Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

The right, front wheel on my Kirby Ultimate G won't stay on. It seems to only be held on by friction, and I've hammered it and put plumbers teflon tape to tighten, but it still comes off within 5 minutes of vacuuming. Any solution would be greatly appreciated!

How to repair the front left wheel and height adjustment assembly on a Kirby G10 vacuum cleaner


The wheels are held on by a screw behind the wheel guard, i suspect your height adjuster has come loose off the spline, this can be simply tapped back onto the axle

My rear wheels keep poppping off. I've hammered and glued, but they won't stay on. Do I need new wheels or a new axle assembly?


Greetings,

You may need to just purchase the the little c-clips that hold the wheels onto the axle. Kirby Vacuums actually have a hub cap on their rear wheels that can be removed to access the axle end with the c-clip. If you take a flat head screwdriver, and pry off the plastic part of the wheel off of the rubber part, you should be able to see the end of the axle. There should be a little tiny c-clip at the end of the axle that holds the rear wheel in place. Is that clip there on both sides?

If yes, then you may need to replace the entire axle assembly. If they are missing these clips are available for purchase through many online websites including our own, govacuum.com.

If this repair didn't fix your Kirby, please contact me, I'm happy to try and diagnosis this further with you. If it did help, please rate the repair as helpful, thank you.

Right wheel slips off on Kirby Gsix . How do I fix it?


Hello,
The shaft is held onto the machine with two little metal pieces on the bottom of the Kirby. They are held on with screws. The rear wheels are held onto the shaft with a little tiny "c" clip.

Kirby Sentria shampooer


HERE is the shampooer manual. There is no suction involved picking up the water. It simply scrubs the solution off the rug and throws it in the tray in front of the Kirby vacuum.

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!

Kirby Ultimate G Upright won't stay up right


I figured out that when mine did the same thing, it was time to change the bag. It was too heavy for the handle to handle! LOL Hope that helps. Tracy

Cleaning upholstery with the Kirby?


it depends on the make of the kirby you are using but most kirby systems come with a portable shampooer and special shampoo. I would not recommend using your zip brush for shampooing purposes, the zippbrush is designed to loosen up dog hair, dirt, ect. when vacuuming. to shampoo upholstery do the following: remove bag from side of machine, place hose where bag goes, remove power head from front of the machine, place air intake valve on front of machine where power head was (intake valve kinda shaped like a pig nose with small holes on end) attach portable shapooer to end of hose and fill with water and kirby shampoo spray shampoo witch is foamy looking on whatever you are shampooing, rub into fabric w/a brush and let sit till dry. when dry turn kirby back into a hand held vacuum by putting powerhead back on front of machine and putting bag back on side of machine, then vacuum furiture. (make sure it is 100% dry before you vacuum because Kirby is not a wet vac!) Hope this helped ya out a little
