The vacuum bag's boot and the power head or hose with piece protruding from it must be hooked up or the motor will not start.

There is a switch on the bottom front that must be pushed in at the same time the slider switch where the bag's boot connects and turns must be slid to its max.

That is where it must be very clean for if that switch will not move the motor will not start.

Also, the electrical cords on that model were not a good make and one side only on the plug to the vacuum would always have no continuity.

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: kirby sentria belt install

Make sure to follow this sequence (starting from the nozzle off and green arrows on the knob and label matching):
1. Turn the knob all the way to match the red arrows (make sure that as you are doing so the hook inside of the nozzle hoes through the belt and stretches it - you will feel that knob is prettu hard to turn)
2. Put the nozzle on the unit and fix it in the place with the latch.
3. Turn the knob back to match green arrows

SOURCE: Hose for G3 Kirby doesn't fit Sentria

Yes G3 and G4 had different gasket thus the suction blower connector connecting Kirby hose to the unit on later models is different. You do not need to replace entire hose but just the plastic part that connects to the vacuum. You can find it HERE. To remove old connector you may have to submerge the end of the hose into hot water (not to hot to touch) so the vinyl becomes soft and you can bend it in with finger bringing plastic end over the lip on the molded end of the hose.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Kirby Sentria vacuum -- can't figure out how to hook up main hose to vacuum floors

First you need to press the foot pedal for the height adjustment all the way down to lift the front of the vacuum off the floor. On the front top of the vacuum where the LED lights are is a cover. That section will lift up by lifting just below the LED's. Once it's lifted up there are some visual instructions, but here's what they are saying. The little circle on the front divided with the word KIRBY is the belt release. The section of the circle with the word on it will pull out. Like a wind-up flashlight it will turn from lining up with the green arrow counter clockwise 360 degrees and lining up with the red arrow. This takes a little pressure to turn it. Now just above this circle, under the LED bonnet, there is a lever that holds this whole front end on. It must be turned also counter clockwise to remove and front then slips off. The reverse would be used to put the beater roller portion back on. Also this would be the way to slip on the hose attachment to **** through it instead. I hope this is a little clearer.

How do i hook up the upholstery cleaner attachment up and use it?


First the bag assembly and head (or hose) must be removed. The hose fits onto the motor outlet in place of the bag. You will see a small arrow on the motor end of the hose. Line the arrow up with the "bump" on the metal fan housing and turn it clockwise to snap it in place. Be sure it is fully in place, or the motor will not run. Your attachment box contains an air intake guard which goes on the front in place of the head. Remember - the motor also will not run with the fan exposed. Turn the motor on and blow any dust out of the hose before putting the spray gun on the end of the hose. To make foam, the small foam screen must be attached to the spray gun outlet.

How do i hook up my upholster cleaner


The parts needed for upholstery cleaning should be in the attachment box. First remove the rug nozzle (or hose) , from the motor unit. Next remove the entire bag assembly - grip the lower housing and turn it counterclockwise to remove. The attachment hose can now be placed on the motor outlet. Look for a small arrow on the hose connector and line it up with the small "bump" on the metal fan housing, and turn it clockwise to install. The air intake guard is placed on the front in place of the rug head. Turn the motor on to blow dust out of the hose and fan chamber prior to placing the spray gun on the end of the hose. Be sure to put the small "suds screen" on the nozzle of the spray gun to produce foam. Place the foam onto the area to be cleaned, and massage it into the fabric with a sponge or towel. Allow it to dry thoroughly before vacuuming it out.

Kirby sentria


remove the cloth bag from the bottom it twists counter clockwise, un clip the bag from the top remove the head piece, turn the belt lifter clockwise and release the lever to remove the head, take off the head, in your attachments there should be a screen that covers the impeller that the belt rides on it goes on like the brush head, put your hose onto the bag port by turning clockwise. there it is it will not work without the screen cover. thanks Rene

Converting to shampoer


Starting with the shampooer brushroll,slip the belt over the brushroll,and install the brushroll into the bottom of tray.Install the brushroll housing over the brushroll,and looking thru the opening in the back of housing,turn the belt lifter counterclockwise untill the hook inside picks up the belt.Raise the height adjuster on the machine to it's highest settind.Install the entire assembly to the front of machine,and lock it down.Turn the belt lifter knob clockwise until the belt drops onto shaft.The elbow end of hose snaps into center of tray.There is a small plastic screen(size of a quarter)that fits onto the opening at tank.Without this screen,you wont get foam,only wet solution.There is a foam pad that must be installed at the air inlet opening at tank.Without this,dirt will enter tank,clogging it.Install tank onto blower side of machine.Lower height adjuster all the way down.You should now be ready to go.
