How to make it blow?

Hello, I own a Kirby G4 and have unfortunately lost the manual. How do you get the hoover to blow/inflate. I have the tool kit, but I hear you have to flick a switch and fiddle with bits and bobs. Also, if anyone can upload the manual, would be fantastic. Cheers.

If you want the Kirby to blow, take the bag off down at the motor, and hook the coupling on your hose onto where the bag went. There is a little black lever sticking out of the vacuum that you can push forward with your finger. That's the safety switch. When you have the hose on correctly, it should push the safety switch and engage it. Also, there is a tool in your attachments that fits on the front of the vacuum when you're using the blower. It's so that you can take off the head of the vacuum, and put this other device in its place so that you don't have the brushroll spinning in place on your floor. It will have two hooks on it and look alot like a cup with a screen on it. It's to go in place of the head so that it will be pushing in the forward part of the safety switch. Also, put it in neutral before you switch it on. Good luck!!

G4 kirby

ensure the safety switches are made properly by making sure the front brush assembly is fitted properly, you will see a tag that enters the machine making the front switch, secondly make sure the bag bottom housing is on properly and fully rotated so that its tag makes the switch on the side.
The only fuse is in the plug (UK).
Common fault is the mains lead broken internally, unplug from the side of the machine after removing the little cover where the wire goes in. You can use a kettle lead to test the hoover.
If this does not cure it most likely the motor brushes are worn.
