please contact me, I'm happy to try and diagnosis this further with you. If it did help, please rate the repair as helpful, thank you.

How do i attach the shampooer to my g6 kirby


Greetings,

Here's an easy to understand and follow video review on how to attach the carpet shampooer to the Kirby Generation 6 (G6). The model that's being used in this video is a little newer model, the Sentria, but the procedure to attach the carpet cleaning attachment is the same exact repair on the Sentria as it is on your Kirby G6 vacuum.

I hope this helps!

The spring goes inside that pedal that you step on to advance the height. Place that spring in that pedal and then place the pedal into its' groove, then put the axile and wheel assembly over the pedal and put your screws back into the mounting sections.

Right wheel slips off on Kirby Gsix . How do I fix it?


Hello,
The shaft is held onto the machine with two little metal pieces on the bottom of the Kirby. They are held on with screws. The rear wheels are held onto the shaft with a little tiny "c" clip.

The back wheel came off and i went to put it back on and the other wheel that connects to the mechinism/gear height ajustment that goes up/down with a spring in it came off as well. i have been looking for...


You do not need schematics, it is fairly easy. Clean and lubricate the teeth on the inside of the front wheel shaft assembly. Insert the spring into small pedal and place the pedal designated opening on the Kirby front fan casing with teeth facing out. Then take the wheel shaft assembly and put it over those teeth and onto the fan casing. Use two clamps and 2 screws to attach the shaft to the fan case. Need any parts - go HERE.

Good Luck,

Axle bracket problem


You can find parts HERE. I do not think you need new "Ratchet Lock Assm." unles yu lost it (I have never seen one broken). Make sure you have the Spring and lubricate it well (do not use liquid lubricants as they will leak on the carpet).

God Luck

Replacing spring in wheel height adjustment


I just solved the problem. Go to this website: http://www.completevac.com/kirby_schemo_5.html
It will show you where the spring goes (left side inside the ratchet - when you remove the ratchet you will see that it is hollow. That's where the spring goes!) and a good picture of that assembly
