I actually figured this out on my own. Just removed the rubber out seal between the bad and em-tor, then used a screw driver to gently pry the bag out of it's grove. The wire part of the hose actually unscrews from the em-tor. Reverse the process to install the new one. Gotta love Kirby engineering.

Replace the mini emtor on a generation iv kirby upright


To replace a mini-emptor it should come of with a twisting motion. You may have to snap it if it is broken, and be aware in the exhaust port a piece may be left behind that you will have to remove to get the new mini-emptor to attach. There are 3 rivets that this part holds onto and when it is removed you should see the rubber and the 3 rivets. You can see pictures here: Kirby G4 miniemptor instructions.

Have a Kirby Heritage II vacuum. Need to replace a split fill tube. How do I remove the outer cloth bag from the mini-emptor, and then how do I take off the old/attach a new fill tube?


There is no need to remove the outer bag. The fill tube can be removed by cutting it off near the bottom and pulling on the support wire to unwind it from the neck on the mini-emptor. I usually hose down the bag and slosh it around in my laundry sink to clean it. After it dries, the new fill tube can be screwed onto the mini-emptor. You can wet the bottom of the tube with plain water to make it go on more easily. If you screw it on firmly, there is no need for cable ties at the bottom. Re-attach the top adaptor ( bag holder ), and secure it with cable ties.

I have a Kirby Heritage II Turbo and I need a user's manual, but can't find one anywhere. I have to replace the fill tube in the bag and can see the cable tie on top that holds it in place, but don't know...


Taping usually just causes a mess. The mini-emptor has coarse threads on it that the fill tube screws on to. Occasionally there is a cable tie on the bottom which is not really necessary. If you cut the tube near the bottom, you can get hold of it's wire frame and rip it out. After cleaning the threaded area on the mini-emptor, wet one end of the new fill tube with water and screw it well down. The bag top adapter can then be put on and secured with cable ties.

You just check the bag "boot" to see if there is something worn down enough to keep the vacuum from turning it back on. If it is worn, buy a new mini-emptor assembly and install it and your vacuum should work fine.

Do you know how to change a emptor assembly


http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=0&thid=725050 Generic problem for all Vacuums… Do you know how to change an emptor assembly? Posted by smcgee on June 30, 2008 I've got a Kirby G4 and I need to replace the emptor assembly. Do you know how to change it?
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Kirby mini emptor assm can be replaced by going inside of the cloth bag and looking for the ty tie that is hold it onto the clothe outer bag and cut the ty tie to release the mini emptor on the Kirby. The bag @ the bottom has elastic around the bottom and should come right off; it will be tight but should come off. The front of the mini emptor has a gasket so make sure the new one has the same small gasket also, and that will just turn and unhook. You need to find a new ty tie just as long as the one you are removing; either from a local vacuum cleaner store, the Kirby Factory Cust serv (Parts) or try the Home Depot or Menards or a box store similar to those. 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.
