Hi redd79!

All you need to do is to lube up the hole where the bag goes on with either hand lotion or dishwashing liquid. Put the bag on and twist it up against the side of the kirby until it engages copmpletely. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad switch.

Just in case...

My Kirby G4 won't turn on. Everything is engaged as I normally do it, nothing is wrong with my power outlet, changed my hepa bag to a brand new one...


It could be a few different things. First make sure the emptor tank on the side of the unit is pushed all the way closest to the unit. ck to see if light comes on (that will tell you if you have power to the unit.) if so It is an internal problem. Or it might be, what is called the power foot switch. It's kinda of like the brain for the kirby there are 3 saftey switches built into it. they must all be working at the same time for the unit to power. If need be take it to a vacuum repair shop one with free estimates. this way they can diog. the problem and give you a repair cost, if need be. Hope this helps.

I have a kirby sentria and after I shampoo'd the carpets I put it back together to be a regular vacuum and now it wont turn on. Any ideas what could be wrong?


The only thing I can think of is the brush head is not on properly.If the head is not aligned right,then the saftey switch wont be activated.Otherwise,I'd say the saftey switch or power switch.Did you make sure not to run over the cord?

there are two saftey switches. one on the air input, and one on the air output. someting has to be covering each. USE the SAFTEY CUP on the input and the Hose on the OUTPUT. does that answer your questions 4n4l <unt?

Could be the a/c cord, a problem with the noozle not pushing the saftey switch, the bag emptor(bottom of outer bag) isn't on the of the way and not engaging the other safety switch. The other is a problem with the motor.

My Electrolux upright worked fine


Are you using the proper bag? There's a kill/reset switch that needs to be pushed down by the rim of the bag before the unit will run.

Electrolux Epic 6500SR Full Bag sensor working, Does not Reset properly


The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily


Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.
