Facing the front of the machine,turn the belt lifter knob counterclockwise till it stops.Lift the headlight hood and unlatch the brushead from the machine.Place the large end of hose to machine,and lock it down.You are now ready to remove the air from the bags.
Note:Anytime you have to remove or replace the brushead,make the belt lifter knb the first thing you turn when removing,and the last thing you turn when reinstalling.It will save you alot of confusion in the process.

I recently put a new bag in my kirby and now when i turn it on, it will not pick up anything


see if you connected it or install it correctly, see if there is any leackage of air, see if it is air tight, the reason is that the air cannot vacum because there might be some open connection between the bag and the air exhaust of the vacum

Kirby G4 Vacuum "BOOT"?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

The bottom part of the bag, which you referred to as a "Boot" is actually called a Kirby G4 Mini Em-Tor with Fill Tube Assembly. Kirby Part # 199493S. The part is only available to purchase with the fill tube assembly, this is the part that the disposable paper bag connects to inside the cloth outer bag.

Kirby has redesigned this fill tube, as the original design sometimes would cause the inner fill tube to crack. The Mini Em-Tor Fill Tube Assembly, part 199493S comes already assembled with the "boot" at the bottom, and the vacuum bag collar (the part the bag actually attaches to) at the top of it. You will need to remove the cloth outer bag from your old part, and put it onto the new "Boot". The cloth bag connects the "boot" with a special zip tie, which is Kirby Vacuum Bag Clamp. Kirby Part # 196599S. Where it is possible to remove the bag clamp without breaking it, I will warn you that this is no easy task. Spare yourself the aggravation of having to try and remove the clamp, and just cut the bag clamp with a knife or scissors.

You will also have to remove the top of the bag collar at the top of the cloth bag by releasing the fill tube from the inside of the cloth bag.

All of the parts are located on our website, www.govacuum.com. If you have any questions about the repair, you can get me on a live help, chat service located in the top right corner of our website. I'd be happy to walk you through this.

Thanks,

How to use air pump attachment kirby sentria


Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic cup with two hooks on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier.

Is there a reusable bag for a Kirby Gsix


Kirby salesmen have told many that the new polypropalene bags are reusable, however they from what i can tell are not. sure you can empty them like you could any other bag but filtration is going to be greatly reduced as well as air flow which will greatly reduce cleaning ability as kirbys need air flow to work properly. also reusing these bags could possibly damage machine since it is having to work harder.

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

Upholstry set up for ultimate g kirby.


Remove the entire cloth bag assembly and put the hose on the side where the bag came from. Remove the power nozzle and put the intake guard onto the front. (this is in your attachment set...the only one with little hooks that sit on the bar in front) You can change from the long handle to the short if you'd like also. You get the handles off by pushing the "seatbelt button" located at the rear bottom of the handle and pulling the handle straight up and out. Now, put your spray gun on the hose. Don't forget the little suds nozzle that goes on the end of the spray gun. I like to use a half and half solution of Kirby shampoo and water in the gun. It makes a nice dry foam that only wets the surface of the furniture. If you use more water, it takes longer to dry.

Kirby G 6 but it only blows air out, no suction. Also how do you detach the cloth bag to wash it?


I have the solution for the cloth bag laundering process...

Here is a link to my guide for cleaning the Kirby cloth bag...

http://reviews.ebay.com/DEODORIZING-CLEA...

It should be helpful. :0)

The Tech Drive problem SHOULD be able to be fixed easily and fairly cheaply by a vac shop or Kirby distributor. There is an adjustment that needs to be made, but it shouldn't require purchasing any parts.
