SOURCE: broken power head belt

Not sure which one you have, need complete model number. You can go, click on the parts link, enter you model number, click on the powerehead link. A parts list will come up along with a picture breakdown of it.
Alot of them the part covering the light is just snapped into place, push in on the side andback to release it. Remove the 2 screws, use a flatblade and stick in the slot on each side from the bottom and pry up to release it.
The other type, you tak out the 2 screws from the bottom, then on the back and each side are release tabs that you pry out to release.

SOURCE: cant rember how to replace the belt on the power head

1)First, you turn the square belt lifter on the front of the power nozzle until the red arrows line up (belt off of the Kirby's driveshaft but on the "hook" inside the power nozzle) 2)Remove the power head from the front of the machine. Now that it is off the Kirby, you can turn the square belt lifter until the green arrows line up. (Belt on, which means on the driveshaft on the front of the Kirby when the power nozzle is on the Kirby which makes the brushes spin. Now that the power nozzle is off of the Kirby, the belt isn't actually resting on anything but the green arrows will still point to belt ON ) This removes the belt from the "hook" so that it can be slipped off the brush roll. 3)Turn the power nozzle upside down and release the two clips that hold the metal baseplate on and remove the baseplate. 4)Grab the brushroll and pull it out of the power head. Slide the new belt onto the center of the brushroll. It will hang doesn't have to stretch around anything yet. MAKE SURE THAT THE BRUSHROLL SPINS FREELY!! If it doesn't, you'll burn all new belts quickly due to the added strain on the belt. 5)Look at the ends of the brushroll. The brushroll has three height should see notches AND NUMBERS on the sides of the brushroll's end caps. ONE notch (also #1) FACE UP on BOTH sides is the first setting and should be used when the roller is new. Three notches is the last setting used before a new roller is needed and should be used if the brushes are short and worn. Put the brushroll back in, making ABSOLUTELY SURE sure that the SAME NUMBER of notches and the same raised number on the edge are FACE UP on BOTH sides. This is important, as the brushroller will be unbalanced if inserted wrong. Also, one end cap of the brushroll is larger than the other and will only fit onto the larger notch in the power nozzle. 6)Replace the baseplate by fitting the front clips into place and then push it down in back and secure it with the two rear swivel clips. Make sure it fits securely down over the bumper on all sides with no suction leakage. 7)Turn the belt lifter to where the RED arrows line up, making sure that the inner "hook" grabs the belt and stretches it up while you are turning it. Once you have the belt stretched up, put the power nozzle back onto the Kirby and lock it in place. 8)NOW...turn the belt lifter back to GREEN. If the little green light on the power nozzle lights up when you turn it on, CONGRATULATIONS!!! The brushroll is spinning!!

I have a DC32 animalpro and there is very little suction on the large carpet cleaner head. When I use another head the suction works normally. I have checked for blockages and there are none. Any...

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC32 Animalpro. If the turbine head doesn't seem to be working correctly, and is not blocked, you may need to wash the cleaner's filter. Under normal use, this needs to be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow the filter to dry completely before replacing it - this may take up to 24 hours. For guidance on washing the filter, please see the guide linked below:

This should allow you to resolve your issue without further assistance, but if your problem with the turbine head persists, please get in touch with us directly. If it's necessary to replace the turbine head, it should be covered by our 5-year warranty, as long as the cleaner has been used in accordance with the terms and conditions listed in the user guide. You can call us free on 08002980298 - our Helpline is available from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Kind regards,
