Question about Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
When was your Kirby made? If you have an older Kirby, inside where the motor lies is a single or double magnet with a spring coil attached to it. Within that coil is a filament wire held together with a shiny disk at other end. This filament does go bad from time to time and needs to be replaced. This usually is not a do it yourself job. If you can find the proper filament, you might but usually there are several types and sizes, let your local distributor change it for you.

I have tried to get a parts breakdown for your vacuum cleaner with no success. The way that then washers should go is the flat smotth metal washer on the inside followed by the fibre washer and the wavy washer on the outside. The waves are used to bite into the plastic so it cannot work loose.

Ha.. Im so stupid! The vacuum was in drive causing the wheels to turn when moving backwards thus leaving scuff marks
(from the rubber wheels) on the hardwood. Place the Vacuum in Neutral and turn the belt off and Voila, No more scuff marks! Thanks for all the suggestions!!! You all are GREAT!!!

sounds about right you should change that type of belt every six months to a year regardless if its broken or not. one other thing you should do is make sure the brush roll itself isn't bound up it should spin freely if not you can pull the plastic ends off the roller to clean any hair or thread out .
