Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Kirby G4 without suction

My G4 upright model has no suction when the main front piece is on. It works fine with the hose in place but not with the regular front.

    Thanks for your answer, the thing is, it has a brand new belt that was just put on. Maybe I'm not putting the front piece back on correctly? I don't think the inside hook is grasping the belt. I really have trouble fastening and unfastening this thing, my hands are not strong enough.

Change your belt, if there is suction from the hose, and you cant see any blockages in the area where the brush roll is then you need to change the belt, even if it isnt broken. putting your hand over the nozzle to feel the suction is not the way to tell if it has suction.

Very low suction when I use the hose, but the carpet brush roller attachment works fine. Any ideas?


This style of vacuum has great airflow but does not have great suction, especially at the end of the hose but it still should have enough to pick up most soils. It may have a restriction in the suction tube or emptor. The disposable bag may be full or clogged, the outer bag could also be clogged.

How do I fix suction on kirby sentria upright vaccum


  1. Put the hose and see if suction is good. If it is - you may have had nozzle installed wrong or brush roll may be worn out (bristles must be sticking out of the nozzle by about 1/8 of an inch).
  2. If there is no suction with the hose either - check if bag is not overfilled to the point where dirt is blocking the fill tube hole.
  3. If two above are fine - something must be blocking the air passage from the fan to the bag. Check for clogs in the fill tube (tube inside the cloth bag) and mini emptor (bag bottom plastic part) and also see if there is something blocking the exhaust on the vacuum. You may not even see it so use a piece of wire.

How do I use my kirby without upright handle, where do I put the bag?


The bag is left where it is. The hose goes on the front of the vacuum after removing the nozzle. See the How to Attach the Hose instruction video on the below site.

Kirby Suction and Blower Connector


Yes you can. The end of the hose that mates with the suction/blower is flexible. You can use a pair of needle nose pliers to compress the hose end and force it out of the suction/blower connector.

You need the suction/blower connector on the hose:

This must be for G4 or G3 model as later models had this part a bit different.

For rest of the attachment go HERE.
I can sell you used FULL G4 attachment set for 99.00

Good Luck,

Kirby G4 Toe-Touch Control pedal jammed


Flip the Kirby over,and you will find screws that hold the front axle in place.Remove the screws and the front axle.Debris may be caught in the mechanism.Clean the debris out,and use WD-40 to lubricate the mechanism.May be able to do this without removing the axle,but removing it allows for better cleaning or for identifying broken or missing parts.
