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.

Little or no suction. I don't hear any change just not seeing the suction and obviously its not filling in the resevoir for waste. I've only used it 3 x's so not sure where to start looking.


If it's new it may be clogged by a piece of paper or the like. unplug it an look all through it for something like that. If there is a cover on the bottom that can be removed, try that. The manual may have suggestions on unclogging it.

The vacuum became clogged and motor abruptly stopped, after unclogging vacuum will not power on.


Check the power lines coming into the suppley 9-10 the main feed came loose, you may have to solder the wire back, but there would be a short somewhere, or you ran the it to long while clogged and blew the bendix/motor

I have a clogged hose. How can I take it apart to get the clog out? or what can i stick up it to get it out?


Most vacuum cleaner hoses can be unplugged at some point. One way to clear a clog is to reverse the hose & let the vacuum **** the clog out the way it went in. If you have to remove the clog manually, a length of coat hanger wire, with a small hook bent on one end, will serve. Most clogs are near the hose ends, so not much wire length is required.

Vacuum Does Not Have any Suction


it could be clogged somewhere inside the hose. try unclogging it with a thin pole or rod.

Don’t have a manual for my Kirby - trying to turn on the blower to unclog a drain but can't figure out how.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way to get a Kirby owner’s manual is to call the Kirby Factory and they should have older copies or @ least they can photocopy an older owner’s manual for you @ the address that I will provide for you. I believe that there is a special cuff with a hose attached in order to do the unclog of the drain. I personally have not seen this done but I know the exhaust / blower port on the Kirby serves as a blower. You may look for that hose cuff for that feature. Or , check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. 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.

How do I unclog a bissell vaccum? I'm not just talking about unclogging the hose, I need to unclog the complete vacuum cleaner. HELP!!!


Well firstly, whats the model number and do you have the user manual to hand?

If the main hose has been unblocked, then it could be the main dirt channel which is blocked just after the moving roller brush panel. A long pipe cleaner or wire brush can remove this blockage easily rather than taking everything apart.
