Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
When switched on and ready for use, the brush rotates but the green light flickers continually when actually in use!....changed the belt cleaned all accessible parts etc but the green light still flickers and struggles under load, even after changing the height settings of the roller brush!....any suggestions as to the problem as originally prior to changing the belt a burning rubber smell was noted but we have noticed no change in performance of the machine after carrying out basic maintenance!

Only use a genuine kirby belt. not copys that are sold on the web. it sounds like one of the end bearings is jammed with human hairs, remove end cap and cut out with a stanly blade

Try a new belt. The ends of the brushroller are different sizes, so you can't put it in backwards. There are numbers and notches on the ends of the brushroll. These notches/numbers need to match on both sides when installing it. (probably need both ONES face up). Make sure that the beltlifter arrows are green on green before you install the brushroller. Once you get the brush in and the baseplate back on, turn arrows to red on red to lift the belt up before reattaching the nozzle to the Kirby. I have included a link to help with other potential problems. If you want a manual, or need any more help, contact me through the links on my guide page.

You need a new belt. When the green light goes out, that means your brushroll has stopped spinning. Here's how to change it....
Even if you just replaced the belt, this guide will help you make sure that you got the brushroll back in the right way.
Hope it helps....

The bearings can go bad in the brushroll. It may need replaced, even if the brushes aren't worn. Helpful link....

Here is the link to the detailed instructions for belt changing. When you take the brushroll out, make sure that the brushroll spins freely. If it doesn't it will burn up your belts and needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps...
