Question about Kirby G6 Bagged Upright Vacuum

Open Question

How can I change the belt on the kirby vacuum shampooer brush roller. There is no way to snap the roller out and it seems that trying to unscrew the end isn't doing anything either.Model 5584 renovation group is what is written on the shampooer attachment. The kirby is a heritage model 2HD - purchased in the late 1980's.

SOURCE: How do I get the case apart on my Kirby Heritage

From the rear, there are 3 screws on right and one on the lower left. There is 1 more on the front at the top just under the lamp.
You will also need to remove the safety switch - the plastic thing down and just right of the front screw. Take out the 2 screws. Pull the switch gently away from the case and try to get a look at how it's put together.
There is a bent rod inside with a plastic 'bar' holding it in. The flat end of the rod is on top - the round end at the bottom goes into a loop on a metal strip that is sticking out from the motor housing. By lifting up and wiggling, the rod will come out of the loop. Often, the plastic bar will come out and rod will just fall out. Just put the rod and the plastic bar back together (this is why you looked at it before). I tape the bar in place with Scotch tape or any thin tape and leave it that way.
The fan housing is sealed with caulking (or whatever the last person to service it used). A few raps on the side of the case with rubber mallet and/or sticking a thin putty knife in the joint should do.
You will need to scrape the joint clean and reseal it when you're done or it will blow dust like mad. Any caulking or gasket sealer will do. Just don't use high strength adhesive if you ever want to take it apart again without dynamite.
Btw, the fan pulley is a left-hand thread.

My kirby shampooer is only spitting out a little foam


lower the shampooer head all the way to the bottom setting, or one click higher if the carpet is really thick. This will allow the solution to spread the entire width of the shampoo brush roller.

Changing the belt


It is quite easy. Just take off the bottom of the vacuum encasing the roller brush. It should snap off or you may have to unscrew some screws and lift the cover off. Then remove the roller and clean it while you have it out. Now put the new belt on the motor shaft or pulley and slip the brush into the belt. Then replace the roller brush pulling the belt tight. Replace the cover and clean house.

Kirby G6 attaching fluffer brush on shampooer


Sure can,

You have two choices,
1.) To use your shampoo attachment, you'll need the fluffer shield, To set up the attachment seperate the tray assembly (the part that holds the roller brush) from the nozzle assembly (the part that attaches to the machine). Now seperate the roller brush from the tray (easiest way is to pull the belt). Insert the roller brush into the fluffer shield (it only goes one way). Insert the fluffer shield with the roller brush installed into the nozzle assembly the plastic shield will be faced towards the front of the machine. Turn belt lifter to where the red arrows match and attach to the front of the machine. Turn belt lifter to where the green arrows match and you should be in business.

2.) Your using the floor buffing attachment it the easiest method just put on like the floor nozzle (thing you vacuum with).

Make sure that the brushes on the shampooer tray are spinning, that the belt is resting on the driveshaft. The suction alone will pull up some of the moisture but the brushes should be spinning to gently scrub the carpet and deposit any excess moisture into the tray.

Vacuum brush roller with belt attached is off


It is meant to come apart for cleaning it up afterwards. Slip the belt over the roller. One triangular end of the roller is bigger than the other, so keep this in mind when sliding it into the cleaning head. Turn the knob to pick up the belt, just like on the vacuum's regular nozzle. Mount the cleaning head, then turn the knob to set the belt onto the motor spindle.
