Kirby Sentria vacuum -- can't figure out how to hook up main hose to vacuum floors

We've borrowed my mother's new Kirby upright Sentria vacuum cleaner, but didn't get the manual. Any idea how to hook up the hose? There's no obvious spot to put it in. The actual product name wasn't listed below, so we just stuck in a bagged upright, hoping the process is the same. Thank you!

    We bought a used one off ebay and the manual is in Spanish and we got the thing in pieces. How do we put it together?

First you need to press the foot pedal for the height adjustment all the way down to lift the front of the vacuum off the floor. On the front top of the vacuum where the LED lights are is a cover. That section will lift up by lifting just below the LED's. Once it's lifted up there are some visual instructions, but here's what they are saying. The little circle on the front divided with the word KIRBY is the belt release. The section of the circle with the word on it will pull out. Like a wind-up flashlight it will turn from lining up with the green arrow counter clockwise 360 degrees and lining up with the red arrow. This takes a little pressure to turn it. Now just above this circle, under the LED bonnet, there is a lever that holds this whole front end on. It must be turned also counter clockwise to remove and front then slips off. The reverse would be used to put the beater roller portion back on. Also this would be the way to slip on the hose attachment to **** through it instead. I hope this is a little clearer.

Once you lift up the light plate thingy, I found instructions on the vacuum and I think you turn it to the left and lift the bottom plate off and the hose thing plugs into it. It wasn't too difficult once I lifted the light thingy and wasn't afraid I'd break it. Good luck!

How To Replace a Belt on a Kirby Generation G3-Sentria Vacuum Cleaner


Greetings,

Below we explain how you can replace a vacuum cleaner belt on the Kirby Generation upright vacuum cleaner. All you will need to perform this repair is a new Kirby Generation Upright Belt, and some time. No tools are needed to perform this repair. This repair is the same for all Kirby Generation models including: G3, G4, G5, G6, Ultimate G, Kirby Diamond Edition, and the Kirby Sentria. The repair procedures have to be followed exactly in order for the vacuum to work properly. This should be done at least once a year even if the belt doesn't break, because these belts will stretch out over that year time period and will not work as well as a new belt would.

I hope that you find this video helpful. If you do, please be sure to rate this Tip as helpful by clicking the Thumbs Up Icon in the top right hand corner of the Tip.

Feel free to send me an email anytime if you have any questions on the repair of the Kirby, or any vacuum cleaner.

Hose for G3 Kirby doesn't fit Sentria


Yes G3 and G4 had different gasket thus the suction blower connector connecting Kirby hose to the unit on later models is different. You do not need to replace entire hose but just the plastic part that connects to the vacuum. You can find it HERE. To remove old connector you may have to submerge the end of the hose into hot water (not to hot to touch) so the vinyl becomes soft and you can bend it in with finger bringing plastic end over the lip on the molded end of the hose.

Good Luck

How to use air pump attachment kirby sentria


Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic cup with two hooks on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier.
