Question about Vacuums
Generic problem for all Vacuums
My Kirby G series doesn’t
Posted by mustang78 on Jun 30, 2008
My Kirby G series doesn’t **** properly anymore. A friend borrowed it, returned it with a scratch and now it’s not sucking like it use to. My son took the head nozzle off; could it be not put back on properly?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. There are a couple of things that you can check to see if it works properly. 1st replace the belt with a new Kirby Genuine belt, the average belt change is every 4 to 6 months, make sure the brushroll spins freely and when you install the brushroll make sure the screw heads are facing the carpet on both sides. B4 you start make sure the bell housing is locked down tight and when you plug it in raise the height adjustment to the highest level then drop it down one step @ a time until you hear the tone change or the brushroll should hit the carpet and @ that point vacuum to see if that is the correct adjustment if not drop it down one more setting. Also replace the paper bag with a fresh one and check to see if the outer bag is dirty and might need cleaning on the inside of the bag and not the outside. If you have further problems please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or call the Kirby cust serv dept listed below. 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.
