My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was...


Few things:
Make sure the sponge and the valve under the sponge (water tank) is clean.
Make sure you follow the instructions (f you do not have the manual you can find one HERE)
See if the straw inside the water tank is not clogged (happens when you use toilet tissue or some other paper to dry inside of the tank after you shampoo)

Noise - if it is noisy al the time - it may need new shampooer brush roll. Also check the tray - bar brush roll bearings overheat and melt the tray... Never submerse brush roll in water when cleaning it. Clean it simply by lifting the shampooer nozzle and letting it spin for 10-20 seconds. If you have tu put it under running water - put it back in the shampooer nozzle (with tray and shield) put on Kirby and turn it on for 20 seconds or so. If it stays soaken wet - moisture damages barings.

Good luck

Kirby creating dirt under carpet?


It is possible that the height adjustment on your Kirby is to close to the carpet,which could account for the problem you're having.The correct height adjustment for your Kirby is this-Lower the height adjustment down until you hear a change in the sound,then adjust one more click down.The Kirby is at the correct height for cleaning.If the carpet is different in another room,adjust it the same way for each carpet

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I have never come across the entire belt hook assm has come completely apart, but I have seem other people put the assm back together, but I would bring it to a local Kirby vacuum cleaner dealer in your area and if for some reason they cannot repair the Kirby head and hook assm they can order you a compete head totally repaired, but that would be choice #2 or feel free to contact your local Kirby Vacuum Cleaner Dealer to give you a breakdown on how to put it back together again. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
In answer to your question, the reason it smells like burning rubber is because the belt is too loose and it is burning the inside of the belt because it is to loose, the average belt change for a Kirby vacuum is every 4 to 6 months, the tighter the belt the better the cleaning and always use the genuine Kirby belts because they are designed to work with the Kirby, there are replacement belts that will work and are less but they are made to the correct size but Kirby vacuums always s work better with genuine parts. If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kirby blowing out aire


Unplug the vacuum and clean out the hose that goes from the beater to the intake. The hose is either plugged with debis or has become disconnected or BOTH. You may have to use a screw driver to remove the plate over the beater brush.

Kirby sofa cleaner


Hi, my name is Jon and I have an Ultimate G Kirby and have sold Kirby and the solution to this problem it is very simple. All you have to do is first disengage the belt by lifting the hood and twisting the plastic thing that says Kirby. Twist it all the way till the red arrows meet up then you will know that the belt is disengaged. Next you're going to disconnect the front by pushing the small metal lever/lock under the hood to the right and the front end should come right off. REMEMBER put the vacuum on the highest setting so this will be much easier to do. Then what you want to do is connect to hose and you will do so by connecting the hose in the same manner in which you would connect the front. There is a perch for the hose or any of the other attachments to rest their "feet" on as you will see the end of the hose is contoured to fit the Kirby in the same way the front end does. Lock the hose in place with the metal lever/lock by putting it over to the left. REMEMBER to disconnect the belt when you take off the front end and ALSO to reengage it when you put the front back on. I hope to have solved your problem, and I'll talk to you later!
