    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 .

Is there a manual I can download online for the

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.

Kirby Ultimate Diamond Edition
You can cal the Kirby factory to request a new owner’s manual and they will describe how to use the vacuum on hardwood floors. There is a felt piece as wide as the brushroll area that will clip on to the bottom of the revolving brush area so that you hard wood floors don’t get scratched. The Kirby head will dial off and the Kirby head will come off and the attachment hose will connect to the front of the Kirby and that is how you use the attachments. Also contact your local Kirby vac dealer. 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.
