Take the bag off of the vacuum, remove the paper bag, clean out the bag tube then put back on. Make sure that the tube is broken, it is, replave it.

Replace coupling to Kirby G4


Hi There,
I think what you are asking is how to fit a new hose machine end, (hard plastic bit that connects the hose to the kirby body) to the rest of the corrugated hose?.
If this is right it does vary with the really old models but for the G3 and newer which is everything up to about 20 years old it is the same and quite easy.
All you have to do is heat the end of the hose up with hot water - not boiling or you will shrink the hose and kind of twist the new end on. You will need to have removed the old one first which is the same just heat up and twist off.

Kirby Suction and Blower Connector


Yes you can. The end of the hose that mates with the suction/blower is flexible. You can use a pair of needle nose pliers to compress the hose end and force it out of the suction/blower connector.

Kirby G4 motor is very loud. It has suction but seams to be a lot louder than when we bought it in 1996.


Hi There,

Most likely it's just the fan that is making the noise rather then the motor. The way the Kirby vacuums are designed, anything hard that's vacuumed up such a coin, or other hard things can break the fan.

In order to check and see if it's your fan, remove the front part of the vacuum that contains the roller brush and belt. If you're not sure how to do this, here's a video that shows you how to change the belt, but will also explain how to get the front bell shaped housing off:


Once you have the front cover off, look inside the vacuum directly behind the motor shaft. You will be able to inspect the fan here. Turn the motor shaft which also turns the fan, and see if there's any cracks, or if the fan blade is broken. I think most likely you'll see the fan damaged somehow.

Here's a video repair that we've put together that explains step by step on how to replace the suction fan on your Kirby:


Part 2:


Hopefully this helped you fix your Kirby. Please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback if this was helpful to you. Thanks so much,

Kirby G4 without suction


change your belt, if there is suction from the hose, and you cant see any blockages in the area where the brush roll is then you need to change the belt, even if it isnt broken. putting your hand over the nozzle to feel the suction is not the way to tell if it has suction.

G4 kirby


ensure the safety switches are made properly by making sure the front brush assembly is fitted properly, you will see a tag that enters the machine making the front switch, secondly make sure the bag bottom housing is on properly and fully rotated so that its tag makes the switch on the side.
The only fuse is in the plug (UK).
Common fault is the mains lead broken internally, unplug from the side of the machine after removing the little cover where the wire goes in. You can use a kettle lead to test the hoover.
If this does not cure it most likely the motor brushes are worn.
