remove the blower tube by turning anticlockwise. remove cover from air inlet same way. attach large diameter suction tube to air inlet (has to fit correctly as this is where the safety switch is) attach collection bag to air exhaust opening (where you removed the blower tube from)
turn your blower upside down, there should be a slot with a metal thing in it. Stick a Flat head screwdriver in the slot, and push forward or back on the screwdriver, that should open the door on the bottom. Attach your bigger tubes to the bottom of the unit, and the bag on the plower part, and there's your vacuum.
Remove the brushead and attach the adapter (round cup-looking device with a screen or grille on the front).Attach the hose to the blower (bag) side of the machine.In your attachment caddy,there should be a round rubber attachment with rubber teeth around the outer edge.Should be called the pet grooming tool.Grap the attachment and flip the teeth edge back as if you are trying to turn it inside out.It's now ready to use.If you are trying to unclog a dual (kitchen) sink,make sure the other side has the stopper firmly in place so that there is a seal for the entire drain system
There is a round grille on the bottom of the unit. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the latch to release it and reveal the vacuum opening. You should have a two-piece intake pipe that will attach to the opening.
The collection bag attaches to the smaller outlet where the blower pipe used to be (unscrew the wing nut to release the blower pipe). The bag clips onto the hooks at the base of the opening.
Put the switch in the center off position. That allows you to press the big black button in the front and take the vacuum attachment off. Replace the vacuum with the blower attachment and you should them be able to blow rather than vacuum.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=0&thid=566440 Generic problem for all Vacuums Don't have a manual for Posted by ssinghnyc on May 03, 2008 Don’t have a manual for my Kirby - trying to turn on the blower to unclog a drain but can't figure out how. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way to get a Kirby owner’s manual is to call the Kirby Factory and they should have older copies or @ least they can photocopy an older owner’s manual for you @ the address that I will provide for you. I believe that there is a special cuff with a hose attached in order to do the unclog of the drain. I personally have not seen this done but I know the exhaust / blower port on the Kirby serves as a blower. You may look for that hose cuff for that feature. Or , check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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. http://kirby.com/Customer Service – United States & Canada1-800-494-8586 Hours 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (EST)U.S. & Canada Fax # 1 (216) 529-6146 Mail To: Consumer Relations The Kirby Company 1920 West 114 Street Cleveland, OH44102 Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

Thank you, Mine is doing the same thing, I talked to the Vacuum repair guy in my town and he says the berrings(?) go out alot on the Kirby shampooers. But I will definitly try what you did first before replace the Berrings.
