How do I change the belt of a 3rd Gen. Kirby???
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. 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.

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.

Is there some trick to putting a transmission belt on a kirby gen. 3 ?


It would be very unusual to have a transmission belt problem. To access the belt; the handle, and switch cover plate are first removed. Next remove the 4 screws that hold the upper motor cover in place. Next remove the switch button by prying up gently on it's attaching lugs and pull it free of the switch actuating rod. 3 screws hold the transmission to the base. DO NOT remove the screw in the rear beneath the on/off pedal. By dropping the power drive assemby slightly down, you should be easily able to remove the belt.
P S: I have repaired 100's of power drive Kirbys, and have never seen a bad power drive belt. If the self-propel seems to work poorly, it is usually because the rear wheels are worn out.

the above link shows you how to change the belt on the g-series kirbys but it will apply to the heritage edition as well...the only difference is the color...some of the arrows may be missing on the front belt lifter knob...but they are little differences...

hope this helps!!!
