Question about Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
When i push it it is very hard to push. please help?
There is 2 screws on either side of the brushroll-Turn those in farther,or all the way,depending on how worn out the bristles are.This adjusts the brushroll down to it's lowest setting,which helps pull the vacuum along.Also,the brush plate on the bottom-clean it really well,then use car wax on the bottom plate.This makes the plate slippery,and wont leave a residue on your carpet.

Yes it has a belt. Could be the belt or a worn out brush roller, or you don't have the height adjustment set right. But I would check the belt first. It is the cheapest part and if you haven't changed it lately it probably needs it anyhow.
If you haven't changed the belt before it's a little tricky.
Turn the knob on the front to the belt off position, and unlatch the top of the nozzle to remove it. Pull the nozzle off and turn the knob to the belt on position. Take off the bottom plate and take out the old brush roller and belt. Pay special attention to how the roller comes out. You don't want to get it in backward.
Put the new belt on the roller and center it. Put the roller back into the nozzle and put the bottom plate back on. Turn the knob to the belt off position you should be able to see through the hole in the back, the hook pick up the belt and stretch in up.
Put the nozzle back on the unit, latch the top, and turn the knob to the belt on position. Simple Right? LOL
It has to be one of the most complicated machines to change a belt on .
P.S. they usually give you extra belt when you buy it, and the new style knurled belts work fine as well.
Good Luck-Don't be afraid to ask another question if that doesn't solve your problem.
