Actually it can. If the machine has a defect but the good news is that is has a 3 year warranty. Take it to a Kirby authorized repair shop not a vac and sew and they will fix it right up....I am a factory authorized service tech for the Kirby co.

How To Attach Carpet Shampooer To Your Kirby Generation 4 (G4) Upright.


Hello,

This is an excellent, easy to follow video presentation of attaching the carpet cleaner to your Kirby Generation 3 Upright Vacuum Cleaner. Please note that the model being used in the video is a newer model named the Sentria, but the process of attaching the carpet extractor attachment is identical on the Kirby Sentria and the Kirby Generation 4. The only major difference is that the Generation 4 does not have the lever that extends out to turn the belt to off. On the Generation 4 this is dont by turning the entire white square with the Kirby logo on it in the front of the vacuum cleaner.

Please feel free to ask for a repair clarification if you have a question on how to attach the carpet shampooer. I'm always, more then happy to answer any follow up questions there may be.

Kirby generation 3 won't vacuum. It runs and


You may have suction but if the belt is worn the roller brush won't spin and therefore won't pick up anything. You can get a replacement belt here:

PUll the roller brush out and make sure it turns freely by hand. If not clean all hair and debris off the roller brush, you might also remove the end caps (one at a time) and clean the hair out from the bearings underneath the cap (in the shop I use WD-40 and a non-serated pairing-knife). Replace caps they only go one way. If you can not free up the brush you'll have to replace it.

If the brush spins freely probably just need a new belt they stretch out over time.
