Kirby style 2 bags if it is indeed a bagged unit, some where special order with what is called a shake out bag, if your outer bag has a short zipper with a cloth pocket it is a shake out bag in which you take the assembly loose from the machine and open the bottom of the metal empter and take out side and basically shake out the dirt. and use the pocket to help get out the dirt. but most of these machines did take a style 2 bag in which you unzip the outer bag and pull the paper bag away from the tube and reinsert new one onto tube and finally zip up bag

Kirby heritage 2 wont stand upright keeps falling over


Is your bag too full? the added weight will tip over your vacuum, especially if you're using the attachment hose. Check the bag. If it's over the "indicator line", then change it. See if that helps.

Have a Kirby Heritage II vacuum. Need to replace a split fill tube. How do I remove the outer cloth bag from the mini-emptor, and then how do I take off the old/attach a new fill tube?


There is no need to remove the outer bag. The fill tube can be removed by cutting it off near the bottom and pulling on the support wire to unwind it from the neck on the mini-emptor. I usually hose down the bag and slosh it around in my laundry sink to clean it. After it dries, the new fill tube can be screwed onto the mini-emptor. You can wet the bottom of the tube with plain water to make it go on more easily. If you screw it on firmly, there is no need for cable ties at the bottom. Re-attach the top adaptor ( bag holder ), and secure it with cable ties.

I have a Kirby Heritage 84. Great condition except the part that connects the innerbag is missing. I don't even know what it is called. I can open the vacuum cleaner bottom and see that the part is...


The Heritage 84 had two different bag assemblies available. One is a dump-out bag. The dirt simply dumps through the bottom. The other is the bagged style which has a full length zipper to open it. Inside it should contain a "bag fill tube", and a top adapter to attach the bag onto. The oval fill tube is no longer available, but a round tube can be installed with a bit of efort.

I need to install a mini emptor on a Heritage II Kirby


I actually figured this out on my own. Just removed the rubber out seal between the bad and em-tor, then used a screw driver to gently pry the bag out of it's grove. The wire part of the hose actually unscrews from the em-tor. Reverse the process to install the new one. Gotta love Kirby engineering.

Is there a reusable bag for a Kirby Gsix


Kirby salesmen have told many that the new polypropalene bags are reusable, however they from what i can tell are not. sure you can empty them like you could any other bag but filtration is going to be greatly reduced as well as air flow which will greatly reduce cleaning ability as kirbys need air flow to work properly. also reusing these bags could possibly damage machine since it is having to work harder.
