Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Kirby G4 Vacuum "BOOT"?

I'm not too sure of the name of the part i need. It is where the bag hooks on to the vacuum, the hard plastic boot. It's the thing you clamp the bottom of the bag to. Mine has seem to come unglued and makes a crack where the dust comes out while vacuuming. I'm not to sure if this can be glued back together or needs to be replaced and if where to buy it? Thanks in advance for any replies.

Greetings from GoVacuum,

The bottom part of the bag, which you referred to as a "Boot" is actually called a Kirby G4 Mini Em-Tor with Fill Tube Assembly. Kirby Part # 199493S. The part is only available to purchase with the fill tube assembly, this is the part that the disposable paper bag connects to inside the cloth outer bag.

Kirby has redesigned this fill tube, as the original design sometimes would cause the inner fill tube to crack. The Mini Em-Tor Fill Tube Assembly, part 199493S comes already assembled with the "boot" at the bottom, and the vacuum bag collar (the part the bag actually attaches to) at the top of it. You will need to remove the cloth outer bag from your old part, and put it onto the new "Boot". The cloth bag connects the "boot" with a special zip tie, which is Kirby Vacuum Bag Clamp. Kirby Part # 196599S. Where it is possible to remove the bag clamp without breaking it, I will warn you that this is no easy task. Spare yourself the aggravation of having to try and remove the clamp, and just cut the bag clamp with a knife or scissors.

You will also have to remove the top of the bag collar at the top of the cloth bag by releasing the fill tube from the inside of the cloth bag.

All of the parts are located on our website, www.govacuum.com. If you have any questions about the repair, you can get me on a live help, chat service located in the top right corner of our website. I'd be happy to walk you through this.

Thanks,

I have a G4 and the plastic at bottom of bag is cracked


Hi There,

Well sort of. For the G4, the bottom boot is sold with the internal fill tube that inside of the outer bag, where the paper bag connects. These two parts are sold complete as an assembly already put together. You'll just need to take off the strap at the bottom of the boot that holds the outer bag onto the boot. This strap is sometimes difficult, and sometimes it's easier to just purchase a new strap and install it.

Here are direct links to the parts that you'll need on our website:

Kirby G4 Mini Em-Tor with Fill Tube Assembly. Kirby Part # 199493S


And here's the bag strap that you may just want to purchase so you can just cut the old one off:

My kirby vacuum just quit when I was vacuuming my car


Your Kirby has a cut off switch in the front where your hose attaches and also on the side where your bag attaches. If the plastic prong that activates the switch broke off your hose you vac will not turn on. If you put the head back on and make sure your bag is on correctly and the machine runs, you just need a hose end to fix your problem.
