Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

I've broken two belts while using the carpet shampooer on my Kirby G4. I figure the belt must be stretched too tight, but I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.

If the belts are OEM it is probably not the problem. Be sure the brush roll very freely.

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.

I have a very old kirby generation 3 unit that converst to a carpet shampooer. I was attemtping to shampoo the carpets but it does not seem to be picking any of the water back up out of the carpet. What...


make sure the belt on the carpet shampoo aggitator is good, (could be stretched or broken) recommend replacing that belt. also make sure your fan in the front of the machine doesnt have any chips or cracks around the center. (this will cause lower suction) a new belt should cure the problem for you.
