Turn the latch to release the nozzle as. Take off the bottom plate, remove the brush roll, check it while you have it out, put a new belt over the brush roll and reinstall back into the nozzle, belt should be in the center, put the bottom plate back on. Then turn the big knob on the front until it stops, this gets the belt ready to install. Reinsatll the nozzle back onto the vac, latch it, then turn the knob back the other way and the belt will be on the pulley and you are set to go.

Is the dial on the head supposed to be turned to belt on or belt off when vacuuming


HI There,

This is a confusing system that Kirby has designed here. This is a source of many questions that we field on a daily basis. There is an exact procedure that needs to be followed when removing the head of the machine that has the roller brush and belt.

You need to have the dial set to Belt On when vacuuming, but when you first put the head back on after using the attachment hose, shampoo attachment, or replacing the belt, you need to first put the head onto the front of the Kirby with the Belt Off setting, then after it's connected to the front, turn the dial back to belt on.

Here's a helpful video that we've recorded showing the exact proper procedure you need to follow on your Kirby. This will also show you how to do basic maintenance on your Kirby's roller brush.


Hopefully this was helpful for you. If you have any follow up questions, or need further help on anything for your Kirby, please feel free to use the comment field here on Fixya, and I'll be more then happy to answer any of your questions. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful, or leave feedback for me.

Thanks so much,

My Generation 3 Kirby Vacuum is giving off a burnt rubber smell when I vacuum. I have tried to raise the height of the head but it still happens. Can you tell me what could be causing rubber to burn? ...


The belt driving the brush roller in the power head is slipping. It is really just a big thick rubber band. Where it wears out it slips and burns due to friction.

Look at the bottom of the power head. There is a cover plate held with 2 to 4 screws. Remove the plate and you will see the roller and drive belt. Slip the roller out and remove the belt.

Go to your local vacuum dealer and get a replacement.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

How do i use the kirby shampooer


Hi,
I'ts a little fiddly - but pretty good when it gets going.
Remove bag from bottom connection by swinging outwards untill it clicks - then remove upwards. Unclip at the top also.
Undo belt by rotating centre pop-out handle and then top snib.
Assemble parts required - and clip onto the front - roller is underneath - but belt has to feed over the hoover's spindle. Rotate centre assembly to pick up the belt and pull it - then fit and reverse direction to fit belt into machine.
The pot is for the foam solution - make up solution and attatch pot. There is a large clear hose that joins pot to shampoo base.
That'sabout it.

Starting machine pushesair through pot - making foam which is then ducted into the roller area. Waste foam collects on the top.

This is from memory - so If you get stuck - ask again - I may be able to find the manual for you.

Cant rember how to replace the belt on the power head


1)First, you turn the square belt lifter on the front of the power nozzle until the red arrows line up (belt off of the Kirby's driveshaft but on the "hook" inside the power nozzle) 2)Remove the power head from the front of the machine. Now that it is off the Kirby, you can turn the square belt lifter until the green arrows line up. (Belt on, which means on the driveshaft on the front of the Kirby when the power nozzle is on the Kirby which makes the brushes spin. Now that the power nozzle is off of the Kirby, the belt isn't actually resting on anything but the green arrows will still point to belt ON ) This removes the belt from the "hook" so that it can be slipped off the brush roll. 3)Turn the power nozzle upside down and release the two clips that hold the metal baseplate on and remove the baseplate. 4)Grab the brushroll and pull it out of the power head. Slide the new belt onto the center of the brushroll. It will hang loose...it doesn't have to stretch around anything yet. MAKE SURE THAT THE BRUSHROLL SPINS FREELY!! If it doesn't, you'll burn all new belts quickly due to the added strain on the belt. 5)Look at the ends of the brushroll. The brushroll has three height settings..you should see notches AND NUMBERS on the sides of the brushroll's end caps. ONE notch (also #1) FACE UP on BOTH sides is the first setting and should be used when the roller is new. Three notches is the last setting used before a new roller is needed and should be used if the brushes are short and worn. Put the brushroll back in, making ABSOLUTELY SURE sure that the SAME NUMBER of notches and the same raised number on the edge are FACE UP on BOTH sides. This is important, as the brushroller will be unbalanced if inserted wrong. Also, one end cap of the brushroll is larger than the other and will only fit onto the larger notch in the power nozzle. 6)Replace the baseplate by fitting the front clips into place and then push it down in back and secure it with the two rear swivel clips. Make sure it fits securely down over the bumper on all sides with no suction leakage. 7)Turn the belt lifter to where the RED arrows line up, making sure that the inner "hook" grabs the belt and stretches it up while you are turning it. Once you have the belt stretched up, put the power nozzle back onto the Kirby and lock it in place. 8)NOW...turn the belt lifter back to GREEN. If the little green light on the power nozzle lights up when you turn it on, CONGRATULATIONS!!! The brushroll is spinning!!

Trying to fix new belt to Hoover Turbo Power vacuum cleaner. Don't see how the belt becomes taut. Fitting it around the roller, there is nowhere to fit the belt to, it just sits loose.


I looked at the user instructions guide online and saw where the 'other end' of the belt should be fitted. It was extremely hard to fit but eventually managed it. Thanks for this solution site. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.

How do you install the belt on the kirby vacuum?


Step 1: 
UNPLUG YOUR KIRBY VACUUM CLEANER. Before you go any further, take your time with this belt change. It's not that difficult, just a little different than most other vacuums. These belts are very easy to find on the internet. kirby-oldstyle1.jpg Step 2: 
You should be facing the front of your Kirby vacuum. The height adjustment lever will be on your right. Push the lever all the way down. Lift the light hood with your left hand. Turn theKirby vacuum belt lifter counter-clockwise with your right hand. Unlock the accessory lock. The accessory lock is located under the light hood. Move the lock to the left to disengage it. Remove the front of the vacuum cleaner.
kirby-oldstyle2.jpg kirby-oldstyle2a.jpg Step 3: 
Turn the vacuum belt lifter all the way clockwise until the belt drops down. Unlock the roller plate by releasing the two latches on the rear. Pull the roller plate up slightly and then off. kirby-oldstyle3.jpg kirby-oldstyle3a.jpg  
Step 4: 
Bend one end of the roller bracket just enough to remove the roller. Remove this end of the roller. If you need to replace the roller take it all the way out. Remove any carpet fiber, string, or hair from the roller with a scissor.

kirby-oldstyle4.jpg kirby-oldstyle4a.jpg Step 5:
After you have removed the old belt, slide the new one back on the middle of the roller. If you're Kirby vacuum cleaner has a belt indicator light, the roller will have a magnet built onto one end of it. It's very important to install to install a roller with a magnet on the same side as the indicator light. The roller actually will only fit into the roller plate one way.
kirby-oldstyle4.jpg Step 6: 
Place the roller back in the roller bracket. Place the roller bracket back and lock it into place with the 2 latches. Rotate the vacuum cleaner belt lifter counter-clockwise. You should feel the the belt catch. Look inside to make sure the belt is being stretched onto the vacuum belt lifter. Reassemble the machine. After you have reassembled your Kirby, turn the belt lifter cockwise, releasing the vacuum belt onto the vacuum motor shaft. kirby-oldstyle2.jpg
