    No, the noise isn't present when the machine is off. It is like it is the normal noise of a machine running, but louder screaming noise instead of just regular running noise. THanks.

Could be the bearings, especially if the machine is old or the dust filters have not been replaced regularly.
Check to see if the noise is still present after the machine winds down when the power is turned off. A rattling sounds means bearings.

How do i attach the shampooer to my g6 kirby


Here's an easy to understand and follow video review on how to attach the carpet shampooer to the Kirby Generation 6 (G6). The model that's being used in this video is a little newer model, the Sentria, but the procedure to attach the carpet cleaning attachment is the same exact repair on the Sentria as it is on your Kirby G6 vacuum.

I hope this helps!

If that helped, please be kind and rate the video as helpful by clicking on the Thumbs Up Icon below. If you have any questions about how to install it, please just request a repair clarification and I'll be more then happy to help you.

Thanks for watching!

Kirby G6 clicks while in neutral

Bracket cam assembly (see and buy HERE). It is worn so it does not disengage gears completely. On the part listing you will also find the instructions on how to replace it.

Just stopped running while vacuuming

When a vacuum cuts out while working, it usually indicates overheating. Most have a thermal cut-out, which will reset itself if given time to cool. The cause is usually a blockage of some sort.

My kirby g6

Try taking it to a local kirby office and ask them if there is anyone in your area that can refurbish the motor instead of replacing everything. If that doesn't work ask a local dealer or call the dealer that you bought it from and tell them that you would like to trade your old one in for a newer one. I used to work for Kirby and I can guarentee that the Kirby itself, straight from the factory only runs about $200!
