    We have a Kirby vacuum cleaner "The Sentria" Model G10D purchased while living in the USA. We need to know the input/output wattage. I have scoured the vacuum cleaner itself for the info and the manuals and it is not quoted any were I can see. We have recently moved to Australia and need to know what size up/down converter to buy to support this product given the vacuum cleaner is designed for USA 110V and Australia is 240V

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My suggestion is that you contact the Kirby Co in Cleveland listed below and they will instruct you on the wattage and also what you need for a transformer, or look underneath the vacuum and there should be a sticker stating the amps and maybe the watts, but also the information may be in the owner’s manual or they will mail one out to you, there might be a local Kirby dealer in your area that might have a manual as well. 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.

Need the manual


All domestic appliances have a rating plate which informs you of the voltage, wattage and energy rating. Its the wattage that will give you a rough theoretical idea of the power but in reality it only applies to the power consumption of the item not its actual sucking/pick-up rate.

I need to know if the round brush with flip lid is a carpet clean


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Here's an easy to understand and follow video review on how to attach the carpet shampooer to the Kirby Generation vacuum cleaners. The model that's being used in this video is a little newer model, the Sentria, but the procedure to attach the carpet cleaning attachment is the same exact repair on the Sentria as it is on your Kirby Ultimate G.

I hope this helps!

Wattage for Kirby Sentria G10D


The conversion of Amps to Watts is governed by the equation
Watts = Amps x Volts

For example 1 amp @ 110 volts = 110 watts
your case 7 amp @ 120 volts = 840 watts
unless you are running it at 230v but I don't think you can
I would look for one rated for Volt-Amps instead of watts
It's best to round up to be safe add 40 - 60 watts

Need help with upholstery shampooing


Unfortunately Kirby don't seem to support their Australian customers at all, sorry. (best they offered was a phone number of a dealer in Capetown) If you have a friend in the US who could send it on to you then you could get a manual here; http://www.gottahavebags.com/Kirby/kirby_manual.html Unfortunately they wont ship direct to Oz. Same deal here, if you have a contact in the UK; http://www.kevco-europe.com/acatalog/kirby_instruction_manuals_europe.html They even offer the video as well, If you can post back with your general area, I could find you a nearby dealer that sells the ultimate G where you might be able to get some help. Hope this can help you out, if not please post back with your location :)
