Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
I was told all the G model attachments would also fit the Sentria. The Sentria seems to have a thicker gasket which makes the hose difficult to attach. Do I need to buy a Sentria hose?
Yes G3 and G4 had different gasket thus the suction blower connector connecting Kirby hose to the unit on later models is different. You do not need to replace entire hose but just the plastic part that connects to the vacuum. You can find it HERE. To remove old connector you may have to submerge the end of the hose into hot water (not to hot to touch) so the vinyl becomes soft and you can bend it in with finger bringing plastic end over the lip on the molded end of the hose.
