Mary, It sounds like you didn't get the bag on properly. When putting it on the neck you must turn it until the small lever on the side of the machine is depressed. This is a safety switch so that the unit cannot be run without a bag. Once it is properly installed it should run for you.

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.

Take the front of the kirby off (the part that has the brush roller in it) and look in the big hole where the fan impeller is. Most likely this plastic part is cracked and needs to be replaced. Just turn the metal rod sticking out of the hole and the outer ring with the fan blades on it will be cracked off of the inner piece. It is a cheap part (usually $12-$15) but getting to it is not for the mechanically disadvantaged.

kirby style 2 bags if it is indeed a bagged unit, some where special order with what is called a shake out bag, if your outer bag has a short zipper with a cloth pocket it is a shake out bag in which you take the assembly loose from the machine and open the bottom of the metal empter and take out side and basically shake out the dirt. and use the pocket to help get out the dirt. but most of these machines did take a style 2 bag in which you unzip the outer bag and pull the paper bag away from the tube and reinsert new one onto tube and finally zip up bag
