.It should be helpful. :0)
.The Tech Drive problem SHOULD be able to be fixed easily and fairly cheaply by a vac shop or Kirby distributor. There is an adjustment that needs to be made, but it shouldn’t require purchasing any parts.
you can wash the bag. However you cannot wash the bag in the wash machine. What you will want to do is look for the screw or depending on the model, untwist the cap down on the rod next to the machine. that entire pole section will come off of the unit below with the bag there.
I recommend if it is warm outside to use the garden hose to spray it and scrub inside the bag with a scrub brush and some dish soap.
I usually throw them into the laundry sink and let soak, scrubbing with soap and water.
To dry the bag, a hairdryer or hang to dry before putting the piece back onto the machine.
.Im trying to replace the cloth bag on my Kirby G6. How do I release the belt that holds the cloth bag at the bottom of the assembly? It is grey and has teeth that grab when tightened on the bottom of the unit.
.I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
.There is a vinyl cover over the outside of the cloth bag and underneath the vinyl cover is a
.ny tie that you have to cut off and replace with a new one and the cloth bag will slip off the bottom of the dirt cup @ the bottom of the cloth bag and remove the top cover and the bag should just come off, you can get the ny tie from any local vacuum cleaner dealer that does repairs or you can call the Kirby factory phone number listed below
