I don't know how to change the brush. HELP Kirby Legend II vacuums

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. To change the Kirby brushroll is to dial the belt off of the fan pulley and unlock the head to the bell housing, the head will come off. Then you turn the head over and remove the bottom plate by 2 levers the brushroll will be attached. Remove the brushroll and replace it with the new one with the screw head facing down to the carpet. Replace the bottom plate and install a new belt. The belt install on a Kirby is to raise the height adjustment to the highest level and then dial the belt off counter clockwise so it is loose and not on the fan pulley, release the top lever on the bell housing, then remove the bottom plate and unhook the brushroll on one side, slide the old belt off and then slide the new one on, replace the brushroll with the screws facing the carpet and re-hook the bottom plate on the Kirby. Then take the bell housing and hook that back on to the Kirby and lock it down. Then dial the belt on clockwise all the way and the belt should be on the fan pulley. The belt should be ready to go, plug in your Kirby and then do the step down on the vacuum height adjustment until the tone changes, then try to see id it picks up, if not go one more height adjustment and that should be the correct setting.

Hello, Help please, Using my vacuum, turned it off briefly, then went to turn it back on and it would not .I checked plugs which were both fine. Motor is strong, impeller is fine. The light comes on near the button to turn it on however it's not doing anything. Switch maybe? Just a guess. Thanks for your help! Alice
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It can be only one of 2 things, either it could be the safety switch or the foot switch and they would have to be replaced. 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.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. In most cities there are factory authorizes Kirby Vacuum dealers that also do service in most of the big cities other wise there are your local vacuum cleaner dealers in your area that also do service on the Kirby vacuums. When referring to the brush head are you asking for the bell housing or the brushroll. The brushrolls are very available @ either dealer but the bell housing that the brushroll fits into you probably will need to get that from the factory or the local vac dealers may have a good used one for less money or ½ the cost of a new one. Just a suggestion for you. 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.

Hi There
I have got a Kirby 2 HG vacuum cleaner which is around 20 years old now. It was going really well until last week when one of the capacitors which are connected to the brushes blew up. There is two capacitors one for each brush. One of them completely blew to bits and the other one is still intact. My question is are they the same size and where do I get a new one from.
I know it is an old machine, but I would like to fix it and get it going again. Any tips???

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Yes, I think you are referring to the carbon brushes for the Kirby II HG and it is a good idea to change both of them @ the same time to be able to wear the same. Having 2 different sizes could affect the motor performance and the carbon brushes / capacitors and it would wear uneven. If you are referring to the brushroll, replace it with a genuine Kirby brushroll and to do a belt change every 4 to 6 months. Please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area & in the yellow pages, if not call the factory or the website listed below:
