    I had the same problem,you need to install a NEW FAN KIT //it contains a fan, a new drive arbor(the cone shaped end that drives the belt) and a new KIRBY BELT after markets sucks,if you are mechanically inclined it will take you about 15 minutes reason is that the arbor wears out changing it's diameter//thus tension on the belt and it get's "glazed" causing the belt to slip//another possibility is the brush roller//the ball bearings dry out and cause ALOT of resistance causing to belt to slip on the ARBOR/ take the brush roller out of the head and try to turn the end caps . IF they feel tight or rough you have to replace the roller also.

I would check the brush roller and make sure it turns good and replace the belt on it . When you smell burning rubber most of the time it is the belt .

Take a look at the help article here. If bristles are worn you may need to install the brush roll in a different position (details HERE) or purchase a new brush roll.

Is there a manual I can download online for the
Kirby Ultimate G Series Diamond Edition, Model G7D?


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My suggestion is that you contact the Kirby Co in Cleveland listed below and they will instruct you either to down load a owner’s manual or they will mail one out to you, there might be a local Kirby dealer in your area that might have a manual as well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
