Replacing brush roller on my KIrby g6 limited edition

You need a new belt. When the green light goes out, that means your brushroll has stopped spinning. Here's how to change it....

Even if you just replaced the belt, this guide will help you make sure that you got the brushroll back in the right way.

Hope it helps....

Roller brush doesn't move

Here is a online's for the G series Kirbys. They're similar enough that it should help. Pay special attention to the belt lifting's exactly the same as for the Heritage II, and it's also where I think your problem lies. I have a Heritage II manual available too! Hope I have helped...
