How do I get my zipper unstuck on my Kirby Vacuum 100


You might try some lubricant like Vaseline ,sewing machine oil ,DW40 or even cooking oil and after you have soaked the zipper and along the track both ways use a pair of pliers or similar to grasp the zipper and move it in the direction that should open the zipper ! this might be difficult at the start so dont use excessive force in fact a push and pull method often works best ( or pull one way and then the other )because a realignment of the zippers teeth is often what is required and forcing the zipper can often tear them away from the material and a zipper replacement would then be necessary, other causes of stuck zippers are things like stray cotton or material caught up in the teeth and zipper ! If you do end up having to force the zipper maybe replace the zipper with a strong Velcro or a more robust zipper with larger teeth .

How To Attach The Carpet Shampooer Cleaning Attachment Kirby Generation 3 (G3).


Hello,

This is an excellent, easy to follow video presentation of attaching the carpet cleaner to your Kirby Generation 3 Upright Vacuum Cleaner. Please note that the model being used in the video is a newer model named the Sentria, but the process of attaching the carpet extractor attachment is identical on the Kirby Sentria and the Kirby Generation 3. The only major difference is that the Generation 3 does not have the lever that extends out to turn the belt to off. On the Generation 3 this is dont by turning the entire white square with the Kirby logo on it in the front of the vacuum cleaner.

Please feel free to ask for a repair clarification if you have a question on how to attach the carpet shampooer. I'm always, more then happy to answer any follow up questions there may be.

The bag latch on my Kirby Generation 3 broke. How do I get the old one off to replace it


at the bottom of the bag, there is a zip tie around the plastic part that turns & snaps on to the exhaust hole of the vac. also take a flat screwdriver & pull up the rubber under the zip tie...all the way around, like u would take a bike tire off a rim . then pull the bag holder/tube thru the bottom, then vise versa, when u put it back on.

We have an older Kirby cloth-bag upright cleaner--inherited from family member. How do we empty the bag? The model # seems to be "Classic III"


Take the bag off (turn it counterclockwise a bit and it will slide off the exhaust). Take it somewhere outside and holding over garbage container open a latch on the bottom of the metal bag bottom part (miniemptor). Now entire bottom will open and dirt and dust will start falling out. If there is a zipper on the bag - open it and insert your hand into sort of a sock that will allow you to grab chunks of dust and push them towards the opening on the bottom without getting your hands too dirty.

Replace release button on kirby 3


I assume you are talking about the release on the handle pivot. Unhook the bag so it is out of the way, take the hanle off, take the top cover off, then there 2 screws holding the handle oivot asm, take them out, replace witht he new one, making sure that the the piece that hangs down meshes with the transmission. Then reasmble.
