Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Handle on kirby ultimate g won't stay upright

I thought your guide was great and I would like to get my replacement parts from you, but I didn't see it on the e-bay web site store. I think I need a new pivot assembly switch which is what the handle plugs into. the handle just kind of flops around and frequently tips the whole vacuum cleaner over. I think the switch needs replacing. I can get the part but how difficult is it to crack the case and fix this? I noticed that it looks like I'll need hex wrenches to crack the case. I just don't want to get into the middle of something if it's something I can't or won't be able to handle. thank you.'

Just take the handle off, rermove the 2 screws on the front of the cover, remove the plastic piece on the back of the top, then remove the 2 screws and the top cover will come off. There are 2 screws holding the handle pivot on, remove those. Install the new pivot making sure that it alines with the transmissing on the left side, re-install the 2 screws and make sure they are tight. Then put the rest back together.

Wont come on or stay on


Check the motor brushes, may not always be making contact against the armature. Also there is a safety switch where the bag contacts when it is locked into position, sometimes they get clogged up with dirt, etc. While you have the bag off, pull the cord out of the socket and look at the 2 contacts and the plastic around them to make sure it looks ok.

Replace release button on kirby 3


I assume you are talking about the release on the handle pivot. Unhook the bag so it is out of the way, take the hanle off, take the top cover off, then there 2 screws holding the handle oivot asm, take them out, replace witht he new one, making sure that the the piece that hangs down meshes with the transmission. Then reasmble.

I need to clean my Mattress


You just use the small handle (in your attachment caddy) with the upright machine. No other attachments or hose is necessary.

Kirby Ultimate G Upright won't stay up right


I figured out that when mine did the same thing, it was time to change the bag. It was too heavy for the handle to handle! LOL Hope that helps. Tracy
