On the kirby head is a square knob with the kirby name on it. use your finger and pull out the belt and rotate the knob until the metal pawl engages the belt. keep turning until it stops. the belt should be in the correct position to install the head. place the whole head onto the lower two tangs and lift up. now rotate the wedge clamp until it stops. then rotate the belt lifter till the knob is straight.

When we put the head on the belt will not work


Check to make sure the belt has been "scooped up" by the hook in the head. When you turn the knob on the head to remove it, it's supposed to "scoop" up the belt and pull it away from the shaft. If you don't have the belt on the hook when you place the head back on that means the belt isn't going around the shaft. You can just use your fingers to place it in position so the hook will grab it and then place it back on the body, rotate the know and it should be in contact with the shaft. The only other problem could be that the belt is broken and needs to be replaced.

My Kirby is not engaging the belt after it was put back on. I took it off to clean brushes and did everything according to the video but the belt will still not engage and green light does not come on.


The belt is not on the motor shaft. Remove the head from the motor unit. With the belt centered on the brushroll, turn the belt lifter a full 3/4 turn counterclockwise to stretch the belt up onto the belt lifter finger. ( Look through the back to be sure the belt is streched into a loop over the finger.) Plce the head back on the motor unit and latch it in place, then turn the belt lifter fully clockwise to drop the belt onto the motor shaft. Be sure the brushroll is correctly installed in the head. Setting # 1 should face the floor.

How do I get this darn belt back on my Kirby?


Hello,

We've actually shot a very helpful video repair on how to change the belt on your Kirby. Also, at the end of the video it shows you how to put the head of the vacuum back on properly. This video also gives you instructions on how to do routine maintenance on the roller brush to prolong the life of the belt. If you fast forward the video to the end though, you'll get an easy to follow answer on how to put the head of your Kirby back on.

Here's the video:

Wiring schmatic for kenmore canistar vacuum


Generally, there are two wires inside the unit which connect to the wiring going down the suction hose.  Since the unit is a/c...it doesn't matter which of them goes to which terminal.  The wires are switched in some cases.  Look for the open terminal.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELT ON THE FANTOM® THUNDER® AND FURY®? a.gif fantombeltchange1.jpg
fantombeltchange2.jpg
fantombeltchange3.jpg
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There are 2 types of Turbo Brushes, the electric type driven by a power head or power nozzle most likely used on a canister type vacuum or a central vacuum driven by electricity and there is an air driven power head. In either case the belt should be riding on the brushroll pulley on the end or if it is an air driven power head, sometimes the pulley section is in the middle, and the other end would run off the motor pulley / shaft. If you have a flat belt it is suggested that you change the belt every 4 to 6 months, if you have a geared belt, suggested change would be one year or so. I am not sure on the Brand of turbo brush you have, but you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or the yellow pages, or contact the manufacturer for a phone # or website address, some times if you have a air driven turbo power brush it may be cost efficient to replace the brush instead of repairing the turbo brush. Just a suggestion.
Example: www.turbobrush.com – this may or may not be the website address not knowing the brand name.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
