Question about Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
My vacuum keeps breaking the belt. I am wondering if I have the wrong size. Can you help me?
I also have a Heritage II,and also worked for Kirby for a number of years.When buying belts,ask for the G4 belts.The G4 belts have a knurled surface on the inside of the belt,which grips better.Also,the belt shaft may be worn down over the years,causing it to slip off.May just need to replace the belt shaft.Hope this helps.

As long as it is Kirby belt - you should be fine. Make sure that the shaft is clean and that you do not vacuum something greasy or wet (grease or oil will lubricate the belt and shaft will loose the grip -heat up and burn). Make sure that brush roll spins freely.
I am assuming you know how to put the nozzle on properly (if you not sure - go here)
