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.

Kirby Sentria 2 burning smell (not belt)


Actually it can. If the machine has a defect but the good news is that is has a 3 year warranty. Take it to a Kirby authorized repair shop not a vac and sew and they will fix it right up....I am a factory authorized service tech for the Kirby co.

I have a kirby sentria. vacuumed up my son's headphones and immediately shut if off. took brush off, unwound headphones, put it back together. when i turned it back on, the belt snapped. so i went to...


Take the front off the vacuum and check inside both the front portion and the canister for additonal clogs. Sometimes something will get caught in the impellor, causing the motor to overheat. Since there's little suction and the smell, I'd guess this is what happened.

Smells (burnt rubber) like it's overheating when I vacuum


I would check the brush roller and make sure it turns good and replace the belt on it . When you smell burning rubber most of the time it is the belt .

KIRBY ISSUES! :(


sounds about right you should change that type of belt every six months to a year regardless if its broken or not. one other thing you should do is make sure the brush roll itself isn't bound up it should spin freely if not you can pull the plastic ends off the roller to clean any hair or thread out .
