The green light is not coming on and kirby is not sucking


HI There,

When the green lights do not come on when vacuuming with a Kirby, this indicates that your belt has either broken or fallen off. There is a magnet on the beater bar that activates the LED green light when it's spinning.

Here's a helpful video tutorial that we recorded, that will show you how to replace the belt, as well as perform basic maintenance on your roller brush to prolong the life of your belt as long as possible.

Kirby G4 Toe-Touch Control pedal jammed


Flip the Kirby over,and you will find screws that hold the front axle in place.Remove the screws and the front axle.Debris may be caught in the mechanism.Clean the debris out,and use WD-40 to lubricate the mechanism.May be able to do this without removing the axle,but removing it allows for better cleaning or for identifying broken or missing parts.

Kirby G4 without suction


change your belt, if there is suction from the hose, and you cant see any blockages in the area where the brush roll is then you need to change the belt, even if it isnt broken. putting your hand over the nozzle to feel the suction is not the way to tell if it has suction.
