COntrol of the connection of the bag at the bottom of the machine that must be against the housing rotated are, there is also a microswitch used for safety, but there is a second micro switch that sits in front of the vacuum cleaner housing near the air intake as a push button which is operated next near to the hoseconnection by a pin.

SOURCE: What do the numbers on the Kirby G5 beater bar end

The numbers on the beater bar end caps are used to lower the brush down as the bristles wear down. When you bought the machine, the brush roller started in the 1 setting. One year later, after the bristles have worn down, you can move the numbers to 2, then 3, etc.

It's a pretty neat concept by Kirby, it prolongs the life of the roller brush significantly.

Hope this helped you,

Kirby vacuum-The beater bar is turning, but the light is not on. Is something else wrong?


Check to make sure the magnet on the roller is on the side with the coil (this activates the light). You may have installed the roller with the wrong ends in the opposite sides.

Belt is on roller. Not sure how and how to reattach


When you put the beater bar back in have the belt hook in the normal operating position. Hold the whole beater bar housing upside down and turn the hook. It will grab the belt. Once it does, keep on turning. It will get tough to do, but turn it until you can't go anymore. Then put it all back together!

The brush isn't spinning


the belt is broke. you can buy a new one for around 5-10 dollars at target or walmart, or loews or homedepot.take the screws of the bottom panel to expose belt. you will have to pull out the beater bar to replace the belt. just pull on it after the bottom plate is removed the beater bar just slides out. slide the new belt down the beater bar then pull the belt over the spinning pin. now stretch the beater back to its original position it should slide right in. replace the bottom plate and your back in business

Can't seem to pick up small items like lemon pips with Kirby G5. It just runs over them or pushes them backwards and forwards.


It sounds like your belt is broken, OR your beater bar is rotating but has not been adjusted downward to reach the carpet pile. Check by running the vacuum and looking to see if the beater is moving.

Beater Bar Does not turn


YOU MAY HAVE A POSSIBLE BAD BELT OR THE MOTOR THAT RUNS THE BAR MAY BE BAD, THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE SWITCH THAT TURNS ON THE BAR MAY BE BAD. OR A WIRE COULD HAVE COME OFF THE MOTOR. i THINK YOU DO KNOW THAT THE BEATER BAR DOES NOT RUN WHEN ON WOOD FLOORS.

Belt burning


the beater bar probably needs to be removed & cleaned. the shaft & bearings get bound up with hair, string, etc.. with the belt off the bar, it should spin fairly easily. if it's hard to turn,(belt off) then it's bound up.
