To unrap the cord from this vacuum you will have to do the following:
First turn the vacuum upside down and place head on counter and handle on the floor. You will have remove the base plate. There are 3 screws that hold it in place. Since cord is wrapped around the brush roller you will not be able to take it all the way off, but it will give you access to the brush roller. If the belt is still on the brush roller, I suggest you cut it, so you can lift the brush roller out of the base and that will make untangeling the cord easy. If you need a new belt here is the info on that.

Sanitaire vacuum real noisy..poor suction


It could be something has the hose constricted... You might want to do a little more cleaning inside other than just changing the bag... Have you seen the cat lately? Also check the roller brushes to see if they have something like string wrapped around the ends.
Have a nice day !!!

Trying to change the belt


things you will need Vacuum belt
  • Screwdriver
  1. Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.

  2. Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.

  3. Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.

  4. Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.

  5. Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.

  6. Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working

My Kirby Ultimate G does not have enough suction to pick up pet hair. Is there anyway this can be corrected? I felt under the vacuum when it was running, the roller is running, but I felt very little...


An Ultimate G has lots of suction. If you turn on your vacuum and the bag immediately inflates - that is how you can tell if your Kirby is moving air (suction). There is a more modern brush that came out with the Ultimate G Diamond and the Sentria that has stiffer bristles that dig up pet hair better.

Another way to test the suction is to spread some baking soda onto a hard floor and vacuum it up - you can see how much suction your Ultimate G has, or take off the vacuum head and put on a hose and test the suction at the end of the tube.

Ways to increase your Ultimate G cleaning efficiency. Take off the vacuum head and remove the brush roller. Attach your hose attachment and **** vacuum out the head. Put on a new belt, and remove any hair and or string or threads that may be wrapped around the brush roller. Put the roller back on and on the ends of your roller you will see that the ends spin and have numbers on them. If your vacuum brushroll is original - you could have your bristles rather worn and so you can align the #3 on BOTH sides of the brushroller. This would be a good time to consider upgrading to the Sentria Brush.
Remove the bag, and replace with the CLOTH Kirby bag. It has the best filtration and it has the best airflow (which increases what you are referring to as suction). If you want to go the cheap route - at least get the paper Micron Magic with HEPA filtration (but it has slightly less air flow)
Remove the side mini emptor from the vacuum and check to see if there is anything clogged up on either the vacuum or the mini-emptor.
If your engine is running and inflating the bag and you replace the belt, the brush roller and to the cloth dust bag - your vacuum should pretty much run like a brand new Sentria Vacuum. Your vacuum system is outstanding, but may benefit from a little TLC if you have been neglecting it.

The main brush will not spin


I would guess the belt is broken. That happens often. Get a correct belt. Remove the brush roller. Wrap the belt around the roller and drive peg. Reasemble -- easier said than done, but keep trying.

Roller wont spin


is there hair, strings, twine wrapped around the roller? perhaps this is the issue, is there still suction by the rollers or has this stopped as well?

Suction


Don't panic! Easy fix!

I was having the same problem, but I removed the base plate from the bottom of the vaccum (5 screws on mine), revealing the roller and the engine. Just behind the roller is an intake tube. Mine had a piece of wrapping paper stuck in it causing everything else to clog up.
