Most Kirbys have two tabs on the inlet hole that line up with two notches on the cardboard face of the bag that lock it into place Grab the cardboard part of the bag and turn it about 30 degrees to the left while pulling out on it and the bag should pop right out.

Need Kirby Generation 3 Vacuum cleaner manual. Vacuum is not picking up dirt from floor. Seems to have enough suction to inflate the bag, but when you check the suction under the vacuum, there seems to...

If your brush roll is turning and your bag is not overly full, then the only other thing it can be is a clog where the bag connects to the vacuum. Turn the plastic part out away from vacuum and lift off to see if you have something clogging it. It would have to be something big, but not so big that it could not get past the fan. As a rule of thumb, KIRBY never clogs. I suspect that your belt is stretched out and your brush roll is not turning while on the carpet so the brush roll is just in the way rather than brushing your carpet to pick up dirt.

Kirby G3

Beginning with the G series, G3 and G4 had round openings for the dirt intake. Prior models had oval so they will not fit, so find G3 or G4 bags and you will be set

kirby style 2 bags if it is indeed a bagged unit, some where special order with what is called a shake out bag, if your outer bag has a short zipper with a cloth pocket it is a shake out bag in which you take the assembly loose from the machine and open the bottom of the metal empter and take out side and basically shake out the dirt. and use the pocket to help get out the dirt. but most of these machines did take a style 2 bag in which you unzip the outer bag and pull the paper bag away from the tube and reinsert new one onto tube and finally zip up bag
