There are several reasons why your Kirby isn't performing at it's best.Check the fill tube inside the cloth bag for clogs or tears in the fill tube itself.If the cloth bag is full of dirt,you have a broken or loose filltube.Check to see if the belt needs to be replaced.The belt could be streched out or broken.Next,check to see if the bristles on the brusroll are wore down.You could need a new brushroll.If the brushroll is resonably new,it could need to be adjusted down more.To adjust the brushroll.remove it from the housing and turn the ends of the brushroll to the next side,and reinstall.The ends of the brushroll are equipped with offset end,and by turning the ends and dropping it back in,you've adjusted it to the next level.The bristles should extend 1/8-1/4 inch beyond rug plate.Also if theres dirt in the cloth bag,you may have to wash bag to clean out the pores in the cloth.

Can I use shop-vac without bag 5gal5.5 hp


If you are using it for wet pick up, you would not use the bag. If you are using it for dry pick up, I would recommend using the bag to keep dust from going thru the vacuum and back into the area you are trying to vacuum.

Vacuuming up water with Shop Vac model 84M200


when picking up dry materials use the foam sleeve that slips on and the blue cloth (assuming there all blue) over it, there should be a ring that slides over blue cloth to hold it in place over the foam sleeve, for wet pick up u can use the foam sleeve minus the blue cloth but let it dry out before picking up dry stuff, you can pick up both wet and dry with a cartrige filter that looks simular to a car air filter and it slips over the foam sleeve, but let it dry out after picking up water before picking up dry cause itll just clog it up

Vac will not pick up water


I have a shop Vac too. It will only pick up when held at the surface rather than completely submerged.

The vacuum cleaner does not pick up anything from carpet. It does not even pick up pieces of thread laying on carpet. On tile floors it blows dirt away instead of picking it up. I've tried all the settings...


Sounds like there is a clog..

Usually its in the hose - look closely.. Stretch the hose out straight and look in there good..

Or a clog could be in the vac close to where the hose conects to the vac on either end..

This is most case scenario with these types of vacs..

I hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Kirby micron magic g5d 120v.50/60hz lost owners instuction manual


Hello, Here is a link to the shampooer instructions and you will also be able to find a manual there. The G5 manual is out of print, but ANY G series manual will work as they are all exactly the same with difference of color.
