Im trying to replace the cloth bag on my Kirby G6. How do I release the belt that holds the cloth bag at the bottom of the assembly? It is grey and has teeth that grab when tightened on the bottom of the unit.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There is a vinyl cover over the outside of the cloth bag and underneath the vinyl cover is a
ny tie that you have to cut off and replace with a new one and the cloth bag will slip off the bottom of the dirt cup @ the bottom of the cloth bag and remove the top cover and the bag should just come off, you can get the ny tie from any local vacuum cleaner dealer that does repairs or you can call the Kirby factory phone number listed below

Kirby sentria


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

How do you make it blow you?


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. 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....

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,

Do you know how to change a emptor assembly


http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=0&thid=725050 Generic problem for all Vacuums… Do you know how to change an emptor assembly? Posted by smcgee on June 30, 2008 I've got a Kirby G4 and I need to replace the emptor assembly. Do you know how to change it?
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Kirby mini emptor assm can be replaced by going inside of the cloth bag and looking for the ty tie that is hold it onto the clothe outer bag and cut the ty tie to release the mini emptor on the Kirby. The bag @ the bottom has elastic around the bottom and should come right off; it will be tight but should come off. The front of the mini emptor has a gasket so make sure the new one has the same small gasket also, and that will just turn and unhook. You need to find a new ty tie just as long as the one you are removing; either from a local vacuum cleaner store, the Kirby Factory Cust serv (Parts) or try the Home Depot or Menards or a box store similar to those. 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.
