Replace the roller on my Kirby Vacuum Generation 3
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. In order to replace the brushroll on the Kirby G3 you need to dial off the belt and then release the lever to remove the bell housing, then there are 2 levers that you need to open then you can get @ the brushroll --- take out the brushroll and replace the brushroll and a new belt – make sure you change the belt every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning. Make sure when you put the new belt in the housing that the screw heads are facing down – then you can replace the bottom plate, dial the belt on to the belt pulley and replace the bell housing. If you need further help please refer to a 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.

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.

My Generation 3 Kirby Vacuum is giving off a burnt rubber smell when I vacuum. I have tried to raise the height of the head but it still happens. Can you tell me what could be causing rubber to burn? ...


The belt driving the brush roller in the power head is slipping. It is really just a big thick rubber band. Where it wears out it slips and burns due to friction.

Look at the bottom of the power head. There is a cover plate held with 2 to 4 screws. Remove the plate and you will see the roller and drive belt. Slip the roller out and remove the belt.

Go to your local vacuum dealer and get a replacement.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Kirby generation 3 won't vacuum. It runs and


You may have suction but if the belt is worn the roller brush won't spin and therefore won't pick up anything. You can get a replacement belt here:

PUll the roller brush out and make sure it turns freely by hand. If not clean all hair and debris off the roller brush, you might also remove the end caps (one at a time) and clean the hair out from the bearings underneath the cap (in the shop I use WD-40 and a non-serated pairing-knife). Replace caps they only go one way. If you can not free up the brush you'll have to replace it.

If the brush spins freely probably just need a new belt they stretch out over time.
