Hi Mindy,
Make sure that your tobacco is not too wet. Set some tobacco out (about the amount you plan to roll) and let it air dry for about 5 - 15 minutes. You'll have to figure out how long to let it dry as your home temperature is different than mine. Don't let it dry too much though. Give this a try. It works for me.
Take care,

Dennis Mason

    I'm having this problem as well, and I've noticed alot of play (wobble back-and-forth) in the injector as I crank. I've used mineral oil (although not too sure if its safe) to lubricate all the moving parts with some sucess, but after it dries, I run into the problem again. I think I've narrowed the problem to either the injector guide (the part that's screwed into the action arm) being worn down, or possibly the action arm being bent. I'm going to buy each peice, replace one by on and let you know the result.

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.

How do i change the fill tube


Cut the old fill tube from the lower housing and remove the top adapter from the old tube. Clean the bag and housing to be sure the spout the tube attaches to is clean. Be certain to use the fill tube used in the Generation 3 and 4 models which has a wire in it. Wet the lower few inches of the tube and screw it fully onto it's base in the lower housing. The upper adapter can be attached with cable ties.

I have a Kirby Heritage 84. Great condition except the part that connects the innerbag is missing. I don't even know what it is called. I can open the vacuum cleaner bottom and see that the part is...


The Heritage 84 had two different bag assemblies available. One is a dump-out bag. The dirt simply dumps through the bottom. The other is the bagged style which has a full length zipper to open it. Inside it should contain a "bag fill tube", and a top adapter to attach the bag onto. The oval fill tube is no longer available, but a round tube can be installed with a bit of efort.

Dust smell when running g4 kirby


The dusty smell coming from my G4 finally drove me to search out the problem. As it turned out, the fill tube had cracked near the top of the mini emptor (the boot) and dust and crumbs were escaping from the tube and into the cloth bag. I tried to repair the split with duct tape and electrical tape, but to no avail. I finally gave up and ordered a new fill tube online for about $8. This took care of the problem, and the machine works like new with no more dusty smell.

Kirby G4 Vacuum "BOOT"?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

The bottom part of the bag, which you referred to as a "Boot" is actually called a Kirby G4 Mini Em-Tor with Fill Tube Assembly. Kirby Part # 199493S. The part is only available to purchase with the fill tube assembly, this is the part that the disposable paper bag connects to inside the cloth outer bag.

Kirby has redesigned this fill tube, as the original design sometimes would cause the inner fill tube to crack. The Mini Em-Tor Fill Tube Assembly, part 199493S comes already assembled with the "boot" at the bottom, and the vacuum bag collar (the part the bag actually attaches to) at the top of it. You will need to remove the cloth outer bag from your old part, and put it onto the new "Boot". The cloth bag connects the "boot" with a special zip tie, which is Kirby Vacuum Bag Clamp. Kirby Part # 196599S. Where it is possible to remove the bag clamp without breaking it, I will warn you that this is no easy task. Spare yourself the aggravation of having to try and remove the clamp, and just cut the bag clamp with a knife or scissors.

You will also have to remove the top of the bag collar at the top of the cloth bag by releasing the fill tube from the inside of the cloth bag.

All of the parts are located on our website, www.govacuum.com. If you have any questions about the repair, you can get me on a live help, chat service located in the top right corner of our website. I'd be happy to walk you through this.

Thanks,

Emptying the bag


Changing the paper bag...Just rotate the cardboard and pull until it comes off of the fill tube. Note the tabs on the fill tube top and the notches in the cut out circle in the cardboard on the paper bag when reassembling. Try this link for free shampooer directions.....manuals also available.

Rainbow aqua mate II instructions


You have the vacuum and the basin, you put them together just like when you vacuum but don't put water in the basin. There is a large white container that comes with the shampooer. you fill that up with water and then you place the vacuum cleaner and the basin on top of that. Now you will need the water hose (not the one that has the gas pump hadle). Hook that in the same spot that you do for vacuuming. Then you take the shampooing handle( it will have a trigger and a little white bottle and some tubes hooked to it) the one end of it hooks to the water hose and the other end hooks to the wands. There are 2 wands that come with your shampooer. At the end of those the shampooer head will be attached. There are two separate tubes there is a thick tube ( there two tubes fused together) and a thin tube, they hook to the large white container that you fill with water. Just look and you will see where they go. Then there is a tube that hooks to the shampooer head at the bottom. The you take the little bottle and fill it with your shampoo. You should have gotten some clips to hool onto your hose so that you can keep the tubes attached to it so they aren't in the way. You should be set. I hope I helped.

Heats up and produces steam but the release button does not open the flow of steam.


To remedy this, I did the following:
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach 
3) Once all parts are removed, you can see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it cranking against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you fill find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button (not sure if that helped in my case, but it was something I tried along the way). When the brass button moves in and out (again, it won't move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
This worked for my unit!
