Get a new belt, put it on the center of the brush roll, put the plate back on, tuen the big knob on the front, it will catch the belt, turn it until it locks in place, put the noozle on the vac, lock it down, turn the knob in the opposite direction and it will put it on the pulley.

Is the dial on the head supposed to be turned to belt on or belt off when vacuuming


HI There,

This is a confusing system that Kirby has designed here. This is a source of many questions that we field on a daily basis. There is an exact procedure that needs to be followed when removing the head of the machine that has the roller brush and belt.

You need to have the dial set to Belt On when vacuuming, but when you first put the head back on after using the attachment hose, shampoo attachment, or replacing the belt, you need to first put the head onto the front of the Kirby with the Belt Off setting, then after it's connected to the front, turn the dial back to belt on.

Here's a helpful video that we've recorded showing the exact proper procedure you need to follow on your Kirby. This will also show you how to do basic maintenance on your Kirby's roller brush.


Hopefully this was helpful for you. If you have any follow up questions, or need further help on anything for your Kirby, please feel free to use the comment field here on Fixya, and I'll be more then happy to answer any of your questions. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback for me.

Thanks so much,

How do I replace the drive belt on a Kirby G5 vacuum cleaner?


Greetings,

I have shot an excellent video repair on how to replace the belt on Kirby Generation Vacuum Cleaners including your Generation 5 (G5). The belt change procedure is the same for Kirby Models G3-G10 Sentria. The video is below in an easy to follow, and understand video. Feel free to use the pause controls to pause the movie as you're fixing the belt on your Kirby.

I hope this video was able to teach you the exact process of how the Kirby belt has to be installed in order for it to work properly. Please, if you have any questions just request a clarification of the repair and I'll be more then happy to help you further, I'm always happy to answer any questions. If you found this video helpful, please kindly rate this repair solution as helpful also. I really do appreciate it, thank you.

Thanks for watching!

Manual please or help


Below is a link to GoodVac.com. They have a Kirby G6 Manual for $9.30. Although it is labeled for the G6, it is applicable to models G3 through the Sentria. ("G" = Generation)

Also on this page is a weblink to their "Online Kirby Vacuum Manual". It will explain how to replace the roller brush belt.

Hello,
Your belt is not properly connected. Here is the instructions to properly install the belt on the main power nozzle. It works exactly the same way as the shampooer head, so this should be of help...

As long as it is Kirby belt - you should be fine. Make sure that the shaft is clean and that you do not vacuum something greasy or wet (grease or oil will lubricate the belt and shaft will loose the grip -heat up and burn). Make sure that brush roll spins freely.
I am assuming you know how to put the nozzle on properly (if you not sure - go here)

Good Luck

The G5 manual is out of print, but the G6 and Ultimate G models are exactly the same and wil work perfectly for your questions.
