Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Open Question

For some reason, when I tried to put the floor vacuum attachment back on and vacuum the carpet, I realized that the belt was not engaging. the belt is in there and not broken, but it is not turning the beater brush. it is just hanging loose around the brush. When I turn the wheel to engage the brush, it picks the belt up, but when I attach the vacuum to the attachment, the brush is just not turning.

First remove the mini-emptor and check for a clog also check the fan for anything cloging that or the hose may be clogged

Make sure to follow this sequence (starting from the nozzle off and green arrows on the knob and label matching):
1. Turn the knob all the way to match the red arrows (make sure that as you are doing so the hook inside of the nozzle hoes through the belt and stretches it - you will feel that knob is prettu hard to turn)
2. Put the nozzle on the unit and fix it in the place with the latch.
3. Turn the knob back to match green arrows

Dyson 33 not sucking up good anymore -how can I fix this?


If the suction is good it could be the brush roll is not doing it's job. If the bristles are worn or frayed or the belt is slipping your vacuum may work ok on hard surface floors but will not do a good job when vacuuming carpets. Your model has two belts in the clutch assembly. When these belts lose elasticity the belts will slip rather than turning the brush roll at the proper speed when vacuuming carpets. The carpet fibers create a lot of resistance to the brush roll so a belt that appears good may not be working properly when used to vacuum carpeted floors even if the vacuum has great suction. I would recommend replacing the brushroll if needed and the belts or the clutch assembly.

I have a simplicity 7350 vacuum. The belt and roller have recently been replaced. It runs fine on floor mode and has no problems with suction. When I put the vacuum in carpet mode, I do not hear the motor...


the motor spins around a steel shaft that sticks out on one end, and the belt is driven by that shaft, belts are easily damaged and broken, meaning roller wont spin. Often a burning smell of rubber is noticed after motor shaft spins on stuck belt. cause is always hair./string/something at the three contact points. motor shaft and belt, roller and vacuum body become clogged. become familiar with taking cover off roller/belt, and cleaning Checking moving parts roller/belt come out easily and simple to clean...keep spare belts.

Brushes don't spin


Hello :
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.

The beater brush wont spin because the brush roll is always in the off position. Moving the carpet/hard switch doesn't turn it on.

Try this also please :
Things You'll Need: Phillips head #2 screwdriver Replacement belt for your vacuum model Spray lubricant, such as silicone spray or teflon lube.
1: Unplug the vacuum. Never work on an electrical appliance when it is plugged into an electrical outlet.
2: Turn the vacuum over and locate the plastic or metal plate that covers the rotating brush. Remove this plate.
Note: This plate is typically attached by a small number of Phillips head screws or by levers that turn and lock the plate in place. In either case, removing this plate is a simple task.
3:Identify the vacuum's rotating brush. This brush should have a black rubber belt wrapped around it, and stretched around the metal shaft of an electrical motor mounted somewhere toward the back of the vacuum.
4:Verify that the brush will rotate freely. Examine both ends of the brush to ensure that no threads, string, yarn, etc. have become wrapped around the ends and thus inhibited a free rotation.If there is foreign debris, remove the brush by sliding it up, away from the bottom of the vacuum. Remove the debris
5:Lubricate both ends of the rotating brush with the spray lubricant. Replace the brush into the grooves which hold it in place
Replace the existing belt on the brush assembly, or replace a broken belt with a new vacuum belt.
6:Verify that the brushes now turn freely when back in place and that the motor shaft turns as the brush rotor turns.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

Noise


Hi Linda,
Sounds like clutch problems, try to move the lever for carpet/floor back and forth a few times maybe it will free up. If it still makes the grinding noise, the clutch assembly will have to be replaced. Let me know, i can even walk you through the repair if needed.

DC07 Dyson clutch not engaging, thus carlperr beater not turning


As far as I am aware, the clutch mechanism cannot be dismantled, and even if it can, I dont know of anywhere to get individual components.
DC07 clutches are avaible on eBay reasonably cheaply, so best fit a new one.

No suction on carpets


The reason it doesn't pick up on the carpets is because the belt is stretched or worn and can't turn the roller brush against the resistance of the carpet. Here is a link to the replacement belts you need:

The suction still works but the primary floor vacuum doesn't. I checked the belt and its not broken. The engine that runs the floor vacuum doesn't engage like it used to


The belt doesn't have to be broken to affect the the way the vacuum picks up on carpet. If the belt is stretched then it will slip and not turn the roller brush properly. Here is the manual and belts you need:
