Take the bag off (turn it counterclockwise a bit and it will slide off the exhaust). Take it somewhere outside and holding over garbage container open a latch on the bottom of the metal bag bottom part (miniemptor). Now entire bottom will open and dirt and dust will start falling out. If there is a zipper on the bag - open it and insert your hand into sort of a sock that will allow you to grab chunks of dust and push them towards the opening on the bottom without getting your hands too dirty.

My vacumn cleaner stinks when in use, but it is not the bag to full?


I only know how to do things in a systematic approach so if I ask to many questions and this response seems to wordy disregard.

First: What type of stink are we talking about? Burned Rubber like a belt being worn out? Or stink like a junk yard?

Second: Do you use through away bags or just empty the bag and and reuse it?

Third: Does it have any air filters (Hepa stuff like that)?

Fourth: If you remove the bag from the cleaner and run the machine do you still have the stink?

These aren't solutions as much as troubleshooting.

How do I replace a belt in my classic iii kirby vacuum cleaner


The below link leads to an excellent video on replacing the belt. It's for a newer model, but I believe they're pretty much the same.

The "switch" refered to is probably the handle release button.

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.
