Question about Vacuums
Hi, i got a used kirby g-4 and the brushes dont turn and it has very weak suction,what in the world is wrong with this thing?????????????????????
1. Take the brush roll and belt off the vacuum. Put the head back on the vac.
2. Turn it on and see if the bag inflates with good power. Does it sound normal? This will tell you if the problem is with the motor. If you have a good inflation of the bag and a bad noise in the motor, you need to take it in for service. If the motor is fine, you need a new spinning brush assembly.
The screw heads of the brush roll face towards the floor so you can adjust them while the brush is in the vacuum. When you turn them clockwise the brush comes down and gets closer to the floor for better carpet cleaning. You should also change the belt on that vac once a year. Just because the belt isn't broken doesn't mean it's o.k. Once they stretch out the power from the motor is lost and the brush won't clean anything.
