Question about Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Unclogging drains? I've recently read (I believe it was on your Ebay site) that they can unclog drains. Can you please briefly give me the basic steps when doing this? What attachment(s) are used? How is the vacuum configured? ***Also - My Kirby is actually (according to the front label on the arm) a "Kirby G 2000 Limited Edition" Thank you!

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. Now, turn your massage cup (in your basic set of attachments inside out and hold it on the drain hole. If there is an overflow hole in the sink, you may want to cover it so that you won't be splattered with gunk. lol Now, turn the Kirby on and it will attempt to blow the clog on through the pipe. Sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't. :0) Hope this helps...

I am having trouble getting my dyson dc 23 turbinehead vaccuum to power up again after unclogging the brush rollers and emptying the canister. Everything seems to be in correct order and locked down as far...


I'm no electrician but sounds like an electrical issue. I'd maybe recommend visiting Dyson's site directly: dyson.com/support.aspx

I hope that helps. You may also consider contacting their warranty department.

My bissell spot lifter model 1716 won't spray water at all, how do i fix this?


ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.

My dyson 24 .....brushes will not stay on when vac.ing carpets


Hi there,

Your DC24 is equipped with a sensor which shuts off the brushbar if something jams it. Once you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions, and removed any threads or hair from around the brushbar, you should be able to reset the machine as shown in the video below.

You may also want to refer to our online Support guide:

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give our customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Our dyson dc07 is picking up but air not coming out off handle vent so suction is under par , any ideas ?


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC07. From what you've described, it sounds as if there may be a blockage in the cleaner - the filter may also need a wash. The easiest way to check for blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=4&product=DC07-BT-HEPA

In normal use, the filter must be washed at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it. For further guidance on doing this, please see the video below.

Following these steps should resolve your issue, but if you've tried this and would like further assistance, please give us a call free on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Jack
