Hi There,

Here's a very helpful video that we've shot showing you exactly how to replace the belt on a Kirby Generation series, including your Ultimate G. The video also shows you how to perform basic maintenance on your roller brush to prolong the life of the belt as long as possible. If you haven't already purchased a belt, and need to buy a new one, here's a link to the exact belt that's used on your repair:

    Sooooo helpful. My mom took the vacuum apart to clean the curtains and then fiddled a bit too much with the handle and the belt came loose. She left me a note to fix it. I couldn't have done it without your video. Thank you! (My mom thanks you too!!!)

Is there a manual I can download online for the

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My suggestion is that you contact the Kirby Co in Cleveland listed below and they will instruct you either to down load a owner’s manual or they will mail one out to you, there might be a local Kirby dealer in your area that might have a manual as well. 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.

SOURCE: smells (burnt rubber) like it's overheating when I vacuum

I would check the brush roller and make sure it turns good and replace the belt on it . When you smell burning rubber most of the time it is the belt .

My kirby diamond vacuum is not sucking. the small


Greetings from GoVacuum,

When the green light on the Kirbys stops working, this indicates that your belt has either broken, or fallen off the cleaner so the brush is not spinning. You're probably noticing that it's not picking up as well without that green light. If the belt is broken, and you need to a purchase a new belt, GoVacuum offers these belts for sale here; Kirby Vacuum Cleaner Belts 301291-3 (3 pack) fits all Generation series models G3, G4, G5, G6, G7, Ultimate G, and Diamond Edition in a 3 pack.

Once you have the new belt, please watch our very helpful video on how to replace it, and to make sure that the belt is on correctly, and the green light is on.

Take a look at the help article here. If bristles are worn you may need to install the brush roll in a different position (details HERE) or purchase a new brush roll.

Good Luck

Hello,

Kirby Ultimate Diamond Edition
You can cal the Kirby factory to request a new owner’s manual and they will describe how to use the vacuum on hardwood floors. There is a felt piece as wide as the brushroll area that will clip on to the bottom of the revolving brush area so that you hard wood floors don’t get scratched. The Kirby head will dial off and the Kirby head will come off and the attachment hose will connect to the front of the Kirby and that is how you use the attachments. Also contact your local Kirby vac dealer. 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.
