Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Vac blows air out rather than sucking air in.

I can't seem to get the vac to **** the air in, it seems to act as a blower rather than a vacum.

    It had happen to us only 2 times when technician switched wires when re-connecting to power switch (inside the unit). For it just start spinning other direction with no one actually doing anything to it - not sure what happened.
    I am sure we can find the problem and fix this but we have to have it here.
    (just to make sure if you are using the hose you are attaching it instead of the nozzle NOT in place of the bag...)

    Did you do ANYTHING inside. Did you reconnect wires?

My shop vac is not sucking anything only blowing air out of the open hole where the hose should go if I wanted to blow something. I want it to vacuum not blow out. The filter sleeve and dry cloth are...


I just had the same problem, the vac wouldn't suck in. Turned out to be because the filter was WET. It works great when I take the filter off before sucking up water or liquids! Not sure if this applies in your case, but definitely something to keep in mind. : )

Have a Sears shop vac, mod 113.172. The motor doesn't take in


If the motor turns, you should have suction. Put the hose on the exhaust side of the motor if there is a connection, and try to blow it out. If you can't, try using a garden hose or toilet snake to clear the hose. IF the hose is clear, and the problem continues, check the float in the cage below the motor. It should be down at the bottom of the cage. Also, if you haven't been using a bag or foam cover for the cage, it is possible for leaves to clog the motor.
