roro, There are two possibilites: One is that each hose does something different (suck and exhaust) or both suck. Find the one that sucks. That should be the one that you hook tools to now. If the attachment has an electrical connection, it will be needed to do scrubbing. If the shampoo unit is from a different brand, you'll have to make up something to do that. If you do, be certain that the connection is fully taped up so no liquid can get to it!!

SOURCE: Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment

You need a new belt. When the green light goes out, the brush is not spinning. The belt is stretched and needs replaced. Here are detailed belt changing instructions....

SOURCE: Vacuum doesn't vaccum!

Sounds like there is a clog near where the hose conects to the lower brush part.. Try to look up in there.. Under the brush there should be an opening that goes into the hose.. There might be a clog there..

SOURCE: i have a kirby g4 how do i make it blow air

Hi There,

Here's a step by step guide explaining what you have to do to change your Kirby from a vacuum into a blower:


Step 1. Make Sure That Your Kirby is Unplugged from the wall. Remove the front nozzle of the machine by lifting the housing that contains the headlight upwards. Now rotate the belt lifter from the green "Belt On" setting to the red "Belt Off" position:

Step 2. With the belt lifter turned to the red "Belt Off" setting, Turn the knob at the top of the bell shaped agitator housing to release the brush housing from the vacuum:

Step 3. Locate the attachment called the saftey cup that attaches on the Kirby in the exact same place as the brush housing did. This part does two things; Activates the safety switch to the left of the fan, and secondly covers the opening to the fan chamber to prevent anything from getting inside the fan housing and damaging it.

Step 4. Once you install the safety cup it is a good idea to check if the vacuum is working. If it is not (assuming it did work with the nozzle) - check if safety cup switch actuator isn't broken (see picture).

If it works then but it does not when you install the hose (next step) you will know that you did not turn the hose far enough.

Step 5. Take the bag off the Kirby. On the bigger end of the hose there is a line that you have to match with a little bump on the kirby fan housing (marked with red dots). Push the end of the hose over the Kirby exhaust as far as it can go.

Step 6. Turn this hose end clockwise (you may have to apply considerable force).

c0e4dfe.jpg
Step 7. It has to be turned far enough to press another safety switch that is on the unit just behind the exhaust neck.


a8e50c1.jpg
Step 7. You are done and ready to use it as a blower. We would recommend turning it on outside. Hose may have some dust accumulated on the inside and it may blow a lot of dust in the first few seconds of use. Also shake the hose well while outside to loosen any dust/dirt accumulations on the inside.

    Be very careful when blowing dust out of computers or other electronics.
  1. Dirt from inside of the hose may damage components.
  2. Airflow is so strong that it may break circuit boards if they are not well mounted around the perimeter.
  3. Using Kirby a lot of static electricity may be generated that may cause circuit failure due to electrostatic discharge (harmless to people - deadly to electronics).

    30fa7e1.jpg
    NEVER operate blower with the nozzle on. There are 3 important reasons for that:
    1. Kirby is designed to have much higher RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) with the hose or safety cup so it will push more air than with the nozzle.
    2. If you use kirby as a blower with the nozzle - dust and dirt that is in the nozzle from vacuuming carpets and/or rugs will be blown into the air.
    3. If there is nothing (no nozzle no safety cup) Kirby vacuum simply will not turn on.

I really hope that the above instructions were helpful to you in converting your Kirby into a blower. If you have a question on any of the steps, please feel free to use the comment field to ask them, I'm always more then happy to answer any follow up questions you may have.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate the repair helpful, or by leaving feedback for me. This is really appreciated by the Fixya community when a repair was able to solve your problem.

Thanks again,

How to attach pet tool adapter? Do I disconnect the flex hose (handle end)? If so, how?


Hi Sarah! The flex hose doesn't need to be removed to use the pet tool adapter. Just attach the pet tool to hose and begin vacuuming.

Remove hose from 66T6


I know how frustrating this can be. Try turning the hose and wands in opposite directions where they connect. Once the hose and wand is separated you'll be able to connect the pet hair attachment.

Here's a quick link to obtaining a copy of the user guide if you've misplaced yours:

Hose in DYSON too tight and hard to pull out


The problem is not a twisted hose. The hose itself is way too stiff. It pulls the vacuum around instead of expanding to reach. I hate this hose and it's too bad, because the vacuum works well, but trying to use the hose attachment it futile because it just doesn't stretch out unless the vacuum is pinned up against something to keep it from rolling and tipping over.

Want to blow air out to inflate mattress


You need to remove the main head with the brushes from the front and install the safety cup. The remove the bag by unclipping from the top and disconnecting the boot end from the bottom with an outwards twist. Now attach the hose to the exposed outlet; attached the thin nozzel designed for inflating to the hose and switch on - you will feel air being expelled from the hose.
Air, which normally contains dirt and dust because you're hoovering is blown into the bag, but now with the bag removed; the air is blown into your hose, through the attachment and into what ever needs inflating.

I received my dirt devil canister vacuum - vision pet for Christmas and have only used it several times. I am having trouble with it not suctioning very well. I have the max suctioning turned all the way...


Change out the bag. Check the internal air passages for blockage. Check air flow without the bag and pick--up hose in place--should be quite forceful. Attach the bag and try again. If ok, attach the hose and try again. At some point, you should find a large blockage of debris. Hope that helps!

No vaccum at the hose attachment, the main powerhead has vaccum


You may have a blockage somewhere. Take the U-Bend (next to the right-hand wheel if you stand behind the vacuum cleaner) off. It is attached to the vacuum with a rectangular-shaped clip - it's purple. It is the pipe that is attached under the long gray hose. After that take out the AI Valve (the pipe above the right-hand side wheel) that has two purple buttons to remove it. Take the wand off and look through it - you should see light coming through the other end even though the wand is not straight all the way. If you can't see light through the other end the blockage is in the wand. Stretch the hose out and make sure there are no dark spots inside - those would be blockages. If all else fails call the Dyson helpline, they'll help you.

How do I attach upholstery parts?


Remove the main head and put on the air guard.
Take of the bag assembly and attach the hose.
Mix up the solution in the "Suds o gun".
Attach this to the end of the hose.
When you switch on, foam will dispense from the gun.
Gently sponge this into the furniture.

Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment


You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.

sounds like you need to attach the air hose

with reservoir in place you clip on the lid with tubes attached, one of them goes down to the floor cleaning nozzle, the other tube should be about 20cm long with an end piece,

this is the air hose and it fits into a small hole under the reservoir on the motor housing (the heavy mains powered part that clips onto the big recovery drum that sits on floor)

it's mentioned briefly in the manual, here it is in pdf form http://www.box.net/shared/rnh39ffjcq
