SOURCE: kirby diamond edition - shampooer

1. Raise the vacuum head all of the way up. 2. Remove the vacuum head by removing the belt and releasing it. 3. Place the shampooer head on the vacuum by securing the clamp and them put the belt on 4. Take the bag off of the vacuum by twisting at the base just slightly outward and lifting upwards and unclamp it from the handle 5. Put water and cleaner into the water resevoir. 6. Put the reservoir on to the kirby where the bag was by holding it parallel to the vacuum then using both hands, twist it outward slowly until it goes down onto the unit then twist back to parallel position. 7. Put the coil looking piece on the shampooer head on top where the hole is...it will only fit one way successfully. 8. Put the other end on the under side of the water reservoir. 9. Lower the shampooer head all of the way down on the carpet just like you would the vacuum head 10. Turn on the vacuum and reach down and turn the knob at the top of the reservoir, this will begin putting cleaner (tons of foam) onto the carpet. Just work in 3' x 3' sections, turning off the foam intermitently until you are finished. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment

You need a new belt. When the green light goes out, the brush is not spinning. The belt is stretched and needs replaced. Here are detailed belt changing instructions....

Greetings from GoVacuum,

When the green light on the Kirbys stops working, this indicates that your belt has either broken, or fallen off the cleaner so the brush is not spinning. You're probably noticing that it's not picking up as well without that green light. If the belt is broken, and you need to a purchase a new belt, GoVacuum offers these belts for sale here; Kirby Vacuum Cleaner Belts 301291-3 (3 pack) fits all Generation series models G3, G4, G5, G6, G7, Ultimate G, and Diamond Edition in a 3 pack.

Once you have the new belt, please watch our very helpful video on how to replace it, and to make sure that the belt is on correctly, and the green light is on.

SOURCE: the green light is not coming on and kirby is not

HI There,

When the green lights do not come on when vacuuming with a Kirby, this indicates that your belt has either broken or fallen off. There is a magnet on the beater bar that activates the LED green light when it's spinning.

Here's a helpful video tutorial that we recorded, that will show you how to replace the belt, as well as perform basic maintenance on your roller brush to prolong the life of your belt as long as possible.

No suction at all on my Kirby just cleaned the brush, etc... had a hard time getting the belt back on... really hate this vacuum cleaner


I have a kirby Diamond series and the 'green light' on the upper right side (while standing behind the vaccum) does not come on and when it doesn't come on I noticed that it does not sound as though it is picking up at all. I have changed the belt, placed a new bag in it and made sure that there is no clogs. What else could it be?

Do i want the green light on or off on kirby upright


It has nothing to do with the green light. Green light simply indicates that brush roll is spinning. If there is no green light:
1 - belt may be broken
2 - Improperly installed nozzle
3 - wrong brush roll is installed

Properly adjust the nozzle - turn the Kirby on. Keep lowering the nozzle till it touched the carpet and you will hear change in sound. Then lower it by one more click.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Kirby Ultimate Diamond Edition
You can cal the Kirby factory to request a new owner’s manual and they will describe how to use the vacuum on hardwood floors. There is a felt piece as wide as the brushroll area that will clip on to the bottom of the revolving brush area so that you hard wood floors don’t get scratched. The Kirby head will dial off and the Kirby head will come off and the attachment hose will connect to the front of the Kirby and that is how you use the attachments. Also contact your local Kirby vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

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.
