Hello,
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.

My kirby diamond vacuum is not sucking. the small


Greetings from GoVacuum,

When the green light on the Kirbys stops working, this indicates that your belt has either broken, or fallen off the cleaner so the brush is not spinning. You're probably noticing that it's not picking up as well without that green light. If the belt is broken, and you need to a purchase a new belt, GoVacuum offers these belts for sale here; Kirby Vacuum Cleaner Belts 301291-3 (3 pack) fits all Generation series models G3, G4, G5, G6, G7, Ultimate G, and Diamond Edition in a 3 pack.

Once you have the new belt, please watch our very helpful video on how to replace it, and to make sure that the belt is on correctly, and the green light is on.

Kirby shampooer not sucking water up


Hello,
Your belt is not properly connected. Here is the instructions to properly install the belt on the main power nozzle. It works exactly the same way as the shampooer head, so this should be of help...

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Kirby Ultimate Diamond Edition
You can cal the Kirby factory to request a new owner’s manual and they will describe how to use the vacuum on hardwood floors. There is a felt piece as wide as the brushroll area that will clip on to the bottom of the revolving brush area so that you hard wood floors don’t get scratched. The Kirby head will dial off and the Kirby head will come off and the attachment hose will connect to the front of the Kirby and that is how you use the attachments. Also contact your local Kirby vac dealer. 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.

Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment


You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.

NoSuckage !!!


Either the lid for the dirty water tank is not completely on or the filter inside has been pushed up all of the way to the top. You need to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
