I don't understand how to get the kirby belt on!

I don't understand how to get the kirby belt on. I read the instruction manual and it doesn't explain anything. When I think I have the belt on right, I turn on the vacume and the roller thing on the bottom is not spinning.

It's very easy: take off the nozzle, make sure the green arrows allign, then turn the knob anti clockwise untill the red arrows allign, make sure the belt is on the hook[ look at the back of the nozzle and loock in the hole to see if the belt on the hook. Now and only now you put the nozzle back onto the machine. the you turn the knob clockwise untill the green arrows allign...........

How do I change my kirby g4 to sweep/mop mode?


Turn the belt lifter to red arrows matching to sweep the kitchen floor. This stops the brushroll from turning and allows you to use straight suction. There is a hard floor pad available...see the link to my guide and you may find one for sale...
As for mopping...I just dump a small bit of soapy water on the floor and run my Kirby shampooer (with no solution in the tank) on the lowest setting to scrub, then I dry mop behind it to pick up the excess water. There really are no instructions in the manual for scrubbing linoleum, but I just improvised. It splashes a bit, but better than getting down on hands and knees. Here is a guide to hook up the shampooer...

The G5 manual is out of print by the Kirby Company, but the machine is exactly the same as the G6. Here is the guide for changing the belt and if you look around when you're reading it, you'll see where to buy a manual.
