SOURCE: How to put a Kirby Vacuum belt back on

To put on a kirby belt all you need to do is put on the belt on the brushroll, put the brushroll into the housing making sure the marks on the end of the brushroll are the same. Take the spin dial in the front and "hook" the belt till the dial reads off. Put the head back on the machine and spin the dial to "on".

Kirby Sentra vacuum burning belts
posted by campoclan on May 02, 2008
Have had Kirby vacuum for a couple of years since I've had it I burn at least two belts in two months. I keep roller clean, what is the problem?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Some of the problems that people have is that they feel they have to have the vacuum head all the way to the floor and that makes the belt work that much harder. The key to the best cleaning is to raise the height adjustment all the way to the top and once it’s there then drop it down one notch or setting @ a time until you here the tone change. Then try it to see if the vacuum if picking up well if not drop it down one more notch and that should be the setting it is supposed to be for your type of carpet. And remember to use the genuine Kirby belts instead of the Kirby replacements, they will work better. And your suggestion that to keep the brushroll clean and free spinning on each end and also keep the bottom plate clean of dirt and grease because if there is a build up it will move slower and leave black marks on the carpet. I hope this will help and if not contact 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.

Vibrating – that usually happens on some short fiber or very dense carpets. When nozzle goes against the carpet fiber Kirby starts jumping. Try vacuuming the same place while facing opposite way.

Belt – red arrows means DISENGAGE. When you install the nozzle on the Kirby unit while green arrows match you will not be able to turn it on red. You must follow sequence (starting from nozzle off the Kirby, green arrows match, Kirby front lifter all the way up by pressing one of the pedals):
1. Turn Kirby knob to match red arrows. You will feel some tension and hook inside of the nozzle is supposed to catch the belt and stretch forming a loop for the Kirby shaft.
2. Put the nozzle on the Kirby and lock it on with the latch.
3. Twist the knob back to match the green arrows. YOU ARE DONE

Go to GoodVac.com Kirby vacuum online manual. There are some small details that you may want to pay attention to if you have removed the brush roll to install a new belt. Also there are some pictures that will help you understanding the process.

How to put on a kirby vacuum belt


The emblem on the front of the Kirby vacuum controls the installation of the belt. Rotate this emblem. ( I do not remember which direction it rotates). This relieves the tension on the belt. Replace the belt and rotate the emblem back to lock it in.

I CAN'T REPLACE THE BELT ON THE CLASSIC III (KIRBY). CAN YOU HELP ME? ELAINE
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The belt install on a Kirby is to raise the height adjustment to the highest level and then dial the belt off counter clockwise so it is loose and not on the fan pulley, release the top lever on the bell housing, then remove the bottom plate and unhook the brushroll on one side, slide the old belt off and then slide the new one on, replace the brushroll with the screws facing the carpet and re-hook the bottom plate on the Kirby. Then take the bell housing and hook that back on to the Kirby and lock it down. Then dial the belt on clockwise all the way and the belt should be on the fan pulley. The belt should be ready to go, plug in your Kirby and then do the step down on the vacuum height adjustment until the tone changes, then try to see id it picks up, if not go one more height adjustment and that should be the correct setting.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This is an older Kirby vacuum and the front brushroll section of the vacuum and the front brushroll section will come off, 1st you have to remove the front cover (the Kirby Emblem) and under that there is a Kirby spoon or hook and you need to dial off the belt off the belt shaft, once that has been done remove the bottom plate and un-install the Kirby brushroll, check to see if the brushroll spins freely, if it does go onto the next step, if not clean off the hair and thread from either end and then re-check the brushroll, if it still binds up then replace the brushroll and belt with Genuine Kirby belt and brush. Then use the dial to place the belt onto the Kirby spoon / hook. Once the belt is on the hook, install the bottom planter and place then housing of the Kirby on the vacuum and use the lever on the top to secure the fan housing dial the belt onto the pulley and you should be good to go.

I can't get the new belt on my Kirby

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The Kirby Vacuum has a removable head and bottom plate and the belt is hooked on by a hook inside of the Kirby head of the vacuum. You need to slide the belt onto the Kirby brushroll to the center and the dial in front of the Kirby vacuum does rotate to the right – so @ this time you would dial the belt clockwise and the inside hook will pickup the inside belt and continue turning the dial / hook until it stops – look inside to see if the belt in on the fan shaft – if it is then install the bottom plate back on the vacuum and then install the head back on the Kirby or if it is newer the head is already on the motor assm.
Plug in the vacuum and if the belt stays on and the brushroll is tuning you have done it right – if not reverse the situation, unplug the vacuum and start over with the procedure. The hook will dial the belt onto the fan pulley if done correctly. Example: try to turn the dial on the front of the vacuum to see hoe it works and the way the dial will turn so that the procedure will be easier. The dial does turn hard when dialing the belt onto the pulley.
