Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

I want to kill my kirby

Why is my belt catching opposite of how it is supposed to? I just bought a new belt tried to put it on, and it is catching backwards. The belt catches when the arrows are lined up in the red position, no matter what I do the belt will not go on when the green arrows are lined up. The belt won't spin when the vacuum is on.. in either the green or the red. Please help before I kill this vacuum.

Vibrating – that usually happens on some short fiber or very dense carpets. When nozzle goes against the carpet fiber Kirby starts jumping. Try vacuuming the same place while facing opposite way.

Belt – red arrows means DISENGAGE. When you install the nozzle on the Kirby unit while green arrows match you will not be able to turn it on red. You must follow sequence (starting from nozzle off the Kirby, green arrows match, Kirby front lifter all the way up by pressing one of the pedals):
1. Turn Kirby knob to match red arrows. You will feel some tension and hook inside of the nozzle is supposed to catch the belt and stretch forming a loop for the Kirby shaft.
2. Put the nozzle on the Kirby and lock it on with the latch.
3. Twist the knob back to match the green arrows. YOU ARE DONE

Go to GoodVac.com Kirby vacuum online manual. There are some small details that you may want to pay attention to if you have removed the brush roll to install a new belt. Also there are some pictures that will help you understanding the process.

Putting a new belt on my Kirby Sentria
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The belt install on a Kirby is to raise the height adjustment to the highest level and then dial the belt off counter clockwise so it is loose and not on the fan pulley, release the top lever on the bell housing, then remove the bottom plate and unhook the brushroll on one side, slide the old belt off and then slide the new one on, replace the brushroll with the screws facing the carpet and re-hook the bottom plate on the Kirby. Then take the bell housing and hook that back on to the Kirby and lock it down. Then dial the belt on clockwise all the way and the belt should be on the fan pulley. The belt should be ready to go, plug in your Kirby and then do the step down on the vacuum height adjustment until the tone changes, then try to see id it picks up, if not go one more height adjustment and that should be the correct setting.

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.

Belt not locking


With the nozzle off of the vac., turn the big knob on the front until it locks. (will only turn one direction) Put the nozzle back on the vac, lock it down, turn the knob again and the belt will be on the spindle and you should be set to go. I hope tho that you put on a new belt, they stretch after a short time and will start slipping under load.

Brush


Put the belt over the brush roll, set it in the middle, put the brush roll into the head and put on the bottom plate. Turn the big knob on the front of the nozzle to catch the belt, turn it until it locks into place. Then put the nozzole onto the front of the vac, then turn the knob all of the way the other direction, it will put it on the motor pulley.
