Question about Kirby Vacuums
1. Put the hose instead of the nozzle and see if suction is good with the hose. If it is – 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 the fill tube (tube inside the cloth bag) and mini emptor (bag bottom plastic part) and also see if there is nothing in the exhaust on the vacuum. You may not even see it so use a piece of wire. Once I found a sock there and it was so close to the fan that I could not see it in the hole and got a grip of it only a hook made out of old coat hanger.
