In order to remove the outer jacket from your Kirby do the following.
Detach the top bag clip from the handle support. There is a plastic piece, just below the outer jacket, called the mini emptor. Turn it to the right to remove the entire bag assembly. Removing the outer jacket is dificult and even harder to put back on so this is what I would do.
Unzip the outer jacket as you were going to change the bag. Remove the paper bag. You will then see a long black tube, that has a 90 degree elbow at the top. That elbow is attached to the inside of the bag with a snap type strap. Remove the strap, then you will be able to move the tube, while you clean out the inside of the bag. When finished put everything back where it was.

Kirby g4 power will not ingage


There could be a few reasons. Try a different power outlet and check the cord and belt. Next there are two safety switches on the Kirby that need to be engaged for the vacuum to start. One is on the mini-emptor to make sure an outer bag is engaged, the second is on the front nozzle to make sure the nozzle or hose is attached. You can see pictures here.

Blue plastic bag holder on oreck upright detached - how to put it back in?


Amy, not sure from your description whether the outer part is what came off or the smaller, inner part came off. If it is the outer part, all you need to do is squeeze the two prongs of the inner part of the bag holder together and slip the two pegs into the holes on the outer part of the holder. If the inner part came off then you have to spread it, so that it will go over the opening on the handle, and then follow the directions I gave to install the outer part. Hope this helps.

Kirby Ultimate G Diamond edition vacuum. We were told you can wash the outer bag. Is that true? How do you remove the bag to do this?


Twist the bag emptor left to remove it from the upright then your need a sharp narrow pointy object (like a metal dental pick cost $1 in most stores) push it under the plastic band around the rubber on the bottom of the cloth bag roll it across and take off the plastic tie once off pull the rubber bottom part of the bag emptor take out the inner plastic tube and zip the bag put in the washer by itself and wash with soap and softner and let hang dry you can also wash the inner plastic tube with hot water and fabuloso I recondition kirbys and do it all the time.

The bag will not stay attached it comes off the rubber nozzle and dirt gets everywhere my old oreck had a much better design with the velcro closure.i am very dissapointed.


Please make sure that the plastic pieces that holds the outer/inner bags on the vacuum are attached properly. Push the outer (permanent) bag down against the vacuum. It will go over a black lip. Put first piece of the bag dock on..make sure it is behind that lip also. When you reattach the second piece to the dock, this will tighten the docking system. It will keep the outer bag on and keep the inner (disposable) bag in place so that it is catching the dirt...not the outer bag.

How do I use my kirby without upright handle, where do I put the bag?


The bag is left where it is. The hose goes on the front of the vacuum after removing the nozzle. See the How to Attach the Hose instruction video on the below site.

Kirby G4 Vacuum "BOOT"?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

The bottom part of the bag, which you referred to as a "Boot" is actually called a Kirby G4 Mini Em-Tor with Fill Tube Assembly. Kirby Part # 199493S. The part is only available to purchase with the fill tube assembly, this is the part that the disposable paper bag connects to inside the cloth outer bag.

Kirby has redesigned this fill tube, as the original design sometimes would cause the inner fill tube to crack. The Mini Em-Tor Fill Tube Assembly, part 199493S comes already assembled with the "boot" at the bottom, and the vacuum bag collar (the part the bag actually attaches to) at the top of it. You will need to remove the cloth outer bag from your old part, and put it onto the new "Boot". The cloth bag connects the "boot" with a special zip tie, which is Kirby Vacuum Bag Clamp. Kirby Part # 196599S. Where it is possible to remove the bag clamp without breaking it, I will warn you that this is no easy task. Spare yourself the aggravation of having to try and remove the clamp, and just cut the bag clamp with a knife or scissors.

You will also have to remove the top of the bag collar at the top of the cloth bag by releasing the fill tube from the inside of the cloth bag.

All of the parts are located on our website, www.govacuum.com. If you have any questions about the repair, you can get me on a live help, chat service located in the top right corner of our website. I'd be happy to walk you through this.

Thanks,

Take the front of the kirby off (the part that has the brush roller in it) and look in the big hole where the fan impeller is. Most likely this plastic part is cracked and needs to be replaced. Just turn the metal rod sticking out of the hole and the outer ring with the fan blades on it will be cracked off of the inner piece. It is a cheap part (usually $12-$15) but getting to it is not for the mechanically disadvantaged.
