Kirby G4D belt change . haven't changed the belt in years ! not sure who it goes on, or around the the spool housing ??

Changing belt on Kirby is a bit complicated. Kirby Co. just did not make it easy for their customers. You have to be careful when installing the brush roll back. Brush roll end caps have to be put back a certain way. For detailed instructions with pictures go HERE.

Good Luck,

Smells (burnt rubber) like it's overheating when I vacuum

I would check the brush roller and make sure it turns good and replace the belt on it . When you smell burning rubber most of the time it is the belt .

How do i change the brush and belt

Starting withh the brushroll,slip belt over brushroll.The brushroll will only go on one way.The caps on the ends of the brushroll are different sizes so it will only go on one way.Make sure the adjustment screws face outward toward the floor.Install the brush roll into the bracket.Install the bracket onto brushead,making sure the tabs on the bracket fit onto the tabs in the brushead.Turn brushead around,and latch the two latches on either side.Then turn the belt lifter to pick up the belt,looking thru the back opening.Raise the Kirby to it's highest setting.Re-install the brushead,and lock it down tight,but not too tight.Then,turn the belt lifter knob all the way clockwise to drop the belt onto shaft.

How to change a band on a kirby vacuum?

I think you mean belt??

Take the nozzle of, remove the brush roll, put the a new belt over the brush roll, re-install and put the bottom plate on, making sure that the belt is in the middle of the brush roll. Turn the big knob on the front until it locks, when it grabs the belt it will be hard to turn. Re-install the nozzle on the machine and lock it down. Turn the knob again all of the way, this will release the belt unto the pulley.
