Detach hose from cleaner.
1. Drop a coin or marble in one end of hose and allow it to roll out the other. If it doesn't go through, there's a clog in the hose.
2. Turn on vacuum to check suction at intake (where hose plugs in). If there is suction here, the hose is the problem. If not, check bags and filters, make sure they're new and/or clean, and try again. If it still doesn't ****, there's a possibility of broken fan/s in the vacuum motor/fan assembly.

My kirby heritage II vacuum hose has a cut near the end of the metal nozzle. Is there a way to replace just the hose or even just cut off the damaged section and reattach to the metal nozzle?


We do carry a brand new Heritage II hose here. I do not know how you would cut and reattach the hose without losing hose integrity. You can try submerging the end in warm almost hot water and pulling off the end, cut the hose, and squeeze the end back in. But your hose will be shorter and I am not sure if it will work depending on how it is torn.

Why do I have no suction from our EP754C vacuum? Turns on but no suction?


Hi, please check the hose attachment you are using, sometimes tissue paper or fluff can cause the hose to block. You will have to remove any obstruction. Another test will be to check the area where the hose attaches to the vacuum, switch on without hose and use a piece of paper to see if there is suction in this area, if no suction then the problem could be that the inner filter housing the motor needs cleaning. Best of luck.

There is a small magnet in the end of the hose. Under the phillips screw and plastic cover. Mine rusted to bits and stopped tripping the switch. A bit of a super strong hard drive magnet siliconed back in the end of the hose and all was fine.

It probably needs to be cleaned but, no that is not your problem. You have a clog somewhere most likely. You should take it to your local vac shop to have it serviced and cleaned

I have borrowed a kirby from my friend and i would like to wash my couches, please would you be so kind as to assist and let me know what tools i would need to use to be able to do so??


You need the upholstery attachment (it looks like a trigger sprayer with a plastic jar attached)You MUST have the foam screen that fits on the front of the trigger,without it,you will only get solution.The trigger sprayer fits on the end of the hose.The other end of the hose fits on the blower end of the machine.You must remove the bag,and attach the hose at this end.The trigger sprayer deposits the foam,and you work the foam in with a soft cloth or brush.When dry,switch the hose to the suction side,and vacuum out the foam.There is also an adapter (about the size of a styrofoam cup) that attaches to the front of the machine to allow it to be used when using the hose on the blower (bag) side.

Connecting hoses on Kirby G4


The hose attaches in place of the beater-bar head unit. To remove the head unit, lift the headlight assembly, then turn the square gray Kirby emblem counter-clockwise 3/4 of the way around until the red triangle on the square portion aligns with the red triangle on the base unit (this disengages the belt). Then flip the silver metal fastener that was underneath the headlight to release the head unit and remove the head unit. To attach the hose, simply line it up so that the safety button is engaged by the hose assembly and then use the metal fastener under the headlight to secure the hose to the base unit.

Dyson Animal hose collapses when using attachment hose


You have a clog in either your hose or your wand. You need to take off the wand and hose and inspect them.
