How do I detach the cloth bag from my Kirby G3 Vaccuum to wash it

Someone I lent my vaccuum to threw out a full interior paper bag but forgot to replace it before using the vaccuum again and now I need to wash the cloth bag. I can remove it from the top clip but cant see how to release the bottom portion of the cloth bag from where it is held in place by the plastic ring. Please Help! Thanks.

I would clean the bag by blowing it out with compressed air (lightly). If you do wash it, do it by hand in room temp water and air dry. I'm not too sure how to remove the whole bag on that model. You should call your local vacuum dealer to inquire, and ask the same question you asked here on Fixya.

What does a flashing light on the dc28 vaccuum mean


There are a few things a flashing light could mean. One is that the beater bar has something stuck on it. Or, it could be that the bag or canister is full. Then again, maybe something is stuck in one of the intakes. Be careful when checking the beater bars. Unplug the vacuum before touching them, you wouldn't want your hands getting injured or fingers broken:( Clear anything that is wrapped around the beater bars, hair, string, etc., and then check the hoses to make sure nothing is stuck in them. If you have suction, the interior is clear. If not, then check in there to make sure nothing is clogging it. Good luck and be careful:)

Why won't my hoover u6434 900 turn on?


Hello! The vacuum has a thermal protector sensor that will automatically shut off the vacuum when it is overheated. The vacuum should turn back on once it has cooled down. This can take up to an hour. Overheating is usually caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Below are steps you may follow to check your vacuum for blockages.

1. Locate the primary filter behind the side grille. Wash the filter, squeeze it out and allow 24 hours to air dry outside of the vacuum. It should be washed about every other month.

2. Locate the secondary filter located in the vacuum base under the paper bag. The secondary filter can be washed in the same manner as the primary filter.

3. Replace the bag if it is full.
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Remove the bottom plate and brush-roll. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.

Hope this helps!

Change motor brushes on Fein vacuum


If the vaccuum was used with large amount of fine dust , most times the filters are largely shut beaten ,beware also of the electric field look its color to get a indication of the expectation of the remaining running time of the motor. 80% chance by use of fine dust the motor can better be replaced instead of replace brushes because the brushes are in a short time again shorted because of 1 collector in the armature , or get an equivalent motor if you can get FIXAPART motor or a original replacement if the remainder is still in reasonable condition.
Some brands of vaccuums uses the same motor could be sometimes an option because of the price.

Bag indicator light won't go off, therefore vaccuum cleaner won't run. It acts as if the bag is full even with a new bag.


the bag indicator is either rusted out or broken. it only realy's on a little spring that bounces up and down so dont trust those things

Gen 3 model Kirby vaccuum won't start


Checked your bag if they are full, if bagless check your filter. If still not working maybe the protected temperature fuse blown out. You need to open it and replace the protected blown fuse.

Decreased suction


you might have a clog, to try and unclog the lines, you need to unplug the unit, and remove the bag compartment. Then take a shop vac using the hose attachment hold it into the attachment door where there is low suction and try to draw the clog out the way it went in.

Hoover U5468-900 WindTunnel Supreme suction is suddenly poor


The other possibility is there is a blockage in the foot. these models have dual channel air flow (windtunnel) and become blocked when not cleaned depending on use. under the roller there is a cavity that can be removed for cleaning. a hot motor can be caused by poor air flow.

My husband threw out my motor bag for my Delonghi Wet and dry M-31. Can I run the vacuum without this protecting the motor?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
No…. I would advise NOT running the machine without the filter because you will burn up the motor. You can use a paper bag with a rubber band to slide over the motor to protect it from dust and also if you have a foam type filter – you can put the foam filter on first, then the paper bag then the rubber band, or if you have a cartridge filter you can run it with just the cartridge filter bur would suggest cleaning the cartridge filter after each use – also you can place the paper bag method over the cartridge filter as well or call the Delonghi factory and order the part or they will direct you to a local dealer, Info listed below:
