Question about Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

G5 does not suck:)

Inherited this G5; mother-in-law said the motor was out. I plugged it in and it comes on, but it does not seem to be doing anything but turning the roller. It may just need a good cleaning. Plan to replace the bag and try it again; the drive part is not working, which ofr me is not the biggest deal - I just need it to vaccum the carpet. Kirby is a great vaccum and I really wantthis one to work for me.

HI my mothers dyson, doesn't seem to be sucking up fluff that i could pick up, it does seem to pick up but not a lot.

look inside you will find other filters that are clogged .. often they are washable ... sometimes you have to replace them .. when they get clogged then pickup is not good and the motor can overheat

Kirby blowing out aire

Unplug the vacuum and clean out the hose that goes from the beater to the intake. The hose is either plugged with debis or has become disconnected or BOTH. You may have to use a screw driver to remove the plate over the beater brush.
