How to use my Kirby

How to use my Kirby carpet cleaner?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This is kind of a general question and I will try to explain the best I can. Most Kirby’s have a vacuum head and sometimes a shampoo head, the vacuum head is removable on most Kirby’s and the vac head comes off the front for a brushroll and belt change. When you vacuum and you go to adjust the vacuum head, raise the height adjustment all the way u to the top with your foot, then listen to the tone change, @ first you will hear air pulling thru and the brush has not hit the carpet as of yet, that is the sound the you are listening for, once the brushroll hits the carpet – there is a definite tone change and that is when you have it adjusted correctly, try to vacuum with it set that way, if it is picking up well – you’re OK, if not adjust if down one more click. Also remember to do a belt change every 4 to 6 months for good cleaning, change the bag more often because it will pup better with a new belt and bag, or if you don’t have a paper bag, take and scrape the inside of the cloth bag with the scraper provided in the small zipper section. Please refer to the owner’s manual or trouble shooting guide or to your local vacuum cleaner dealer or in the yellow pages, also you can use the Kirby factory or website listed below:

Corvetteking is on the right track. However, if the Turbine, which he refers to as the "drive assembly" is locked up, it is possible to remove the screws and clean and lube the 2 bearings inside. The where the fault of my turbine freezing up. A new turbine is about $40 so it's worth the few minutes to open it up, clean and lube it.
If the drive brush, the one with the long square extension, is broken, like mine was, the only thing I have found is to buy the whole brush block at Hoovers.com for about $27. I only need the one drive brush but can't find the part alone.
