I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
On most Kirby’s the front head will remove from the rest of the vacuum, then you 1st you need to dial the belt off of the motor pulley and then release the front lock assm lever and the head will come off the machine, then remove the Kirby bottom plate and then slide the old belt off or cut it off and then slide the new belt onto the brushroll and then install the brushroll into the proper brushroll holders, then use the dial on the front of the Kirby and then dial the hook on the inside of the brushroll to the new belt and continue turning until the belt is on the fan / motor pulley and then reinstall the Kirby Bell Housing. The belt does turn very hard and look inside of the housing to see if the belt is on the fan pulley correctly, if not repeat the procedure. Also, feel free to contact your local vac dealer is you have further questions. 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.

Green light on power nozzle of Kirby vacuum, Model G7D


The green light is just to inform you that the brushroll is spinning. there is a magnet on the brushroll that makes the green light come on every time it rotates. also why it looks like the light flickers because the magnet only makes contact once per rotation of your brushroll. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I am trying to put a belt on my Kirby Classic vacum cleaner i just can't figure it out.


HERE is the belt installation instruction. On your vacuum it is a bit different how the brush roll is installed but I am sure you will be able to figure this out. Adjust screws on the both ends of the brush roll to have bristles sticking out by about 1/8 of the inch.
HERE is also a video on belt installation but the one with pictures is more in depth.

Good Luck
:-)

Vacum will not pick up


Due to the way carpets are made - new carpets sometimes have a lot of loose fiber. This is NORMAL and it may take 3-5 times to vacuum the carpet till it goes back to normal. Spitting out fuzz balls is a bit weird. Make sure you have the belt installed right - see video on www.goodvac.com. but the fact that belts keep breaking I am assuming that you have them installed right. Give it a few more belts and if the problem presists - let me know.

Replacing vacume belt


Take the nozzle of, remove the brush roll, put the a new belt over the brush roll, re-install and put the bottom plate on, making sure that the belt is in the middle of the brush roll. Turn the big knob on the front until it locks, when it grabs the belt it will be hard to turn. Re-install the nozzle on the machine and lock it down. Turn the knob again all of the way, this will release the belt unto the pulley.

G2000 Kirby HELP


I'm not familiar with this type of vacuum, but if it's like most kirby's the powerhead gets all its motion off the tapered spindle underneath the powerhead. IF the belt is installed backwards on this spindle then all motions are reversed. there should be an arrow stamped into the blower housing. the belt should be installed so it is nearest to the arrow in the direction of the arrow on the housing.
