You will have to remove bag strap. You can try to save old strap (see instruction here) or you can cut it. Install the bag on the new mini-emptor just like it was on old one (strap goes over both layers of vinyl). Use a long cable tie instead of the strap if you have damages it or your old bag strap. If you are using old strap you may have to use pliers to get it in all the way.

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 change the fill tube


Cut the old fill tube from the lower housing and remove the top adapter from the old tube. Clean the bag and housing to be sure the spout the tube attaches to is clean. Be certain to use the fill tube used in the Generation 3 and 4 models which has a wire in it. Wet the lower few inches of the tube and screw it fully onto it's base in the lower housing. The upper adapter can be attached with cable ties.

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:

Kirby Vacuum Bag Clamp. Kirby Part # 196599S

You do not need a whole bag. The bag fill tube is replaceable. can be temp fixed with duct tape and new one installed at home. vacuum inside with another vac and you will be set to replace

I need to install a mini emptor on a Heritage II Kirby


I actually figured this out on my own. Just removed the rubber out seal between the bad and em-tor, then used a screw driver to gently pry the bag out of it's grove. The wire part of the hose actually unscrews from the em-tor. Reverse the process to install the new one. Gotta love Kirby engineering.

Dust smell when running g4 kirby


The dusty smell coming from my G4 finally drove me to search out the problem. As it turned out, the fill tube had cracked near the top of the mini emptor (the boot) and dust and crumbs were escaping from the tube and into the cloth bag. I tried to repair the split with duct tape and electrical tape, but to no avail. I finally gave up and ordered a new fill tube online for about $8. This took care of the problem, and the machine works like new with no more dusty smell.

Kirby G4 Vacuum "BOOT"?


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,

Do you know how to change a emptor assembly


http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=0&thid=725050 Generic problem for all Vacuums… Do you know how to change an emptor assembly? Posted by smcgee on June 30, 2008 I've got a Kirby G4 and I need to replace the emptor assembly. Do you know how to change it?
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Kirby mini emptor assm can be replaced by going inside of the cloth bag and looking for the ty tie that is hold it onto the clothe outer bag and cut the ty tie to release the mini emptor on the Kirby. The bag @ the bottom has elastic around the bottom and should come right off; it will be tight but should come off. The front of the mini emptor has a gasket so make sure the new one has the same small gasket also, and that will just turn and unhook. You need to find a new ty tie just as long as the one you are removing; either from a local vacuum cleaner store, the Kirby Factory Cust serv (Parts) or try the Home Depot or Menards or a box store similar to those. 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.
