Spray some oil on it to loosen it. Then rock it back and forth as pulling to remove.

How do i detach hose to remove blockage?


Lift the hose out as if you were going to use the attachments. At the base of the hose there is a swivel to adjust the hose 90 degrees. Where the lower section of the hose attaches to the swivel you will see that if you give the hose about a quarter turn then lift, it should come off to check for blockage. Also check the rear suction port located near the hose swivel for blockage. It resembles a parallelogram in shape and come off with 2 visible plastic screws.

How do you put on the attachment hose to clean stairs


Assuming the rug nozzle is currently attached, lift up the headlight hood. Twist the belt lifter (black plastic square) on the rug nozzle counterclockwise to remove the belt tension. Then pull the accessory lock up until the rug nozzle comes loose of the Power Plant. You will notice two hinges at the bottom that hook on the the Power Plant's attaching bar. Gently lift up the rug nozzle to unhook it from the attaching bar.

Now your Kirby is naked. You will notice two small hooks on the hose attachment--hook them over the attaching bar, place the end of the hose attachment firmly against the Power Plant, then push the accessory lock down to clamp the hose in place.

You are now ready to use your Kirby with the hose attachment.

How do I attach the hose to a Kirby G5?


UN PLUG THE MACHINE before attempting this. There is a safety switch that prevents you from getting hurt but please just to be safe un plug the machine.

The hose attaches to the front of the machine. You will need to take off the brushroll nozzle first to do this.

Lift the front lid with the light on it. Pull the plastic lever from the front turn knob. Twist the plastic knob until the red markings line up. Turn the metal latch at the top of the nozzle. Pull off nozzle.

Take hose and attach it to where the nozzle was. The little plastic curved hooks on the hose attach to the metal rod. Once you have the hose on turn the metal latch to hold the hose onto the machine the same way the nozzle was held on.

Let me know if you need more help.
Thanks!

Goes slightly forward and then backs, turns and tries again. As though it is hitting something in front of it


Take a can of air with the attachable tube and blow it into the underside near where the guard attaches. If you move this back and forth you will see some pivots underneat the the device. These pivots block the electronic eyes, which are clouded with dirt, and making your DD think its hitting a wall. If this does not work, you will have to take the front guard off, which is 6 screws or so, and you will see the eyes directly, which you can then clean.

No suction from base or hose attachment


Hi,
I had the same problem with my Eureka vacuum cleaner. I don't have the problem with the beater bar, but I had the problem with the attachment hose not getting any suction. I found out that I was putting attachment on the wrong end of the hose. The end that you use in the front. Don't how I got that confused because it always worked before. Hope this helps with the hose part of the problem.

Connecting hoses on Kirby G4


The hose attaches in place of the beater-bar head unit. To remove the head unit, lift the headlight assembly, then turn the square gray Kirby emblem counter-clockwise 3/4 of the way around until the red triangle on the square portion aligns with the red triangle on the base unit (this disengages the belt). Then flip the silver metal fastener that was underneath the headlight to release the head unit and remove the head unit. To attach the hose, simply line it up so that the safety button is engaged by the hose assembly and then use the metal fastener under the headlight to secure the hose to the base unit.

Attachment probs


Hi- Do you have a manual for the vacuum? My manual says to raise the headlight hood and then flip out the l-shaped handle on the belt lifter and turn it until the red arrows line up. Turn the accessory lock all the way to the left and the front should lift off. Then take the attachment hose and hook the two hooks over the bar and then push the hose up against the vacuum and lock into place by turning lever to the right. Does this help? Its kinda hard to explain without the pics.
