I did get it to work! It was a struggle, but It finally hit that hidden switch just right. The hose attaches to where the bag goes, and it just wouldnt seat properly. I suppose there might be some wear there on the hose end that twists in .

I'm trying to use the blower part to blow up a air matresss and i cant find my manual need to know hwo to get it to blow...


hi
study how the bag attaches to the machine. usually you turn that bag collar a quarter turn counterclockwise to get that collar off. get ready because dirt will get all over.. then hook the larger end of the hose to where you just took that off. one of those smaller attachments that came with it goes on the other end of the hose to attach it to the mattress or use a small funnel or a straw and duct tape..

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.

How do i hook up the upholstery cleaner attachment up and use it?


First the bag assembly and head (or hose) must be removed. The hose fits onto the motor outlet in place of the bag. You will see a small arrow on the motor end of the hose. Line the arrow up with the "bump" on the metal fan housing and turn it clockwise to snap it in place. Be sure it is fully in place, or the motor will not run. Your attachment box contains an air intake guard which goes on the front in place of the head. Remember - the motor also will not run with the fan exposed. Turn the motor on and blow any dust out of the hose before putting the spray gun on the end of the hose. To make foam, the small foam screen must be attached to the spray gun outlet.

remove the cloth bag from the bottom it twists counter clockwise, un clip the bag from the top remove the head piece, turn the belt lifter clockwise and release the lever to remove the head, take off the head, in your attachments there should be a screen that covers the impeller that the belt rides on it goes on like the brush head, put your hose onto the bag port by turning clockwise. there it is it will not work without the screen cover. thanks Rene

I need to know how to change my kirby into a blower?


Raise the light assessory on the front of the vac. Remove the roller assembly by rotating the square dial as indicated by the arrows. Then you must attach the accessory that sort of looks like a 4 inch square open box to the front of the vac where you removed the roller assembly and lock into place. Next you remove your bag assembly by unsnapping at the top of the handle to the vac, then at the base of the bag assembly you must unlock the plastic base from the metal vac unit by turning it counter clockwise and then pulling off. Finally you attach the hose assembly where you removed the bag assembly and lock into place by turning clockwise (reverse of taking off bag assembly base). Put vac in neutral and power on. Now you will blow from the hose assembly.

How do I use the Kirby G6 shampoo attachment on upholstery?


Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic cup with two hooks on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier. This makes the vacuum blow out to power the suds gun, which should be a part of your attachment set. I like to use half water and half Kirby shampoo in the jar. Place the nozzle on the sprayer for foam. Since you lost your manual, you may need belt change instructions as well. Here is a link to my online guide that will show you how....

If this didn't help, I have mnauals available.

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
