SOURCE: Kirby Belt Lifter Assembly

I have tried to get a parts breakdown for your vacuum cleaner with no success. The way that then washers should go is the flat smotth metal washer on the inside followed by the fibre washer and the wavy washer on the outside. The waves are used to bite into the plastic so it cannot work loose.

SOURCE: Belt and lifter getting hot right away on start up.

Hello,
I would say that it is definitely running backwards. I have a guide to replacing the power switch that outlines the reassembly of the Kirby and tells you which carbon brush wire plugs into which hole on the power switch. Each carbon brush has a letter (B or O) and the same two letters are on the switch to help you get the wires back on right. (the "B" attaches to the "B" and the "O" attaches to the "O") Here is the link to the guide and I hope it helps,...

I can't get the screws out to replace the belt on my carpt shampooer...


No screws need to be taken out on a Kirby for a belt change. Take the nozzle off, remove the base plate with the 2 twist locks, pull the brushroll out. Puton the new belt, and re-assemble. Twist the belt lifter around the belt, replace the nozzle, spin the belt lifter back, and go vacuum

My Kirby is not engaging the belt after it was put back on. I took it off to clean brushes and did everything according to the video but the belt will still not engage and green light does not come on.


The belt is not on the motor shaft. Remove the head from the motor unit. With the belt centered on the brushroll, turn the belt lifter a full 3/4 turn counterclockwise to stretch the belt up onto the belt lifter finger. ( Look through the back to be sure the belt is streched into a loop over the finger.) Plce the head back on the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter fully clockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft. Be sure the brushroll is correctly installed in the head. Setting # 1 should face the floor.

Converting to shampoer


Starting with the shampooer brushroll,slip the belt over the brushroll,and install the brushroll into the bottom of tray.Install the brushroll housing over the brushroll,and looking thru the opening in the back of housing,turn the belt lifter counterclockwise untill the hook inside picks up the belt.Raise the height adjuster on the machine to it's highest settind.Install the entire assembly to the front of machine,and lock it down.Turn the belt lifter knob clockwise until the belt drops onto shaft.The elbow end of hose snaps into center of tray.There is a small plastic screen(size of a quarter)that fits onto the opening at tank.Without this screen,you wont get foam,only wet solution.There is a foam pad that must be installed at the air inlet opening at tank.Without this,dirt will enter tank,clogging it.Install tank onto blower side of machine.Lower height adjuster all the way down.You should now be ready to go.

Don't know how to change belt on the 2001 G limited edition, having problem taking off the brush.


Raise the height adjustment to it's highest setting.Turn the belt lifter knob on the brushead counterclockwise till it stops.Remove the brushead,then turn the belt lifter clockwise till it stops,releasing the belt.Turn the brushead around to the back.You will see 2 latches holding the brush plate assembly on.Unlatch those,and remove the brushroll assembly.Remove the brushroll from the plate by bending the tabs at one end to release the brush.Remove the old belt,and slide the new one over the brushroll.If you remove the entire brushroll,install it with the screw heads facing the floor.The ends of the brush roll have different size caps,one end is larger than the other,and one is black,one is white.This is so the brush will only go in one way.
Re-install brushroll assembly,latch it down.Look thru the opening in the back,and turn the belt lifter till you see the hook pick up the belt.Install the entire brushead on the front of the vacuum,and lock it down,then turn the belt lifter to drop the belt onto the shaft.Lower the height adjustment,and you are ready to go.

Kirby ultimate g


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.

Kirby G6 attaching fluffer brush on shampooer


Sure can,

You have two choices,
1.) To use your shampoo attachment, you'll need the fluffer shield, To set up the attachment seperate the tray assembly (the part that holds the roller brush) from the nozzle assembly (the part that attaches to the machine). Now seperate the roller brush from the tray (easiest way is to pull the belt). Insert the roller brush into the fluffer shield (it only goes one way). Insert the fluffer shield with the roller brush installed into the nozzle assembly the plastic shield will be faced towards the front of the machine. Turn belt lifter to where the red arrows match and attach to the front of the machine. Turn belt lifter to where the green arrows match and you should be in business.

2.) Your using the floor buffing attachment it the easiest method just put on like the floor nozzle (thing you vacuum with).

How do i put together my kirby carpet shampoo system?


Vacuum thoroughly before shampooing for maximum cleaning. Then, remove the bag and the Power Nozzle to prepare for shampooing. Turn the Carpet Shampoo System Nozzle Belt Lifter to the right of the center position (fully clockwise) until the green arrows line up. a4bbc62.jpg Slide the slots on the side of the Carpet shampoo system over the outer shoulders of the Carpet Shampoo System Tray. e14fe2e.jpg While pushing up on the Belt with your finger, turn the Belt Lifter left (counter- clockwise looking at it from the front) until the red arrows line up. (The Belt Lifter Hook will catch and stretch the belt.)

Press the bottom Toe Touch Pedal all the way down to raise the front of the Kirby.
