I am sorry to hear your canister is not fitting properly. You may want to separate your cyclone assembly (the top purple portion of your canister) from the
clear bin and reattach the components to ensure they are fitted together properly.
To do this, open the bottom of the clear bin, as if you were
emptying it. Please be sure the bin is positioned over a trash receptacle in the event there is debris in the bin. Once the bottom of the bin is open please look at the back of your canister. Below the purple top of the canister and to the left of the debris
inlet is a clear plastic loop that you can slip your index finger through. Just
above this loop is a gray release catch . Using your thumb, press down on the
gray release mechanism. At this point you should be able to gently pull the
clear bin away from the cyclone assembly. After separating the pieces, briefly
inspect them to confirm they are not damaged. If there is no obvious damage,
close the base of the clear bin and place the bin on a hard flat surface. Next,
carefully lower the cyclone assembly onto the clear bin. It may be helpful to
use the red plastic piece on the back of your cyclone assembly and clear bin to
line the pieces up correctly. You will hear a slight click once the pieces have
been successfully reattached.
Please attempt to return the canister to the
machine. If you are still not able to attach the canister successfully, please
call us so we can provide further assistance. We can be reached at 1-866-693-9766 (US), 0800 298
0298 (UK), and 01-475-7109 (IE).
Turn the unit upside down and on each side of the roller brush is a red piece of plastic with screws remove and take off roller then you will see the belt drive stem place around stem and on roller and pop back in, Reassemble. Steve
This style machine picks up the dirt/debris with the roller, sends it through a fan and into the bag/cup. This is a very common problem since a plastic fan turning at 2000 rpm meeting anything hard is going to cause damage. (Loose Change, toys, anything small) This fan creates your suction and when it is damaged it creates none, it also is the "noisy" part of any vacuum and becomes extremely noisy when damaged.
To Replace this part:
Remove hood (4 screws underneath)
Remove handle assembly ( one bolt through handle and slide off)
remove the belt
Remove the 2 brackets on each side of the motor that hold it in place. (4 screws)
Lift motor off base assy.
Remove rubber cuff around top of motor assy.
Remove the 6 screws on large size of motor assy. and remove cap.
Turn fan (or whats left of it) off of spindle by holding belt drive spindle on oppisite side of the motor.
Replace fan and reassemble.
You can also take this to most any Hoover authorized service center, they would have the parts in stock and could probably do it for less than 50 dollars. Check their dealer locator for a local center.
no only take the bottom off ,there will be three screws,take the belt put in over the shaft of the motor , loop it ,run it over the silver spindle to the brush assembly ,replace the brush in the slot that it came from,the belt now is over the motor shaft running over the spindle ,and over the brush assembly,replace the three screws and you should be good to go.
The Kirby air flow can be reversed to become a blower (not pump).
This is ideal for blowing up low pressure items such as air beds etc.
Take off the complete bag assembly by twisting at the bottom and unclip at the top.
Fit the flexible hose to where the bag attached, align the arrows and twist fully until located.
Remove the front brush assembly, lift the front head light flap, detach the belt by twisting the square knob to the red position (off). un-clip the front assembly.
Your kirby should be supplied with a box type attachment (air intake guard) that fits on the front covering the motor spindle and making the safety switch.
Once fitted your kirby should now blow.
Depending on which style you have, it may have a opening on the right side as you look at the front of the machine. If not you may need to remove the cover. If it does it says "belt access" and has two 1/8" (about) slots in the cover. with a small screw driver or something similar insert tool into slot and gently pry(if you are looking from the side) the left slot up and towards the right and the right slot up and to the left. It will slowly (or quickly depending on how hard you have to push) pop up and you can slide it off and see the pump. I think it is easier to just remove the 4 screws that hold the pump in place so you can replace both belts at the same time and not struggle with having to stretch the new belts. The last time I did this the Sprocket(small metal peice with teeth that turns the brushes) had broken off. I cleaned and dried everything and used 30 second epoxy to glue the sprocket back on and it works fine lasts a long time. Once you have removed the 4 screws holding the pump you can use a flashlight and screwdriver, knitting needle, pen etc. to hook the belt from the brush on to the pump shaft(sprocket) very easy. You may need to tilt and angle the pump a little to gt the belt over the lip on the sprocket. Like I did when I did this you will need to put the smooth belt on over the pump shaft first then put on the brush belt and screw the pump back into place (4 screws just snug because you can easily strip the plastic mounting holes) and put smooth belt on the electric motor shaft. you may need to stretch the belt a little because it has no gears it is just friction that turns the pump. Clean and dry everything this will make this repair last longer. If you will take a few minutes after each use to clean at least around the belt area they will last a long time. You can even put a belt conditioner on them for added life. Have a wonderful day!!!!!
